Getting Started

This is the official documentation of the forestadmin/laravel-forestadmin v2+ and forestadmin/symfony-forestadmin PHP agents.

Customization refers to a series of actions that enable you to personalize your agent, data source, or collection.

An agent is an HTTP server that serves the Forest Admin front-end application. A data source is a database or an API that you want to connect to Forest Admin. A collection is a set of data that you want to manage in Forest Admin.

Among other things, you can modify your agent by incorporating data sources, using plugins, customizing collections, and adding charts. Additionally, you can personalize your data sources by offering choices that cater to all data source types. Lastly, you can adapt your collections by including actions, fields, relations, segments between the data sources and other functionalities.

Customizing collections

The available customizations are listed in the sections below: actions, charts, fields, hooks, pagination, plugins, relationships, search and segments.

Using them always starts with the same step: use the customizeCollection method on the collection you want to customize.

It takes two arguments: the collection name and a callback function.

use ForestAdmin\AgentPHP\Agent\Utils\Env;
use ForestAdmin\AgentPHP\DatasourceCustomizer\CollectionCustomizer;
use ForestAdmin\AgentPHP\DatasourceCustomizer\Decorators\Computed\ComputedDefinition;

    new DoctrineDatasource($forestAgent->getEntityManager(), ['url' => Env::get('DATABASE_URL')])
        function (CollectionCustomizer $builder) {
            $builder->addField('title', new ComputedDefinition(/* ... field definition ... */));
