Cumulus demo video thumbnail

Installing the theme will install the following plugins:

  • all plugins required by Cumulus plugin,
  • RainLab.Translate (for multi-language support) which you definitely should consider for every app you are creating,
  • CumulusDemo which gives you the ability to seed example data for your new app using one command.

By using the theme you can install bare Cumulus application with a single click of a mouse and one command. But remember that this set is just a suggestion, skeleton.

Cumulus does not require this theme or CumulusDemo plugin. It is fully up to you how you use it.

The following plugins are required

This theme is an example skeleton of a SaaS application. In conjunction with Cumulus Demo plugin you can create new app within seconds. Just install the theme and run php artisan cumulus:seed command.

See Cumulus Demo plugin documentation for more info about the php artisan cumulus:seed command.

As I have wrote before you do not have to use the Cumulus theme or Cumulus Demo plugin to build applications using Cumulus. Although this is a great place to start and boost the creation of your new SaaS app.

TL;DR

If you want just see what the Cumulus plugin bare environment can do for you see the video:
