Laravel Volt is an admin dashboard template that offers a comprehensive design and development toolbox for personal and commercial projects. It comes with handcrafted UI elements tailored for Bootstrap 5 and an out-of-the-box Laravel backend. With Livewire integration, you can create dynamic interfaces without leaving your favorite framework. And when combined with Alpine.js, you have the perfect combo for your next big project.

In this article, we’ll provide a brief overview of Laravel Volt, its features, and a getting started guide to help you set up the project on your local development environment.

Getting Started

Before you start, ensure you have an Apache local environment with PHP and MySQL installed. You will also need to install Composer, a dependency manager for PHP.

  1. Download the project’s zip, then copy and paste the volt-dashboard-master folder into your projects folder. Rename the folder to your project’s name.
  2. Ensure Node and Composer are locally installed.
  3. Run the following commands to download all project dependencies:
composer install

Now before running npm, and if you are running a new npm version I’ll recommend you doing some updates before and use gulp-dart-sass instead of gulp-sass

  1. Replace "gulp-sass": "4.0.2" with "gulp-dart-sass": "^1.0.2" in your devDependencies in your package.json file. The gulp-dart-sass package is a drop-in replacement for gulp-sass that uses the Dart Sass compiler, which is more compatible with newer Node.js versions.
  2. Replace "node-sass": "^6.0.0" with "sass": "^1.43.4" in your dependencies in your package.json file.
  3. Update your scripts section in package.json to replace node-sass with sass:
"scripts": {
    "scss": "sass resources/scss:css",
npm install
  1. To compile all the SCSS files under resources/scss into a single CSS file located in public/css, run the following command:
npm run scss
  1. Copy .env.example to .env and update the configurations (mainly the database configuration).
  2. In your terminal, run php artisan key:generate.
  3. Run php artisan migrate --seed to create the database tables and seed them.
  4. Run php artisan storage:link to create the storage symlink (if you’re using Vagrant with Homestead for development, remember to ssh into your virtual machine and run the command from there).


To start testing the theme, register as a user or log in using one of the default users:

Make sure to run the migrations and seeders for the above credentials to be available. Check the documentation for more details about features and usage of the Laravel volt.
