Panel Builder



Filament requires the following to run:

  • PHP 8.1+
  • Laravel v10.0+
  • Livewire v3.0+


If you are upgrading from Filament v2, please review the upgrade guide.

Install the Filament Panel Builder by running the following commands in your Laravel project directory:

composer require filament/filament:"^3.2" -W
php artisan filament:install --panels

This will create and register a new Laravel service provider called app/Providers/Filament/AdminPanelProvider.php.

If you get an error when accessing your panel, check that the service provider was registered in bootstrap/providers.php (Laravel 11 and above) or config/app.php (Laravel 10 and below). If not, you should manually add it.

Create a user

You can create a new user account with the following command:

php artisan make:filament-user

Open /admin in your web browser, sign in, and start building your app!

Using other Filament packages

The Filament Panel Builder pre-installs the Form Builder, Table Builder, Notifications, Actions, Infolists, and Widgets packages. No other installation steps are required to use these packages within a panel.

Improving Filament panel performance

Caching Blade Icons

You may wish to consider running php artisan icons:cache locally, and also in your deployment script. This is because Filament uses the Blade Icons package, which can be much more performant when cached.

Caching Filament components

You may also wish to consider running php artisan filament:cache-components in your deployment script, especially if you have large numbers of components (resources, pages, widgets, relation managers, custom Livewire components, etc.). This will create cache files in the bootstrap/cache/filament directory of your application, which contain indexes for each type of component. This can significantly improve the performance of Filament in some apps, as it reduces the number of files that need to be scanned and auto-discovered for components.

However, if you are actively developing your app locally, you should avoid using this command, as it will prevent any new components from being discovered until the cache is cleared or rebuilt.

You can clear the cache at any time without rebuilding it by running php artisan filament:clear-cached-components.

Enabling OPcache on your server

From the Laravel Forge documentation:

Optimizing the PHP OPcache for production will configure OPcache to store your compiled PHP code in memory to greatly improve performance.

Please use a search engine to find the relevant OPcache setup instructions for your environment.

Optimizing your Laravel app

You should also consider optimizing your Laravel app for production by running php artisan optimize in your deployment script. This will cache the configuration files and routes.

Deploying to production

Allowing users to access a panel

By default, all User models can access Filament locally. However, when deploying to production, you must update your App\Models\User.php to implement the FilamentUser contract — ensuring that only the correct users can access your panel:

namespace App\Models;
use Filament\Models\Contracts\FilamentUser;
use Filament\Panel;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;
class User extends Authenticatable implements FilamentUser
// ...
public function canAccessPanel(Panel $panel): bool
return str_ends_with($this->email, '') && $this->hasVerifiedEmail();

If you don't complete these steps, a 403 Forbidden error will be returned when accessing the app in production.

Publishing configuration

You can publish the Filament package configuration (if needed) using the following command:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=filament-config

Publishing translations

You can publish the language files for translations (if needed) with the following command:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=filament-panels-translations

Since this package depends on other Filament packages, you can publish the language files for those packages with the following commands:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=filament-actions-translations
php artisan vendor:publish --tag=filament-forms-translations
php artisan vendor:publish --tag=filament-infolists-translations
php artisan vendor:publish --tag=filament-notifications-translations
php artisan vendor:publish --tag=filament-tables-translations
php artisan vendor:publish --tag=filament-translations


Upgrading from Filament v2? Please review the upgrade guide.

Filament automatically upgrades to the latest non-breaking version when you run composer update. After any updates, all Laravel caches need to be cleared, and frontend assets need to be republished. You can do this all at once using the filament:upgrade command, which should have been added to your composer.json file when you ran filament:install the first time:

"post-autoload-dump": [
// ...
"@php artisan filament:upgrade"

Please note that filament:upgrade does not actually handle the update process, as Composer does that already. If you're upgrading manually without a post-autoload-dump hook, you can run the command yourself:

composer update
php artisan filament:upgrade
