Infinity Next was never completed and is currently in an unusable state. I am currently working on refactoring it to Laravel 6 and modernizing some backend work, but it is just something I am doing for myself. For some reason, I just can’t stand to see it unfinished.

Use at your own risk: I can’t help you.

Infinity Next is an imageboard using the Laravel Framework. It was conceived as a way to replace existing free imageboard software that have aged poorly. Infinity Next is completely free to use, but modifications to the source code must be made open source as well.

Submitting Issues

If you are submitting an issue to developers, please supply the following:

  • A concise description of your problem.
  • An exact case of the error. If the problem is code related, reference the file and line number.
  • Additional details of articles if applicable.

Please don’t assume we’ll understand exactly what you’re talking about. If I can read an error, copy+paste something, or upload a file and reproduce an error in 30 seconds after opening your message, I can fix it without having to ask you for more information. If you do not provide an error case or details on how to recreate what you’re experiencing, the first response to your issue will be “please provide an example”.


Larachan runs on Laravel 5 and has the same requirements.

  • PHP 7.2 or greater.
    • php-bcmath for dealing with IP addresses.
    • php-mcrypt for bcrypt functions.
    • php-gd for captcha codes and other image manipulation.

You may also need the following because not all PHP packages include them:

  • mbstring for Lavarel.
  • fileinfo for Composer requirement.

When installing from source,

  • composer

You can also pass --prefer-source to composer to forego the Github OAuth requirement.


Infinity Next is currently below its first release version. When it is finished, a compiled archive will be available with an installation process. Right now, however, you must build it yourself and have access to a command line interface.

  1. Pull the code and navigate to the directory where the .env file is.
  2. Edit the .env to your liking. This is where you enter database details.
  3. Issue the command composer update and wait as 3rd party libraries are added.
  4. Issue the command php artisan migrate or ./artisan migrate
  5. Issue the command php artisan db:seed or ./artisan db:seed
    • Take note of the Admin account password that will be created for you.
  6. Add the Laravel crontab service provided in crontab.txt
  7. Restart your PHP daemon, using a command such as service apache2 restart or service php5-fpm restart.

You should now have a /test/ board. The admin account will be named Admin.

Coding Standards

In the name of preventing conflict and keeping the codebase clean, I am implementing the exact same standards of Laravel contributors.

Laravel follows the PSR-0 and PSR-1 coding standards. In addition to these standards, the following coding standards should be followed:

  • The class namespace declaration must be on the same line as <?php.
  • A class’s opening { must be on the same line as the class name.
  • Functions and control structures must use Allman style braces. Indent with tabs, align with spaces.

“Allman style braces” refer to having a curly-brace on a new line at the same level of indentation as the conditional itself.
