Under Construction Package

Packages

February 8th, 2018

This Laravel package by Lars Janssen, allows you to put your application in an “Under Construction” mode and then only users with the correct 4 digit code can access your site.

After you install it usage is pretty simple. Register your secret four digit number:

php artisan code:set 1234

Then, add the middleware to a route you want to restrict:

Route::group(['middleware' => 'under-construction'], function () {
    Route::get('/live-site', function() {
        echo 'content!';
    });
});

This is a pretty cool package for those times when you want to share a site with clients and friends and for times when using a local share is not ideal.
