Content Delivery Network Package for Laravel

The package provides the developer the ability to upload his assets (or any public file) to a CDN with a single artisan command. And then it allows him to switch between the local and the online version of the files.

Laravel Support

  • For Laravel 5.1 use the latest realease (master).
  • For Laravel 4.2 use the realease v1.0.1 Last suport for L 4.2


  • Amazon Web Services - S3
  • Artisan command to upload content to CDN
  • Simple Facade to access CDN assets


Via Composer

Require vinelab/cdn in your project:

composer require vinelab/cdn:*

Since this is a Laravel package we need to register the service provider:

Add the service provider to config/app.php:

'providers' => array(


Set the Credentials in the .env file.

Note: you must have an .env file at the project root, to hold your sensitive information.


Publish the package config file:

php artisan vendor:publish vinelab/cdn

You can find it at config/cdn.php

Default Provider
'default' => 'AwsS3',
CDN Provider Configuration
'aws' => [

    's3' => [
        'version'   => 'latest',
        'region'    => '',

        'buckets' => [
            'my-backup-bucket' => '*',
Multiple Buckets
'buckets' => [

    'my-default-bucket' => '*',
    // 'js-bucket' => ['public/js'],
    // 'css-bucket' => ['public/css'],
    // ...

Files & Directories


Specify directories, extensions, files and patterns to be uploaded.

'include'    => [
    'directories'   => ['public/dist'],
    'extensions'    => ['.js', '.css', '.yxz'],
    'patterns'      => ['**/*.coffee'],

Specify what to be ignored.

'exclude'    => [
    'directories'   => ['public/uploads'],
    'files'         => [''],
    'extensions'    => ['.TODO', '.txt'],
    'patterns'      => ['src/*', '.idea/*'],
    'hidden'        => true, // ignore hidden files

Set the CDN URL:

'url' => '',

Set the HTTP parameters:

'http' => '['verify' => path-to-your-pem-certificate-file]',

To load your LOCAL assets for testing or during development, set the bypass option to true:

'bypass' => true,
Cloudfront Support
'cloudfront'    => [
    'use' => false,
    'cdn_url' => ''

'acl'           => 'public-read',
'metadata'      => [ ],
'expires'       => gmdate("D, d M Y H:i:s T", strtotime("+5 years")),
'cache-control' => 'max-age=2628000',

You can always refer to the AWS S3 Documentation for more details: aws-sdk-php



Upload assets to CDN

php artisan cdn:push


Delete assets from CDN

php artisan cdn:empty

Load Assets

Use the facade Cdn to call the Cdn::asset() function.

Note: the asset works the same as the Laravel asset it start looking for assets in the public/ directory:

{{Cdn::asset('assets/js/main.js')}}        // example result:

{{Cdn::asset('assets/css/style.css')}}        // example result:

Note: the elixir works the same as the Laravel elixir it loads the manifest.json file from build folder and choose the correct file revision generated by gulp:

{{Cdn::elixir('assets/js/main.js')}}        // example result:

{{Cdn::elixir('assets/css/style.css')}}        // example result:

To use a file from outside the public/ directory, anywhere in app/ use the Cdn::path() function:

{{Cdn::path('private/something/file.txt')}}        // example result:


To run the tests, run the following command from the project folder.

$ ./vendor/bin/phpunit
