User management

The theme comes with an out of the box user management option. To access this option ,click the "Examples/User Management" link in the left sidebar or add /user to the URL. The first thing you will see is a list of existing users. You can add new ones by clicking the "Add user" button (above the table on the right). On the Add user page, you will find a form which allows you to fill out the user`s name, email, role and password. All pages are generated using blade templates:

          
              <div class="form-group{{ $errors->has('name') ? ' has-danger' : '' }}">
                  <label class="form-control-label" for="input-name">{{ __('Name') }}</label>
                  <input type="text" name="name" id="input-name" class="form-control form-control-alternative{{ $errors->has('name') ? ' is-invalid' : '' }}" placeholder="{{ __('Name') }}" value="{{ old('name') }}" required autofocus>
               
                  @if ($errors->has('name'))
                      <span class="invalid-feedback" role="alert">
                          <strong>{{ $errors->first('name') }}</strong>
                      </span>
                  @endif
              </div>
          
        

Validation rules were added to prevent errors in the form fields (see App\Http\Requests\UserRequest). Note that these validation rules also apply for the user edit option.

          
            public function rules()
            {
                return [
                    'name' => [
                        'required', 'min:3'
                    ],
                    'email' => [
                        'required', 'email', Rule::unique((new User)->getTable())->ignore($this->route()->user->id ?? null)
                    ],
                    'role_id' => [
                        'required', 'exists:'.(new Role)->getTable().',id'
                    ],
                    'password' => [
                        $this->route()->user ? 'nullable' : 'required', 'confirmed', 'min:6'
                    ]
                ];
            }
            
            /**
            * Get the validation attributes that apply to the request.
            *
            * @return array
            */
            public function attributes()
            {
                return [
                    'role_id' => 'role',
                ];
            }
          
        

The policy which authorizes the user to access the user management pages is implemented in App\Policies\UserPolicy.php.

Once you add more users, the list will grow and for every user you will have edit and delete options (access these options by clicking the three dotted menu that appears at the end of every row).

All the sample code for the user management can be found in App\Http\Controllers\UserController. See store method example bellow:

          
            public function store(UserRequest $request, User $model)
            {
                $model->create($request->merge([
                    'picture' => $request->photo ? $request->photo->store('profile', 'public') : null,
                    'password' => Hash::make($request->get('password'))
                ])->all());
            
                return redirect()->route('user.index')->withStatus(__('User successfully created.'));
            }
