Getting started

Environment requirements

Of course, any other Laravel compatible server configuration and deployment strategy will be supported.

Frontend assets

Twill uses Vue CLI to build the frontend assets of its UI. To ensure reproducible builds, npm scripts provided by Twill use the npm ci command, which is available since npm 5.7.


Twill's database migrations create json columns. Your database should support the json type. Twill has been developed and tested against MySQL (>=5.7) and PostgreSQL(>=9.3) databases.
