Package for convenient work with Laravel's localization features and fast language files generation. Take a look at to see a to do list.


Via Composer

$ composer require awes-io/localization-helper

In Laravel 5.5+, service provider and facade will be automatically registered. For older versions, follow the steps below:

Register service provider in config/app.php:

'providers' => [
// [...]

You may also register LaravelLocalization facade:

'aliases' => [
// [...]
        'LocalizationHelper' => AwesIO\LocalizationHelper\Facades\LocalizationHelper::class,


Config Files

In order to edit default configuration you may execute:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="AwesIO\LocalizationHelper\LocalizationHelperServiceProvider"

After that, config/localizationhelper.php will be created.


Package registers global helper function _p($file_key, $default, $placeholders):

_p('auth.login', 'Login'); // "Login"

It will create new localization file auth.php (if it doesn't exist) and write second parameter as language string under login key:

return [
    "login" => "Login"

On second call with same file/key _p('auth.login'), localization string will be returned, file will remain untouched.

Placeholders are also supported:

    'You’re invited to join :company company workspace', 
    ['company' => 'Awesio']

If key is returned, it means that string already exists in localization file and you are trying to add new one using its value as an array.

// in localization file.php
return [
    "test" => "Test string"

_p('', 'Test string'); // will return ""

_p('', 'Test string'); // will return "Test string"

// and modify localization file:
return [
    "test" => "Test string",
    "test_2" => [
        "new" => "Test string"
