Slug field for Laravel Nova that can generate unique slug for your model while typing.

nova-sluggable demo


You can install the package in to a Laravel app that uses Nova via composer:

composer require drobee/nova-sluggable


Add a new SluggableText and a Slug field to your Nova Resource:

use Drobee\NovaSluggable\SluggableText;
use Drobee\NovaSluggable\Slug;

class User extends Resource
    // ...

    public function fields(Request $request)
        return [
            // ...


            // ...

When the user types a string in the SluggableText field the value is being sent the API to generate the slug and and then it sets the Slug field's value to the that. The slug is updated on every key up event, but it can be tied to blur event on the title field.

By default it looks for a Slug type field with the name Slug.

In order to work properly every defined SluggableText field need a corresponding Slug field.


Slug field with custom name

Set the Slug fields name on the SluggableText field with the slug() method:

SluggableText::make('Title')->slug('SEO Title');
Slug::make('SEO Title', 'slug');


Set the language to use for the generation with the Slug field's slugLanguage() method:


Default value: en

Maximum length

Limit the maximum length of the generated slug with the Slug field's slugMaxLength() method:


Default value: 255

Maximum length

Set the string all the whitespaces will be replaced with with the Slug field's slugSeparator() method:


Default value: -

Note: the generated slug may be few characters longer than the value specified, due to the suffix which is added to make it unique.

Update event

By default the slug updates on every keyup event, but you can tie it to the blur event:


Accepted values: keyup, blur

Default value: keyup

Unique slug and Eloquent model

The generated slugs won't be unique unless you call the slugUnique() method on your Slug field.

You also need to specify what Eloquent model should the generator use to make the slug unique by calling the slugModel() method. In most cases you would want to use the same Eloquent model as your resource. To do so call the method with the resource's static $model attribute.


When these to options are set the generated slug will be unique on the set model regarding the attribute value of the Slug field.

Usage with Spatie\Sluggable

If the Eloquent model you specified with slugModel() uses Spatie\Sluggable's HasSlug trait and implements its getSlugOptions() method, then you don't have to set the separator, maximum length or language for the field. In such cases the generator uses the values you already set on your model.
