Laravel (PostgreSQL) Backups

Simple Laravel Backups

This Laravel package will backup your entire Laravel application, into a compressed database dump and optionally he file backup of the storage folder. Once complete we will notify via one of our notification channels. Using SnapShooter's Simple Backups Engine we can extract your PostgreSQL directly from Laravel tinker at run time, so no need to give SnapShooter your PostgreSQL password, we can pipe config directly into pgdump, no longer suffer from backups failing due to password rotation.
