Small package to generate meta tags easily in your Laravel app

Installation

First, pull in the package through Composer.

Laravel 4.2

"require": {
    "foxted/meta": "~1.0"
}

Laravel 5.0

"require": {
    "foxted/meta":"1.1.*"
}

Then include the service provider within app/config/app.php.

'providers' => [
    'Foxted\Meta\MetaServiceProvider'
];

Add a facade alias to this same file at the bottom:

'aliases' => [
    'Meta' => 'Foxted\Meta\Facades\MetaFacade'
];

And finally publish the view & config files:

php artisan view:publish foxted/meta
php artisan config:publish foxted/meta

Defaults

Defaults values are set in the config file, to override them, after you ran the php artisan config:publish foxted/meta command, navigate to app/config/packages/foxted/config.php and change the values as you want.

You can also delete them entirely if you do not want any defaults values, just be sure to keep the app/config/packages/foxted/config.php file and return an empty array, like so:

<?php

return [];

Usage

Within your controllers, before rendering your view, generate your tags:

public function index()
{
    Meta::title("My amazing website"); // <title>My amazing website</title>
    Meta::name("keywords", "awesome, keywords"); // <meta name="keywords" content="awesome, keywords">
    Meta::name("description", "The best website you've ever seen"); // <meta name="description" content="The best website you've ever seen">
    Meta::equiv("content-type", "text/html; charset=UTF-8"); // <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
    return View::make("index");
}

To show your meta block in your view, just use the following Blade directive:

@meta
