Post Install

Publish Packages Configurations

After the installation is completed, publish the vendor publish by running:

php artisan vendor:publish

Extend Exception Handler

You can use the Exception handler specially for developing. This includes the Whoops. You can extend your app/Exceptions/Handler.php with Mmstreet\Common\Exceptions\Handler. Also add your uris using the $corsUris property to be used in CORS. See example below.

namespace App\Exceptions;

use Mmstreet\Common\Exceptions\Handler as ExceptionHandler;

class Handler extends ExceptionHandler
    protected $corsUris = [
        'api/*', // default

Response Trait

You can use the Mmstreet\Common\Traits\ResponseTrait to your App\Http\Controllers\Controller for easy returning response either Json or in View. See example below.

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Foundation\Bus\DispatchesJobs;
use Illuminate\Routing\Controller as BaseController;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Validation\ValidatesRequests;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\Access\AuthorizesRequests;
use Mmstreet\Common\Traits\ResponseTrait;

abstract class Controller extends BaseController
    use AuthorizesRequests, DispatchesJobs, ValidatesRequests, ResponseTrait;

Example usage:

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use App\Post;

class PostController extends Controller
    public function index()
        $posts = Post::all();

        if ($posts->isEmpty()) {
            // {The message}, {The data}, {status code}, {view name}, {response headers}, {Json callback}
            return $this->errorResponse('No Posts as of the moment', $posts, 404, 404, [], 'callback');

        return $this->successResponse('Successfully get all posts', $posts);

    public function all()
        $posts = Post::all();

        if ($post->isEmpty()) {
            // You can also use Closure.
            return $this->errorResponse(function() {
                return response('No POSTS');

        return $this->successResponse('Successfully get all posts', $posts);
