This is a tiny package to add a php artisan make:view command to quickly create blade views.


Require the package with composer using the following command:

composer require maddhatter/laravel-view-generator --dev

Or add the following to your composer.json's require section and composer update

"require-dev": {
	"maddhatter/laravel-view-generator": "dev-master"

Or if you always want it included regardless of environment, just add it to the providers array in config/app.php


Create a New View

php artisan make:view

Use the same dotted notation to your view that you would pass to the view() command. The directory will be created if it doesn't already exist.

Note: If there are multiple paths defined in your config/view.php's paths array, this package will use the first path.

Extend Another View

php artisan make:view -e

You can optionally extend another view by adding the -e parameter and providing the name of the view you want to extend. It will parse the parent view for @yield() directives and create the corresponding @section / @endsection tags.


Imagine you have the following layout defined:


<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">

  <div id="content">

  <script src="{{ elixir('js/app.js') }}"></script>

And you run:

php artisan make:view pages.home -e layouts.master

The following will be created:
