ORCHID uses the standard Laravel configuration system.
All parameters can be found in
config directory, and the
platform.php file is main for platform. Every setting is prompted with commentary summing it’s essence.
'domain' => env('DASHBOARD_DOMAIN', null),
Dashboard address plays an important role for many projects .
For example, an application may be at the address
example.com and a dashboard is at
admin.example.com or even at external domain.
To perform this you need to define which address must be accessed to open it.
'domain' => 'admin.example.com',
Remember that your web server parameters must be properly configured.
'prefix' => env('DASHBOARD_PREFIX', 'dashboard'),
The system installed on the website can be easily defined by the dashboard prefix, for example it is
wp-admin for WordPress, and it gives an opportunity to automatically search for old vulnerable versions of software and gain control over it.
There are other reasons but we won’t speak of them in this section.
The point is that ORCHID allows to change
dashboard prefix to every other name,
administrator for example.
'middleware' => [ 'public' => ['web'], 'private' => ['web', 'dashboard'], ],
You may add or delete middlewares of graphical interface.
At the moment there is two types of middlewares:
public, that unauthorized user may access to, for example, it may be
Login page or
Password recovery, and
private that may be accessed only by authorized users.
You may add as much new middlewares as you want, as example the middleware for IP whitelist filtration.
'auth' => [ 'display' => true, 'image' => '/orchid/img/background.jpg', //'slogan' => '', ],
Authorization page has several settings like background image and your project motto. Also there is an ability to completely disable the embedded authorization form and implement your own with the following command:
php artisan make:auth
'locales' => [ 'en' => [ 'name' => 'English', 'script' => 'Latn', 'dir' => 'ltr', 'native' => 'English', 'regional' => 'en_GB', ], ],
Generic entries created with
entity system may be localized, it means you may create the same entries in different languages; to add new language you only need to add new element to array.
'menu' => [ 'header' => 'Header menu', 'sidebar' => 'Sidebar menu', 'footer' => 'Footer menu', ],
Menu configuration only requires key and value that will be shown to user. By default there are three types of menus: upper, side and lower. You may add or delete them if you need.
You may see an example of menu usage there.
'resource' => [ 'stylesheets' => , 'scripts' => , ],
