README

A package that makes it easy to add meta tags to your views. This is a fork of Ryan Nielson's original package that does not include any framework-specific code.

This package will work in any PHP application.

Installation

Run the following Composer command in your terminal, or simply add "mattyg/meta": "2.1.*" to your composer.json file:

composer require mattyg/meta

Then update Composer from the terminal:

composer update

That's it!

Usage

To set meta tag values, you will use the set(array()) method on the Meta instance. Just pass this Meta object around to persist the set values.

$meta = new \RyanNielson\Meta\Meta;

// Example #1 - Basic setting of values
$meta->set(array("title" => "Page Title", "description" => "Page Description", "keywords" => array("great", "site")));

// Example #2 - Setting nested values. This will render tags with names like og:title and og:description
$meta->set(array("title" => "Page Title", "og" => array("title" => "OG Title", "description" => "OG Description")));

To display your meta tags using the set values, you will use the display(array()) function on your Meta object.:

$meta->display();

// Displaying Example #1 from above
<meta name="title" content="Page Title"/>
<meta name="description" content="Page Description"/>
<meta name="keywords" content="great, site"/>

// Displaying Example #2 from above
<meta name="title" content="Page Title"/>
<meta name="og:title" content="OG Title"/>
<meta name="og:description" content="OG Description"/>

The display function also accepts an array of default values. These will be used when displaying your meta tags if a value is not set already using set().
