How To Install Aimeos In Laravel

Using Composer:

Laravel package : Can be integrated into your own Laravel application. The installation is described here:

https://github.com/aimeos/aimeos-laravel#installation

stand-alone shop : Can be installed using composer within five minutes to get a complete shop system:

https://github.com/aimeos/aimeos#installation

Add these lines to the composer.json of the Laravel skeleton application:

"prefer-stable": true,
    "minimum-stability": "dev",
    "require": {
        "aimeos/aimeos-laravel": "~2021.10",
        ...
"scripts": {
"post-update-cmd": [
"@php artisan migrate",
"@php artisan vendor:publish --tag=public --force",
"\\Aimeos\\Shop\\Composer::join"
],
...
}

Afterwards, install the Aimeos shop package using

Composer update:

In the last step you must now execute these artisan commands to get a working or updated Aimeos installation:

php artisan vendor:publish --all

php artisan migrate

php artisan aimeos:setup --option=setup/default/demo:1

In a production environment or if you don't want that the demo data gets installed, leave out the --option=setup/default/demo:1 option.

Setup:

To reference images correctly, you have to adapt your .env file and set the APP_URL to your real URL, e.g.

APP_URL=http://127.0.0.1:8000

Caution: Make sure, Laravel uses the file session driver in your .env file! Otherwise, the shopping basket content won't get stored correctly!

SESSION_DRIVER=file

Then, you should be able to call the catalog list page in your browser. For a quick start, you can use the integrated web server that is available since PHP 5.4. Simply execute this command in the base directory of your application:

php artisan serve

Point your browser to the list page of the shop using:

http://127.0.0.1:8000/index.php/shop

Note: Integrating the Aimeos package adds some routes like /shop or /admin to your Laravel installation but the home page stays untouched! If you want to add Aimeos to the home page as well, replace the route for "/" in ./routes/web.php by this line:

Route::group(['middleware' => ['web']], function () {

Route::get('/', '\Aimeos\Shop\Controller\[email protected]')->name('aimeos_home');

});

Admin

To use the admin interface, you have to set up Laravel authentication first:

Laravel 8

composer require laravel/jetstream

php artisan jetstream:install livewire

npm install && npm run dev

Create account

Test if your authentication setup works before you continue. Create an admin account for your Laravel application so you will be able to log into the Aimeos admin interface:

php artisan aimeos:account --super <email>

The e-mail address is the user name for login and the account will work for the frontend too. To protect the new account, the command will ask you for a password. The same command can create limited accounts by using "--admin", "--editor" or "--api" instead of "--super" (access to everything).

Configure authentication

As a last step, you need to extend the boot() method of your App\Providers\AuthServiceProvider class and add the lines to define how authorization for "admin" is checked in app/Providers/AuthServiceProvider.php:

public function boot()

{

// Keep the lines before

Gate::define('admin', function($user, $class, $roles) {

if( isset( $user->superuser ) && $user->superuser ) {

return true;

}

return app( '\Aimeos\Shop\Base\Support' )->checkUserGroup( $user, $roles );

});

}

Test

If your ./public directory isn't writable by your web server, you have to create these directories:

mkdir public/aimeos public/vendor

chmod 777 public/aimeos public/vendor

In a production environment, you should be more specific about the granted permissions! If you've still started the internal PHP web server (php artisan serve) you should now open this URL in your browser:

http://127.0.0.1:8000/index.php/admin

Enter the e-mail address and the password of the newly created user and press "Login". If you don't get redirected to the admin interface (that depends on the authentication code you've created according to the Laravel documentation), point your browser to the /admin URL again.

Step By Step Guide Of How To Use Aimeos By AssistNix

This guide is an overview of the basic features to get you started. Aimeos is an open source project that is being updated continuously.

Using Aimeos is quite easy and complex at the same time.

Basic application setup

The Aimeos distribution is recommended if you wish to set up a new application or test Aimeos. It will set up a whole shop system, complete with demo data, for a quick start.

Creating Database

Make sure the database has been established ahead of time and that the configuration has been included in the.env file in your application directory. Using the.env file can cause issues, and you may receive exceptions stating that the database connection failed. The database credentials should also be included in the resource/DB section of your./config/shop.php file in this scenario.

Using the administrative interface

You must first set up Laravel authentication before using the admin interface. Before continuing, make sure your authentication setup is working. Create an administrator account for your Laravel application so you can access the Aimeos admin interface.

The host application you use determines where you can use the Aimeos JSON API (Laravel, Symfony, TYPO3). The first base URL must be retrieved from a configuration option or somewhere else. The resource URLs vary per environment, but you can find out what's available by querying the metadata from the base URL (via the HTTP OPTIONS method).
