Laravel Lunar: What is it?

You can create a lunar-themed online store with its robust features, scalability, and flexibility by using Laravel Lunar, a headless ecommerce platform that integrates seamlessly with Laravel.

What You Need Before We Begin

The following are the essentials you'll need before you begin the installation process:

The Installation Process

We'll break down the installation process step by step now that you've got all your ducks in a row:

1 - Create a Laravel Lunar Project

Using the Laravel installer, create a new Laravel project as follows:

laravel new lunar-ecommerce

2. Configure Your Database

Next, you'll need to specify the database type, host, username, and password in the .env file at the root of your project.

3. Install Laravel Lunar

Now, let's bring it into the mix. Navigate to your project's root directory and execute this command:

composer require lunarphp/lunar

There are certain relationships that must be set up in the User model for certain parts of the core to work. You must add this trait to all models that represent users.

use Lunar\Base\Traits\LunarUser;
// ...

class User extends Authenticatable
    use LunarUser;
    // ...

4. Run the Artisan Installer

php artisan lunar:install

This will take you through a set of questions to configure your Lunar install. The process includes

  • Creating a default admin user (if required)

  • Seeding initial data

  • Inviting you to star our repo on GitHub ⭐

5. Publish Configuration

By running this command, you can publish the Laravel Lunar configuration files:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=lunar

6. Publish Migrations

You can optionally publish Lunar migrations so they're added to your Laravel app

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=lunar.migrations
