A Laravel wrapper for CrawlerDetect - the web crawler detection library


Run composer require jaybizzle/laravel-crawler-detect 1.* or add "jaybizzle/laravel-crawler-detect": "1.*" to your composer.json file.

The last version compatible with Laravel 4 was v1.0.2 so if you need that, you will have to fix your composer.json to that specific version.

Add the following to the providers array in your config/app.php file..


...and the following to your aliases array...

  'Crawler'   => Jaybizzle\LaravelCrawlerDetect\Facades\LaravelCrawlerDetect::class,

Laravel 5.5 uses Package Auto-Discovery, so doesn't require you to manually add the ServiceProvider.


use Crawler;

// Check current 'visitors' user agent
if(Crawler::isCrawler()) {
  // true if crawler user agent detected

// Pass a user agent as a string
if(Crawler::isCrawler('Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; aiHitBot/2.9; +https://www.aihitdata.com/about)')) {
  // true if crawler user agent detected
