This guide assumes that you already know how to install and configure Laravel.

Install Ajax Comment System

  1. In your app directory, create a comments folder and extract all the files from the archive you have downloaded from CodeCanyon.
  2. Edit your composer.json file and add the following line to the psr-4 autoload:
    "Hazzard\\Comments\\": "app/comments/src/"

    And this one to your dependencies (require):

    "s9e/text-formatter": "^0.2.1"

    In your terminal/console run composer install.

  3. Add 'Hazzard\Comments\CommentsServiceProvider' to your providers array in config/app.php and run:
    php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Hazzard\Comments\CommentsServiceProvider"

    This command will publish the configuration file (config/comments.php), the assets folder (public/vendor/comments) and the database migrations *.

    Notice: The script assumes that you have already have the users table installed.

  4. Finally, run:
    php artisan migrate
  5. Head over to the Usage section to get started.

* The migrations will add 3 tables comments, comment_votes, comment_options and a role field to your users table. This field will be used to determine if the the authenticated user is an admin or a regular user.

Notice: If your app already has another method to determine that, then delete the ..._add_users_role_column.php migration from the database/migrations directory.
