Installation

You can install this package via composer using this command:

composer require coderello/laraflash 

After that you need to register the \Coderello\Laraflash\Middleware\HandleLaraflash::class middleware after the \Illuminate\Session\Middleware\StartSession::class one in the app\Http\Kernel.php

You can publish the config file with:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag="laraflash-config"

Adding flash messages

There are many syntax variations for adding flash messages, so you can choose the one you like the most.

Let's take a look at some of them.

use Coderello\Laraflash\Facades\Laraflash;

Laraflash::message()->content('Some content')->title('Some title')->type('success');

message() method creates and returns fresh FlashMessage instance which can be modified by chaining methods (all methods could be found in the FlashMessage methods section).

laraflash()->message()->content('Some content')->title('Some title')->type('success');

Laraflash facade can be replaced with the laraflsh() helper as you could saw in the example above.

laraflash()->message('Some content', 'Some title')->success();

message() method accepts up to five arguments: $content, $title, $type, $delay, $hops.

laraflash('Some content', 'Some title')->success();

Arguments mentioned in the previous example can be passed directly to the laraflash() helper.

Rendering flash messages

Ready flash messages could be rendered using the render() method of the Laraflash instance.

laraflash()->render();

All methods of the Laraflash instance (which could be obtained by calling laraflash() helper without arguments being passed) could be found in the Laraflash methods section.

Output HTML will be generated using skin, specified in the laraflash.skin config. All available skins are listed in the config file.

<div class="alert alert-danger" role="alert">
   Danger message.
</div><br><div class="alert alert-info" role="alert">
   Info message.
</div>

Default separator between the messages is the <br>, which is specified in the laraflash.separator config. Feel free to change it if you need.

Example of messages rendered as HTML:

Example

Obtaining flash messages as an array

Flash messages can be obtained as an array using the toArray() method.

laraflash()->toArray();

Here is the result:

[
  [
    "title" => null,
    "content" => "Instant message.",
    "type" => "danger",
    "hops" => 1,
    "delay" => 0,
  ],
]

You can use array representation of flash messages for your API.
