Frontend Assets

The Admin of the new version is built on top of AppShell v1.2.

The Laravel mix (webpack) compilation has slightly changed.

Update webpack.mix.js so that it look something like this:

mix.js('resources/js/app.js', 'public/js') // <- default js, comes with Laravel. /!\ `resources/assets/js` with Laravel < 5.7
    // These 2 lines are for Vanilo Admin (AppShell):   
   .js('vendor/konekt/appshell/src/resources/assets/js/appshell.standalone.js', 'public/js/appshell.js')
   .sass('vendor/konekt/appshell/src/resources/assets/sass/appshell.sass', 'public/css')
    // default css, comes with Laravel:  /!\ `resources/assets/js` with Laravel < 5.7
   .sass('resources/sass/app.scss', 'public/css');

It's recommended to use Laravel Mix v2:

In package.json:

   "laravel-mix": "^2.0"

Run these commands to install new dependencies and compile the assets:

yarn install
yarn run dev

0.2 -> 0.3

Minimum Versions

If using the Vanilo Framework, then the minimum versions are:

  • Laravel 5.5
  • PHP 7.1.3
  • GD Extension is required for product images

Minimal requirements for components (without Framework):

  • Laravel 5.4
  • PHP 7.0

New Buyable Methods

The Buyable contract has 3 new methods, thus if any of your models implements Buyable, you also have to implement them:

  1. hasImage()
  2. getThumbnailUrl()
  3. getImageUrl()

The support package offers default implementations for the new, image related methods:

  • BuyableNoImage: "Null image" trait for products that don't actually have images.
  • BuyableImageSpatieV7: Adapter for using images with Spatie's Laravel Media Library V7.

BaseRequest Moved From AppShell To Concord

If you used the Konekt\AppShell\Contracts\Requests\BaseRequest in your application, then you need to use Konekt\Concord\Contracts\BaseRequest instead.

As of AppShell v0.9.7 the interface has been moved to Concord v1.1.


There are some, run them:

php artisan migrate

Storage Link Required

For product image support, your application should have a storage link.

To create the symbolic link, you may use the storage:link Artisan command:

php artisan storage:link

Rebuild The Assets When Using The Admin

If you're using Vanilo's Admin, then rebuild your assets (eg. yarn run dev) to catch up with the updated look&feel.
