This is a package to manage json strings for the new Laravel 5.4 Localization Translation Strings As Keys. Using Translation Strings As Keys

Composer require

$ composer require amamarul/laravel-json-locations-manager

Add Provider into config/app.php


For Only local environment

Add the following to the AppServiceProvider in the register function:


 if ($this->app->environment() == 'local' || $this->app->environment() == 'testing') {
      * Load third party local providers

Package install

Run in console this command

$ php artisan amamarul:location:install

This command install database and will ask if you want to import the existing locations in the application. There are 2 questions, the first to import the strings in arrays and the second to import the existing strings into json files. This will pupulate the database with all strings. You don't need to run artisan migrate, this package uses an independent database (sqlite).

$ php artisan amamarul:location:publish

Of course you also can do that in browser views.

To Improve

There are a problem with the route('') in the strings. In Json generation they are converted to url format('http://...'). If you don´t use helpers that is no a problem, but I would like to solve that. If someone discover the way to fix that I would appreciate it very much.
