Orchestra Platform Cookbook

Updated a year ago



Orchestra Platform provide a solid base boilerplate to build your new web applications. It's not a CMS. Instead, it's a springboard to build most of the tools you wish you had available for projects that you're working on but never took the time to build.

Have you had a client that wanted you to create a custom application but at the same time they're also looking to have a robust Content Management System within that same application? If you answered yes, what are your options?

  • To build the application on top of WordPress (or other CMS system that you're familiar with).
  • To build the application using your favorite language and framework while also integrating your own custom-built CMS components in it hoping that it's easy for your clients to use (just like how they were to use WordPress easily!).
  • Or try to integrate both (which you know would be a bad idea from the start).

Orchestra Platform will solve this problem by creating a similar Administration Panel as you would see in WordPress wp-admin, so you can continue writing awesome code in Laravel but at the same time have CMS components ready at your disposal.

About the Cookbook

This cookbook is aim to help developers to learn and use Orchestra Platform 3. We once try writing in-depth tutorial on Orchestra Platform but feel that it quickly become obsolete once we release new version.

We're however hoping that by hosting this book via GitBook and the source markdown in GitHub it would be easier to for us to update this cookbook in the future.
