Another quick announcement from our team – we’ve upgraded our online adminpanel generator to generate Laravel 5.3 version. It was quite a big challenge, but now QuickAdminPanel supports both 5.2 and 5.3.
Basically, there’s a new dropdown field: when you start creating the adminpanel project, you choose which Laravel version you want to use. We are planning to support future versions too, as soon as they are released.
By generating and downloading adminpanel, you will get a full Laravel 5.3 project, which you can later enhance and expand any way you want.
With that release, we’ve also fixed quite a few bugs, both reported by users and logged automatically via BugSnag.
Customer support is a HUGE thing
The biggest difference with online version is that we provide live-chat support – see bottom-right corner on the page, provided by a free tawk.to system – it’s quite good!
Customer support, especially in live-mode, a really important factor – from the people I’ve chatted with there are a lot of different questions about adminpanel and how it actually works. And of course, you can provide your feedback there.
Only by talking to the customers online, we’ve gathered various opinions, (inconvenient) questions and added some challenged to our to-do list. Speaking of which…
Plans for the future
So, at first QuickAdminPanel was just an idea with minimum version to prove the concept. Now I can say that there are actually quite a lot of people who tried it and used it, also providing valuable feedback. So it’s time to invest more time in the tool!
Next, after talking with new customers (yes, there are already people paying for QuickAdminPanel!), we’ve gathered feedback and created a roadmap:
- Transform all the functionality from a package to online-version (user/role management, menu management etc.)
- Seeding the data into the final downloadable project
- Launching a blog with tips about adminpanels in Laravel
- Possibly take on a challenge to generate adminpanel for already existing database (it’s quite difficult to parse/analyze the database schema universally)
If you have anything to add, feel free to comment or use online-chat on the page.
I will keep posting the news about QuickAdminPanel from time to time on this blog, so subscribe to the newsletter and stay tuned!
