Share links exist on almost every page in every project, creating the code for these share links over and over again can be a pain in the ass. With Laravel Share you can generate these links in just seconds in a way tailored for Laravel.

Available services

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Linkedin
  • WhatsApp
  • Reddit
  • Telegram


You can install the package via composer:

composer require jorenvanhocht/laravel-share

If you don't use auto-discovery, add the ServiceProvider to the providers array in config/app.php

// config/app.php
'providers' => [

And optionally add the facade in config/app.php

// config/app.php
'aliases' => [
    'Share' => Jorenvh\Share\ShareFacade::class,

Publish the package config & resource files.

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Jorenvh\Share\Providers\ShareServiceProvider"

You might need to republish the config file when updating to a newer version of Laravel Share

This will publish the laravel-share.php config file to your config folder, share.js in public/js/ and laravel-share.php in your resources/lang/vendor/en/ folder.


Since this package relies on Fontawesome, you will have to require it's css, js & fonts in your app. You can do that by requesting a embed code via their website or by installing it locally in your project.

Laravel share supports Font Awesome v5. For Font Awsome 4 support use version 3 of this package.


Load jquery.min.js & share.js by adding the following lines to your template files.

<script src="" integrity="sha256-4+XzXVhsDmqanXGHaHvgh1gMQKX40OUvDEBTu8JcmNs=" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
<script src="{{ asset('js/share.js') }}"></script>


Creating one share link




Share::page('', 'Your share text can be placed here')->twitter();


Share::page('', 'Your share text can be placed here')->reddit();


Share::page('', 'Share title')->linkedin('Extra linkedin summary can be passed here')




Share::page('', 'Your share text can be placed here')->telegram();

Sharing the current url

Instead of manually passing an url, you can opt to use the currentPage function.


Creating multiple share Links

If want multiple share links for (multiple) providers you can just chain the methods like this.

Share::page('', 'Share title')
	->linkedin('Extra linkedin summary can be passed here')

This will generate the following html

<div id="social-links">
		<li><a href="" class="social-button " id=""><span class="fa fa-facebook-official"></span></a></li>
		<li><a href=" share text&amp;url=" class="social-button " id=""><span class="fa fa-twitter"></span></a></li>
		<li><a href=";url=;title=my share text&amp;summary=dit is de linkedin summary" class="social-button " id=""><span class="fa fa-linkedin"></span></a></li>
		<li><a href="" class="social-button " id=""><span class="fa fa-whatsapp"></span></a></li>    

Getting the raw links

In some cases you may only need the raw links without any html, you can get these by calling the getRawLinks method.

A single link

Share::page('', 'Share title')


Multiple links

Share::page('', 'Share title')
	->linkedin('Extra linkedin summary can be passed here')


  "facebook" => "",
  "twitter" => "",
  "linkedin" => "",
  "whatsapp" => "",

Optional parameters

Add extra classes, id's or titles to the social buttons

You can simply add extra class(es), id('s), title(s) or relationship(s) by passing an array as the third parameter on the page method.

Share::page('', null, ['class' => 'my-class', 'id' => 'my-id', 'title' => 'my-title', 'rel' => 'nofollow noopener noreferrer'])

Which will result in the following html

<div id="social-links">
		<li><a href="" class="social-button my-class" id="my-id" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer"><span class="fa fa-facebook-official"></span></a></li>

Custom wrapping

By default social links will be wrapped in the following html

<div id="social-links">
		<!-- social links will be added here -->

This can be customised by passing the prefix & suffix as a parameter.

Share::page('', null, [], '<ul>', '</ul>')

This will output the following html.

	<li><a href="" class="social-button " id=""><span class="fa fa-facebook-official"></span></a></li>
