Laravel Setting

Persistent configuration settings for Laravel - Create, Read, Update and Delete settings stored in files using JSON.

This package was the result of me not being able to save new settings to config files in a more persistent way.

This package was designed not to replace the config solution currently offered by Laravel but rather complement it and be used in unison with it.

By default the data is stored in app_path().'/storage/meta/setting.json' but this can be easily changed either in the config file or on the fly in realtime.

This package also provides a fallback for the Laravel Config facade, you can set it in the config, if the key is not found in the json file it will look it up in the Config facade.

Require this package in your composer.json:

"philf/setting": "dev-master"

And add the ServiceProvider to the providers array in app/config/app.php




return array(
'path'     => app_path().'/storage/meta',
'filename' => 'setting.json',
'fallback' => true,
'autoAlias' => true,

##Fallback capability built in. // Automatic fallback to Laravel config Setting::get('app.locale');

##Single dimension

set:        Setting::set('name', 'Phil')
get:        Setting::get('name')
forget:     Setting::forget('name')
has:        Setting::has('name')

#Multi dimensional

set:        Setting::set('names.firstName', 'Phil')
set:        Setting::set('names.surname', 'F')
set:        Setting::set('names', array('firstName' => 'Phil', 'surname' => 'F'))
setArray:   Setting::setArray(array('firstName' => 'Phil', 'surname' => 'F'))
get:        Setting::get('names.firstName')
forget:     Setting::forget('names.surname'))
has:        Setting::has('names.firstName')

#Array processing // Get all of the entries in the names array $names = Setting::get('names');
foreach ($names as $key => $val) { ... }

    // Get the whole array
    $everything = Setting::get();

You can also clear the JSON file with the clear command

clear:      Setting::clear()

Using a different path (make sure the path exists and is writable) *

Setting::path(app_path().'/storage/meta/sub')->set('names2', array('firstName' => 'Phil', 'surname' => 'F'));

Using a different filename

Setting::filename('setting2.json')->set('names2', array('firstName' => 'Phil', 'surname' => 'F'));

Using both a different path and filename (make sure the path exists and is writable)

Setting::path(app_path().'/storage/meta/sub')->filename('dummy.json')->set('names2', array('firstName' => 'Phil', 'surname' => 'F'));
