Casset is an asset manager for Laravel 4 applications. Some things it can do:

  • Create one or more asset containers.
  • Compile less files.
  • Combine assets into one file.
  • Minify output.
  • Accept assets from Laravel package public directories. "vendor/package::/js/file.js"
  • Define dependencies for an asset.
  • Define global dependencies for all assets of the same file type.
  • Define an optional CDN for asset URLs.
  • Optionally defer processing/combining assets to a controller (useful when distributing page requests across multiple servers).

Installation via Composer

Add this to your composer.json file, in the require object:

"mmanos/laravel-casset": "dev-master"

After that, run composer install to install Casset.

Add the service provider to app/config/app.php, within the providers array.

'providers' => array(
	// ...

Add a class alias to app/config/app.php, within the aliases array.

'aliases' => array(
	// ...
	'Casset' => 'Mmanos\Casset\Facades\Casset',

Finally, ensure the cache directory defined in the config file is created and writable by the web server (defaults to public/assets/cache).

$ mkdir public/assets/cache
$ chmod -R 777 public/assets/cache
$ touch public/assets/cache/.gitignore

Edit public/assets/cache/.gitignore.


Upgrading to 1.3 from 1.2.x

Simply update the class alias in app/config/app.php to point to the new Facade:

'aliases' => array(
	// ...
	'Casset' => 'Mmanos\Casset\Facades\Casset',


Add assets to the "default" container:


Add assets to a custom container:


Add an asset with a dependency on another asset:

Casset::add('less/layout.less', array(), array('less/variables.less'));

Add a global dependency for all assets (of the same file type):


Add assets from a composer package (vendorName/packageName):


Render HTML tags to load assets for a container:

{{ Casset::container('default')->styles() }}
{{ Casset::container('layout')->scripts() }}

Generate a URL to an asset on the CDN server:

<img src="{{ Casset::cdn('logo.png') }}" />
