Wink adds a nice UI where you can manage a publication of any size. You can manage posts, pages, tags, and authors.
You can add photos, code blocks, featured images, social media & SEO attributes, embedded HTML (YouTube Videos, Embedded Podcasts Episodes, Tweets, ...), and markdown!
Wink uses a separate database connection and authentication system so that you don't have to modify any of your project code.
To install Wink, run these commands in the root of your Laravel app:
composer require themsaid/wink php artisan wink:install php artisan storage:link
Configure the database connection wink is going to be using in
config/wink.php. The run:
php artisan wink:migrate
yourproject.test/wink and use the provided email and password to log in.
Uploading to S3
If you want to upload images to S3, update the
storage_disk attribute in your
wink.php configuration file to s3. Make sure your S3 disk is correctly configured in your
filesystems.php configuration file.
's3' => [ 'driver' => 's3', 'key' => env('AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID'), 'secret' => env('AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY'), 'region' => env('AWS_DEFAULT_REGION'), 'bucket' => env('AWS_BUCKET'), 'url' => env('CDN_URL'), 'options' => [ 'CacheControl' => 'public, max-age=315360000' ], ],
Visit https://unsplash.com/oauth/applications to create a new unsplash app. Grab the 'Access Key' and add it to your
.env file as
UNSPLASH_ACCESS_KEY. Lastly, add unsplash to your
'unsplash' => [ 'key' => env('UNSPLASH_ACCESS_KEY'), ],
After each update, make sure you run these commands:
php artisan wink:migrate php artisan vendor:publish --tag=wink-assets --force
Displaying your content
Wink is faceless, it doesn't have any opinions on how you display your content in your frontend. You can use the wink models in your controllers to display the different resources:
To display posts and pages content, use
$post->content instead of
$post->body. The content will always be in HTML format while the body might be HTML or raw markdown based on the post type.
