Using this skeleton (remove this section after you have completed these steps)

This repo contains a skelton to easily create Nova Tool packages. It contains a few niceties not present in the default Nova Tool scaffolding.

First clone this repo to your development machine and remove the .git directory. Next run git init to create another repo. Create a new repo on GitHub (or another source control saas) and point the origin remote of your cloned repo to the one you just created. Here's an example: git remote add origin [email protected]:spatie/newly-created-repo.git. Commit all files and push to master.

Next replace these variables in all files of your repo:

  • :author_name (example: 'Freek Van der Herten')
  • :author_username (example: 'freekmurze')
  • :author_email (example: '[email protected]')
  • :package_name (example: 'nova-tail-tool')
  • :package_description (example: 'A tool to tail the log')
  • :vendor (example: 'spatie')
  • :namespace_vendor (example: 'Spatie')
  • :namespace_tool_name (example: 'TailTool')

Next run composer install, yarn and yarn production.

To use the tool in a Nova app add this line in the require section of composer.json.

   ":vendor/:package_name": "*",

In your Nova app add a repositiories section to the composer.json with the path to your package repo.

    "repositories": [
            "type": "path",
            "url": "../:package_name"

Now you're ready to develop your package inside a Nova app.

When you are done with the steps above delete everything above!

This is where your description should go. Try and limit it to a paragraph or two.

Add a screenshot of the tool here.


You can install the package in to a Laravel app that uses Nova via composer:

composer require :vendor/:package_name

Next up, you must register the tool with Nova. This is typically done in the tools method of the NovaServiceProvider.

// in app/Providers/NovaServiceProvder.php

// ...

public function tools()
    return [
        // ...
        new \:namespace_vendor\:namespace_tool_name\Tool(),


Click on the ":package_name" menu item in your Nova app to see the tool provided by this package.
