CodeIgniter 4 Application Boilerplate

This package for CodeIgniter 4 serves as a basic platform for quickly creating a back-office application. It includes profile creation and management, user management, roles, permissions and a dynamically-generated menu.


This project is still early in its development... please feel free to contribute!

The original author is agungsugiarto/boilerplate https://github.com/agungsugiarto/boilerplate, we only made a fork to adapt it to new needs such as translating it into Spanish and making it functional in xampp/lampp

Screenshoot | Demo On Shared Hosting



1. Get The Module

composer require julio101290/boilerplate

2. Set CI_ENVIRONMENT, baseURL, index page, and database config in your .env file based on your existing database (If you don't have a .env file, you can copy first from env file: cp env .env first). If the database does not exist, create the database first.

# .env file
CI_ENVIRONMENT = development

app.baseURL = 'http://localhost:8080'
app.indexPage = ''

database.default.hostname = localhost
database.default.database = boilerplate
database.default.username = root
database.default.password =
database.default.DBDriver = MySQLi

3. Run publish auth

php spark auth:publish

Publish Migration? [y, n]: y
  created: Database/Migrations/2017-11-20-223112_create_auth_tables.php
  Remember to run `spark migrate -all` to migrate the database.
Publish Models? [y, n]: n
Publish Entities? [y, n]: n
Publish Controller? [y, n]: n
Publish Views? [y, n]: n
Publish Filters? [y, n]: n
Publish Config file? [y, n]: y
  created: Config/Auth.php
Publish Language file? [y, n]: n

NOTE: Everything about how to configure auth you can find add Myth/Auth.

Is it ready yet? Not so fast!! ;-) After publishing Config/Auth.php you need to change public $views with these lines below:

public $views = [
    'login'           => 'julio101290\boilerplate\Views\Authentication\login',
    'register'        => 'julio101290\boilerplate\Views\Authentication\register',
    'forgot'          => 'julio101290\boilerplate\Views\Authentication\forgot',
    'reset'           => 'julio101290\boilerplate\Views\Authentication\reset',
    'emailForgot'     => 'julio101290\boilerplate\Views\Authentication\emails\forgot',
    'emailActivation' => 'julio101290\boilerplate\Views\Authentication\emails\activation',

Open app\Config\Filters.php, find $aliases and add these lines below:

public $aliases = [
    'login'      => \Myth\Auth\Filters\LoginFilter::class,
    'role'       => \julio101290\boilerplate\Filters\RoleFilter::class,
    'permission' => \julio101290\boilerplate\Filters\PermissionFilter::class,

4. Run publish, migrate and seed boilerplate

php spark boilerplate:install

5. Run development server:

php spark serve

6. Open in browser http://localhost:8080/admin

Default user and password
| No | User   | Password    |
| 1  | admin  | super-admin |
| 2  | user   | super-user  |


Config Boilerplate

You can configure default dashboard controller and backend theme in app\Config\Boilerplate.php,

class Boilerplate extends BaseConfig
    public $appName = 'Boilerplate';

    public $dashboard = [
        'namespace'  => 'julio101290\boilerplate\Controllers',
        'controller' => 'DashboardController::index',
        'filter'     => 'permission:back-office',
// App/Config/Boilerplate.php


You can find how it works with the read code routes, controller and views etc. Finnally... Happy Coding!
