In this tutorial, i would like to show you how to create modular system for your laravel 5.7 application. i will give you suggestion to write code with modular structure design pattern using nWidart/laravel-modules package.

you can quickly create module using command that setup by laravel-modules package. so basically it will create separate folder for each module.

When i had started working with laravel and i see the structure of laravel 5.7 like controller, views, model, migration, console, providers and helpers etc. I was impressed and i liked more. But still i was little bit confuse, thinking we can make it modular then it become more useful and understandable. If you create module for every crud enter level like country, state, city, item, product etc. It could be fantastic because it can re-use in your other laravel application easily. Modular structure approach is good because it more useful for us.

In this post, we will create Modular structure using laravel-modules composer package. There are several other packages for create module in laravel application. laravel-modules package create "Modules" directory and sub directory module wise. it is very simple and understandable. There are listed things on that folder:

Ok, now we are ready to create module by using laravel-modules package command, So you can simply create new package as like bellow syntax:
