Laravel facade that gets images from a folder sorted by filename and filtered.

This is just a simple wrapper for functionality that I use across many projects.

It enables you to easily grabs images from a folder and create a image gallery.


From project root type:

composer require mabasic/gallery-loader

or in composer.json add following to require:

"require": {
    "mabasic/gallery-loader": "~1.0"

Register Service provider in app.php:

'providers' => [

Register Facade in app.php:

'aliases' => [
    'GalleryLoader' => Mabasic\GalleryLoader\Facades\GalleryLoader::class


Get all images from a folder

GalleryLoader::getImages(public_path() . '/img/slideshow')

Get all images except images that contain these words

GalleryLoader::getImages(public_path() . '/img/slideshow', ['thumb', 'small', 'thumbnail'])


getImageNameWithPrefix($prefix, SplFileInfo $image)

image.png with prefix thumb_ transforms to thumb_image.png.

getImageNameWithSuffix(SplFileInfo $image, $suffix)

image.png with suffix _thumb transforms to image_thumb.png.

getImageWithSuffix(SplFileInfo $image, $suffix, $folder)

Returns URL for image with suffix.

getImageWithPrefix(SplFileInfo $image, $prefix, $folder)

Returns URL for image with prefix.

getImage(SplFileInfo $image, $folder)

Returns URL for image.

Real World Example

<ul class="slides">
    @foreach(GalleryLoader::getImages(public_path($folder = 'img/paddle/slider/'), ['large']) as $image)
        <a href="{{ GalleryLoader::getImageWithSuffix($image, '_large', $folder) }}">
            <img src="{{ GalleryLoader->getImage($image, $folder) }}" />
