Envbar allows you to differentiate between environments by adding a custom colored bar above the top navigation. This should help backend users to identify the environment ( e.g local, develop, staging, production ) and prevent anyone from accidentally changing content on the wrong environment.

October Envbar - Intro

Features

  • Enable or disable plugin temporarily.
  • Enable plugin for Superusers only.
  • Start with pre-defined environments ( development, staging, production ).
  • Add additional environments and choose the color of the bar.

The full plugin documentation is available here.


Installation

Backend

Go to " Settings > System > Updates & Plugins " and search for the plugin. Click on " Install Plugins " and search for " envbar ".

Artisan

php artisan plugin:install Magenizr.Envbar
Downloading plugin: Magenizr.Envbar
Unpacking plugin: Magenizr.Envbar

Manually

  1. Download the code from GitHub > October_Envbar
  2. Extract the downloaded tar.gz file. Example: tar -xzf October_Envbar_1.0.2.tar.gz.
  3. Copy the code into ./plugins/magenizr/envbar/.

Configuration

After the installation, verify that the folder ./storage/temp/public has proper write permissions, otherwise Envbar won't be able to cache CSS styles. Make sure the name of the environment ( e.g development ) matches the value of the variable APP_ENV or default in ./config/environment.php.

Features

  • Enable or disable plugin temporarily.
  • Enable plugin for Superusers only.
