Table Builder


The Table Builder package is pre-installed with the Panel Builder. This guide is for using the Table Builder in a custom TALL Stack application (Tailwind, Alpine, Livewire, Laravel).


Filament requires the following to run:

  • PHP 8.1+
  • Laravel v10.0+
  • Livewire v3.0+

Livewire v3 is recently released!
The Livewire team have done a great job in making it stable, but it was a complete rewrite of Livewire v2. You may encounter issues, so we recommend testing your application thoroughly before using Filament v3 in production.


Require the Table Builder package using Composer:

composer require filament/tables:"^3.2" -W

New Laravel projects

To quickly get started with Filament in a new Laravel project, run the following commands to install Livewire, Alpine.js, and Tailwind CSS:

Since these commands will overwrite existing files in your application, only run this in a new Laravel project!

php artisan filament:install --scaffold --tables
npm install
npm run dev

Existing Laravel projects

Run the following command to install the Table Builder assets:

php artisan filament:install --tables

Installing Tailwind CSS

Run the following command to install Tailwind CSS with the Tailwind Forms and Typography plugins:

npm install tailwindcss @tailwindcss/forms @tailwindcss/typography postcss postcss-nesting autoprefixer --save-dev

Create a new tailwind.config.js file and add the Filament preset (includes the Filament color scheme and the required Tailwind plugins):

import preset from './vendor/filament/support/tailwind.config.preset'
export default {
presets: [preset],
content: [

Configuring styles

Add Tailwind's CSS layers to your resources/css/app.css:

@tailwind base;
@tailwind components;
@tailwind utilities;

Create a postcss.config.js file in the root of your project and register Tailwind CSS, PostCSS Nesting and Autoprefixer as plugins:

export default {
plugins: {
'tailwindcss/nesting': 'postcss-nesting',
tailwindcss: {},
autoprefixer: {},

Automatically refreshing the browser

You may also want to update your vite.config.js file to refresh the page automatically when Livewire components are updated:

import { defineConfig } from 'vite'
import laravel, { refreshPaths } from 'laravel-vite-plugin'
export default defineConfig({
plugins: [
input: ['resources/css/app.css', 'resources/js/app.js'],
refresh: [

Compiling assets

Compile your new CSS and Javascript assets using npm run dev.

Configuring your layout

Create a new resources/views/components/layouts/app.blade.php layout file for Livewire components:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="{{ str_replace('_', '-', app()->getLocale()) }}">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta name="application-name" content="{{ config('') }}">
<meta name="csrf-token" content="{{ csrf_token() }}">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
<title>{{ config('') }}</title>
[x-cloak] {
display: none !important;
<body class="antialiased">
{{ $slot }}

Publishing configuration

You can publish the package configuration using the following command (optional):

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=filament-config


Upgrading from Filament v2? Please review the upgrade guide.

Filament automatically upgrades to the latest non-breaking version when you run composer update. After any updates, all Laravel caches need to be cleared, and frontend assets need to be republished. You can do this all at once using the filament:upgrade command, which should have been added to your composer.json file when you ran filament:install the first time:

"post-autoload-dump": [
// ...
"@php artisan filament:upgrade"

Please note that filament:upgrade does not actually handle the update process, as Composer does that already. If you're upgrading manually without a post-autoload-dump hook, you can run the command yourself:

composer update
php artisan filament:upgrade
