Configuration file

You can use customize TypeRocket by editing the configuration files in the config folder.

Disable and Enable Plugins

To enable and disable the plugins edit the plugins setting.

'plugins' => [

Debug mode

In the app.php file set debug to true. Debug mode adds hints to fields and other areas to aid in development.

'debug' => true


You can override the Icons that come out of the box by setting icons to the full class name of the Icons class you want to use.

'icons' => \TypeRocket\Elements\Icons::class

TypeRocket Assets

In the paths.php file you can set your assets URL. The URLs paths should be the only paths you edit.

'urls' => [
  'assets' => get_template_directory_uri() . '/typerocket/wordpress/assets',
  'components' => get_template_directory_uri() . '/typerocket/wordpress/assets/components',

Setting to Root

For example, when TypeRocket is the root of your project instead of WordPress you can set the URLs to another location.

'urls' => [
  'assets' => home_url() . '/assets',
  'components' => home_url() . '/assets/components',

Note: If you change this setting you will also want to make sure your gulpfile.js is updated to the new location as well.

After restarting the MySQL server check your new mode settings by running the SQL query.


If you are using Laravel Forge there is a good article on the topic of the MySQL mode setting.
