Laravel package adding a HTTP/2 server push manager to your Laravel applications.


To install this package, run the following Composer command:

composer require babdev/laravel-server-push-manager

If your application is not using package discovery, you will need to add the service provider to your config/app.php file:


Likewise, you will also need to register the facade in your config/app.php file if not using package discovery:

'PushManager' => BabDev\ServerPushManager\Facades\PushManager::class,

To send the header, you will need to register BabDev\ServerPushManager\Http\Middleware\ServerPush as a middleware in your kernel. It is recommended to add it to only groups which handle web traffic with pushed assets, such as the default "web" group:

// app/Http/Kernel.php

protected $middlewareGroups = [
    'web' => [


Within Blade Templates

You can specify which assets should have a server push directive directly within your Blade templates by calling the PushManager service. Because the PushManager returns the original URI, you can wrap calls to asset() or mix() with a call to the manager. Note, the below example requires the PushManager facade has been registered in your application.

<link href="{{ PushManager::preload(mix('css/app.css'), ['as' => 'stylesheet']) }}" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="{{ PushManager::preload(asset('js/app.js'), ['as' => 'script']) }}"></script>

Within PHP classes

You can access the PushManager service by injecting it as a dependency to your class or controller action, through the app() helper using the service ID ('babdev.push_manager') or the class name, or using the facade.

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use BabDev\ServerPushManager\PushManager;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class MyController extends Controller;
    private $pushManager;

    public function __construct(PushManager $pushManager)
        $this->pushManager = $pushManager;

    public function myConstructorAction()
        $this->pushManager->preload('', ['as' => 'stylesheet']);

    public function myInjectedAction(Request $request, PushManager $pushManager)
        $pushManager->preload('', ['as' => 'stylesheet']);

    public function myAppAction()
        /** @var PushManager $pushManager */
        $pushManager = app('babdev.push_manager');
        $pushManager->preload('', ['as' => 'stylesheet']);

    public function myFacadeAction()
        \PushManager::preload('', ['as' => 'stylesheet']);

Why Another Package?

There are already other packages such as jacobbennett/laravel-http2serverpush, tomschlick/laravel-http2-server-push, or spatie/laravel-mix-preload, so why a new package?

Unlike other existing packages which are focused on automatically including resources, this package aims to provide an API to allow developers to configure server push headers for any resource with a maximum amount of flexibility. The API for this package is inspired by the WebLinkExtension of Symfony's TwigBridge, which was also the basis for the Joomla! Framework Preload Package.
