Adding External Plugins

Adding External Plugins from Clear

To use plugins used in clear follow the below steps.

we are going with select2 plugin which is already added to spark skin but we explain the steps here so you can follow it for other plugins aswell.

Install Plugins

first copy select2 and select2BootstrapTheme packages from clear package.json and paste into spark package.json

Run yarn install which will copy those packages into node_modules folder

Check if the packages are downloaded to node_modules directory

Copying assets to public

  • In webpack.mix.js use mix.copy to copy the plugins you needed to public directory.

    First copy the vendor direcory path in the paths object

var paths = {
    'select2': vendors + 'select2/dist/',
    'select2BootstrapTheme': vendors + 'select2-bootstrap-theme/dist/'
  • you can copy the path and the mix.copy from clear's gulpfile.js

mix.copy(paths.select2 + 'css/select2.min.css', destVendors + 'select2/css');

Also copy the necessary css files to resources/assets/css directory and js files to resources/assets/js/pagesdirectory.

  • then run npm run dev to copy the plugin to the public/vendors directoy.

Usage of Plugins
