Version 1.3


  • Namespaced config (like laravel 4: Config::get('vendor/package::config.item'))
  • Namespaced publishing (like laravel 4: config/packages/VENDOR/PACKAGE/config.php)
  • Or use the standard Laravel 5 way: Compatible with laravel 5 default configs. Adding the package will not invalidate your current setup.
  • Persistent configuration. Save changes to a mirroring file or database.
  • Config::getLoader()->set('iam/awesome::my.config.key', 'A changed value') saves it to a mirroring file or db
  • Supports PHP, YAML and soon also XML configuration files.

Overview ^

Installation ^

"laradic/config": "1.3.*"
Service provider

Replace the default laravel Illuminate\Foundation\Bootstrap\LoadConfiguration bootstrapper with Laradic\Config\Bootstrap\LoadConfiguration bootstrapper inside app/Http/Kernel.php and app/Console/Kernel.php.

use Illuminate\Foundation\Http\Kernel as HttpKernel;
class Kernel extends HttpKernel {
    protected $bootstrappers = [

Basic usage ^

Inside any ServiceProvider:

class YourServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
    use ConfigProviderTrait;

    public function register()
        $this->addConfigComponent('vendorname/packagename', 'vendorname/packagename', realpath(__DIR__.'/../resources/config'));    
  • Namespaced configuration can be accessed with Config::get('vendorname/packagename::config.item').
  • Publishing the config file is done with the default laravel vendor:publish command.

Persistent config ^

You can set persistent config items, by default the values will be saved in a seperate, mirrored file that gets merged on boot. It is also possible to save to database.

Inside the config file you can change the save method by changing the [loader] value.

return array(
    'loader' => 'file',
    'loaders' => array(
        'file' => array(
            'save_path' => storage_path('laradic_config')
        'db' => array(
            'table' => 'config'
    //.... other options

Important: If you plan on using the db loader, you will have to run the included migration that will create the required config database table.

You can set persistent config values like this:

Config::getLoader()->set('config.item', 'value');
