Laravel Helpers

From WikiOD

Laravel helpers are the globally accessible functions defined by the framework. It can be directly called and independently used anywhere within the application without needing to instantiating an object or importing class.

There are helpers for manipulating Arrays, Paths, Strings, URLs, etc

Array methods[edit | edit source]


This method is used to add new key value pairs to an array.

$array = ['username' => 'testuser'];

$array = array_add($array, 'age', 18);


['username' => 'testuser', 'age' => 18]

String methods[edit | edit source]


This method changes a string to camel case




Path mehods[edit | edit source]

Path methods helps easy access to application related paths easily from anywhere.


This method returns the fully qualified public path of the application. which is the public directory.

$path = public_path();

Urls[edit | edit source]


The url function generates a fully qualified URL to the given path.

if your site is

echo url('my/dashboard');

would return

if nothing is passed to the url method it would return an instance of Illuminate\Routing\UrlGenerator, and it could be used like this

would return current url

echo url()->current();

would return full url

echo url()->full();

would return previous url

echo url()->previous();
