To install the project you need to open your terminal and type these commands

Clone repo and install composer

git clone git@github.com:karakhanyans-tools/larafast-rest-api.git [YOUR_PROJECT_NAME]
composer install

Create .env file

cp .env.example .env

Create APP_KEY just run:

php artisan key:generate

Run migrations

By default DB_CONNECTION is set to SQLite, feel free to change it to MySQL or any preferred DB.

To use MySQL as a database, update the .env file with the new database credentials.


By default, the project comes with pre-defined roles. If you want to modify them, update the database/seeders/RoleSeeder.php file.

Run the migrations and seed the database with the following command:

php artisan migrate --seed

Run Local Server

Laravel comes with a handy artisan serve command to run a local server. Feel free to use Valet or any other local server management tools.

php artisan serve

That’s it. Visit and see your API!

Don’t forget to remove the starter kit’s git configs. To do so: rm -rf .git - to init fresh git folder later git remote remove origin
