Build Status Coverage Status

This Laravel 4/5/6/7 package provides an easy way to create and check against WordPress password hashes. WordPress is not required.


Step 1: Composer

Begin by installing this package through Composer. Edit your project's composer.json file to require mikemclin/laravel-wp-password.

"require": {
  "mikemclin/laravel-wp-password": "~2.0.1"

Next, update Composer from the Terminal:

composer update

Step 2: Register Laravel Service Provider

Once this operation completes, the final step is to add the service provider.

  • Laravel 5.x: Open config/app.php, and add a new item to the providers array
  • Laravel 4.x: Open app/config/app.php, and add a new item to the providers array


Add a use statement for the WpPassword facade

use MikeMcLin\WpPassword\Facades\WpPassword;

make() - Create Password Hash

Similar to the WordPress wp_hash_password() function

$hashed_password = WpPassword::make('plain-text-password');

check() - Check Password Hash

Similar to the WordPress wp_check_password() function

$password = 'plain-text-password';
$wp_hashed_password = '$P$B7TRc6vrwCfjgKLZLgmN.dmPo6msZR.';

if ( WpPassword::check($password, $wp_hashed_password) ) {
    // Password success!
} else {
    // Password failed :(

Dependency Injection

I used a facade above to simplify the documentation. If you'd prefer not to use the facade, you can inject the following interface: MikeMcLin\WpPassword\Contracts\WpPassword.
