Service Provider

If you want to use routing, controllers, views, binding directly in your project, in your app/config/app.php, add "Caouecs\Sirtrevorjs\SirtrevorjsServiceProvider" to your list of providers.


To get tweets, this project uses thujohn/twitter. Please visit the page of the project to know how to install and configure.

Configuration file

Next, you must migrate config :

php artisan vendor:publish caouecs/sirtrevorjs

After installation, the config file is located at app/config/packages/caouecs/sirtrevorjs/sir-trevor-js.php.

You can define :

  • the path for image upload
  • the route for upload image
  • the route for tweet
  • the path of Sir Trevor files
  • the list of block types
  • custom blocks
  • the language
  • the paths for Eventable.js and Underscore.js
  • the view
  • configuration for blocks
    • soundcloud
    • gettyimages
  • etc...

SirTrevorJs class


For stylesheets :


For scripts, in your Blade files :


Fix for image block

Function to fix a problem with image block when you add a new image :

    $text = SirTrevorJs::transformText($text);

Find first image

Get first image in text with findImage method :

    string SirTrevorJS::findImage(string $text);

In return, you have url of image or empty string.

Find elements by blocktypes

Get all elements in text, in specified blocktype with find method :

    mixed SirTrevorJS::find(string $text, string $blocktype [, string $output = "json"])

In return, you can have :

  • array, if you choose "array" for $output
  • json, if you choose "json" for $output
  • false, if the script doesn't find an occurence of blocktype



This trait proposes two things :

  • upload image where you want
  • get tweets

This project proposes a system for upload image, nothing to configure, just the directory_upload value in config file.

    "directory_upload" => "img/uploads"
