composer require novius/laravel-nova-contexts

Add LaravelNovaContexts tool to NovaServiceProvider:

namespace App\Providers;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Gate;
use Laravel\Nova\Cards\Help;
use Laravel\Nova\Nova;
use Laravel\Nova\NovaApplicationServiceProvider;
use Novius\LaravelNovaContexts\LaravelNovaContexts;

class NovaServiceProvider extends NovaApplicationServiceProvider
    // ...
    public function tools()
        return [
            new LaravelNovaContexts(),

Override Nova Layout view to add context selector like bellow :

{{-- resources/views/vendor/nova/layout.blade.php --}}

@if (count(\Laravel\Nova\Nova::globallySearchableResources(request())) > 0)
    <global-search dusk="global-search-component"></global-search>


<dropdown class="ml-auto h-9 flex items-center dropdown-right">


Some options that you can override are available.

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Novius\LaravelNovaContexts\LaravelNovaContextsServiceProvider" --tag="config"

Models configuration

To make a model "contextable", just use HasContext trait.


namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
use Novius\LaravelNovaContexts\Traits\HasContext;

class Page extends Model
    use HasContext;

     * @return string
    public function contextFieldName(): string
        return 'locale';

Nova resource field configuration

You can add context field to your Nova resource's fields:

public function fields(Request $request)
    return [
        // ...
        // ...

Nova resource filter configuration

You can add context filter to your Nova resource's filters :

 * Get the filters available for the resource.
 * @param \Illuminate\Http\Request $request
 * @return array
public function filters(Request $request)
    return [
        new ContextFilter($this->model()),


Run php-cs with:

composer run-script lint
