  1. In order to install Laratrust in your Laravel project, just run the composer require command from your terminal:

    composer require "santigarcor/laratrust:4.0.*"


If you are using Laravel 5.5 you don’t need to do steps 2 and 3.

  1. Then in your config/app.php add the following to the providers array:

  2. In the same config/app.php add the following to the aliases array:

    'Laratrust'   => Laratrust\LaratrustFacade::class,
  3. Run the next command to publish all the configuration files:

    php artisan vendor:publish --tag="laratrust"


If this command did not publish any files, chances are, the Laratrust service provider hasn’t been registered. Try clearing your configuration cache:

php artisan config:clear
  1. If you are going to use Middleware you also need to add the following to routeMiddleware array in app/Http/Kernel.php:

    'role' => \Laratrust\Middleware\LaratrustRole::class,
    'permission' => \Laratrust\Middleware\LaratrustPermission::class,
    'ability' => \Laratrust\Middleware\LaratrustAbility::class,
