Lighthouse offers the admin features to your application. Only registered developers can access the Lighthouse. It will give you the opportunity to impersonate user, monitor revenue and create announcement.


In the $developers property of App\Providers\LarakitsServiceProvider class, include developers email address to give them access to the Lighthouse.


If you want to define routes that is only accessible for the registered developers, you may use dev middleware:

Route::middleware('dev')->get('/newsletters', function() {


Lighthouse admin features are listed below:


Under the users section, you can search any user by name or email address. You can view the total revenue generated from the user, current subscription plan for recurring billing or purchased plan for one-time charge, and also impersonate that user by clicking little spy icon.


Under the metrics section, you can view your application performance such as monthly recurring revenue, yearly recurring revenue, total volume, and currently trialing users. You can also see which plan is more popular among all the plans of your application.

In the metrics section, you may see a nice graph on daily volume & newly registered user of the last 15 days and monthly recurring revenue & yearly recurring revenue of the last 30 days.

Larakits offers a larakits:kpi artisan command for capturing performance metrics. The command is already scheduled in your application’s app/console/Kernel.php file when you created new project via Larakits Installer.

Don’t forget to include cron entry for schedule:run artisan command to your server. You can consultant Laravel Task Scheduling Docs.


The announcement will help you to notify your user about any changes you made on your application. You can also announce about your new blog post and almost everything you want. You may consultant announcement docs for more details.


The Lighthouse frontend is built using ReactJS. If you want to include any additional section in the Lighthouse page, you have to extend Larakits ReactJS component.

When you create new project via Larakits Installer, a Lighthouse component will be included in the /resources/js/larakits-components/lighthouse/index.jsx that will extend the base Lighthouse component located in larakits/resources/js/lighthouse. You are free to add/modify any feature directly from extended Lighthouse component.

If you still don’t understand properly, you can check resources/js/larakits-components/settings/index.jsx component. It’s the extended version of larakits/resources/js/settings/index.jsx component.
