Environment configuration

All of the configuration variables for the FoodTiger project are stored in the .env file in root of your site.

You can edit them directly in the file, or use the integrated .env editor. You need to login as admin, and you will be able to use the visual .env editor.

List of all custom environment variables FoodTiger uses. We will see them one by one.

Remove the comments // when you add some environment variable

1. Database

2. Mail server

4. Localization and Time format

5. Payments

6. Google Maps and Places API

7. Google Analytics

From version 1.2 we enable tracks and reports website traffic using Google Analytics. This is optionally and if you want to enable on your site you need to create Google Analytics code.

8. Google authentication

9. Facebook authentication

10. One Signal Push notifications

11. Subdomain

When you run your site in subdomain, you need to declare that subdomain in your .env file. This is needed to be clarified, since this project can be used with subdomains for each restaurant.


12. Import from CSV

FoodTiger also support integration and working with excel files.

13. Additional variables

There are also few variables that for now only we will mentioned and later we will explain more about them.

  • Automatically approving the orders No need admin to approve the orders if true. By default is set to false.

APP_ORDER_APPROVE_DIRECTLY=false //No need admin to approve the oorders if true

  • Restaurants will deliver orders on their self's

APP_ALLOW_SELF_DELIVER=true //Restaurants will deliver orders on their selfs

  • Option for adding/deleting demo data in your project

    If you want to skip the adding the demo data that you will find on the demo version you can make that with adding variable in the configuration.

DEMO_DATA=false //By default it's true, if false the data won't be added

Additionally if you add the demo data in the process of installation later you can delete manually but maybe you will have some conflicts during this process. You can find about it on the following link.

In the end you should have a list of variables like the list below.
