In this guide, we will discuss how to setup a Laravel project, that uses Onboardbase to manage its secrets(environment variables).
This section assumes you already have a project set up in Onboardbase Dashboard. If you don't, please create an account and get started!
Create a Laravel Project
We would be deploying the demo version of the create project.
From anywhere comfortable in your terminal, run:
composer global require laravel/installer laravel new managed-app
Then, change into the project folder
cd managed-app and add a remote git URL.
git remote add origin [REMOTE_GIT_URL] git push --set-upstream origin main
Finally, start the project with:
php artisan serve
Install Onboardbase CLI
Follow the installation guide to set up Onboardbase CLI for your machine.
Verify installation with
onboardbase --version which would output the version of the CLI you just installed.
Authenticate Onboardbase CLI
From anywhere in your terminal, run
onboardbase login, and accept to open the page in a browser.
On the authorization page, enter your email, and a confirmation link would be sent to the email. Click on the link, and your CLI should be authorized - check your terminal to confirm.
Setup Onboardbase CLI
After successful installation, from the Laravel Project directory in your terminal, run:
This would list all your projects, select the react project, select the development environment and accept to add .onboardbase.yaml to your
This would create an .onboardbase.yaml file that has all the details you selected during the setup and that would be used by the build script to know which secrets to pull into your react project.
Building with Onboardbase CLI
Since we have all our secrets on Onboardbase, we would be using the build tool from Onboardbase to load secrets into the project.
To do this, modify your start script instead of using this:
php artisan serve
onboardbase run -c 'php artisan serve'
