This Laravel Nova package allows you to create custom settings in code (using Nova's native fields) and creates a UI for the users where the settings can be edited.


  • Laravel Nova >= 2.0.8


  • Settings fields management in code
  • UI for editing settings
  • Helpers for accessing settings


Settings View


Install the package in a Laravel Nova project via Composer:

composer require optimistdigital/nova-settings

Publish the database migration(s) and run migrate:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="OptimistDigital\NovaSettings\ToolServiceProvider" --tag="migrations"
php artisan migrate

Register the tool with Nova in the tools() method of the NovaServiceProvider:

// in app/Providers/NovaServiceProvider.php

public function tools()
    return [
        // ...
        new \OptimistDigital\NovaSettings\NovaSettings


Registering fields

Define the fields in your NovaServiceProvider's boot() function by calling NovaSettings::setSettingsFields().

    Text::make('Some setting', 'some_setting'),
    Number::make('A number', 'a_number'),

Custom formatting

If you want the value of the setting to be formatted before it's returned, pass a Closure as the second parameter to the setSettingsFields function. The function receives two arguments: key and value.

    // ... fields
], function ($key, $value) {
    if ($key === 'some_boolean_value') return boolval($value);
    return $value;

Helper functions


Call nova_get_settings() to get all the settings formated as a regular array.


To get a single setting's value, call nova_get_setting_value('some_setting_key'). It will return either a value or null if the key is missing.
