Laravel Media Manager 0.1.0 beta

This package is still under development.

Laravel 4 advanced media manager (file manager and uploader) package based on elFinder 2.1. Inspired by laravel-elfinder package developed by Barry vd. Heuvel. Note that this package is still under development. You can use this file manager in Laravel 4 as a standalone media manager or as a plugin for TinyMCE or CKEditor. For more info take a look at files in src/views folder.


First of all you should add laravel-media-manager package to your composer.json file using this line:

"ahmadazimi/laravel-media-manager": "dev-master",

Add the MediaManagerServiceProvider to your application providers by adding this line to providers array in app/config/app.php:


To copy the Media Manager assets to the public folder, using the following artisan command:

php artisan mediamanager:publish

Also remember to publish the assets after each update (or add the command to your post-update-cmd in composer.json)

You can now add the routes for elFinder to your routes.php

Route::group(array('before' => 'auth'), function()
        \Route::get('media', 'W3G\MediaManager\MediaManagerController@showStandalone');
        \Route::any('media/connector', 'W3G\MediaManager\MediaManagerController@connector');

Of course you can define your own filters/routes if you want.


The default configuration requires a directory called 'media' in the public folder. You can change this by publishing the config file.

php artisan config:publish ahmadazimi/laravel-media-manager

In your app/config/packages/ahmadazimi/laravel-media-manager, you can change the default folder, the access callback or define your own roots and also some extra parameters for elFinder.
