Updating Spike

You will need a valid license key to install and update Spike.

You can get a Single or Unlimited license from here.

Spike is an ever-evolving project and your license allows 1 year of updates for free. After the 1 year of updates passes, you will be able to update to the latest version available before the one year expired. In order to continue receiving updates after 1 year, you will need to purchase another year of updates (at a discount) by logging in to your account here.

Updating the package to the latest version

First, run the Composer command:

composer update opcodes/spike

Livewire 3 support is available from v2 version, which you can install like this:

composer require opcodes/spike:^2.0

Next, run the spike:update Artisan command which will update any assets you have previously published, such as Assets or Translations.

php artisan spike:update

Configuration files and Views will not be updated automatically, so please review the latest default config file in vendor/opcodes/spike/config/spike.php and copy over any values that are new and relevant to you. This is not necessary, as any updates will have sensible and backwards-compatible defaults to the configuration. You can also find all the config values documented on this website.


If you have any questions, feedback, or need any help setting up Spike within your project, feel free to reach out to me.
