Browscap-PHP for Laravel 5/Lumen 5


Run composer require propa/laravel-browscap

If you're using Laravel 5.5 or 6 and didn't disabled package auto discovery referencing


Reference service provider and corresponding alias in your app.php config

'providers' => [
    // ...
'aliases' => [
    // ...
    'Browscap' => Propa\BrowscapPHP\Facades\Browscap::class,

Publish package config if necessary

php artisan vendor:publish


For Lumen, register a different Provider in bootstrap/app.php:


and also a facade

 class_alias(\Propa\BrowscapPHP\Facades\Browscap::class, Browscap::class);


Console commands defined by BrowscapPHP can be accessed via artisan, for the full list see

php artisan list browscap

Firstly, it is necessary to import browscap.ini and cache it, for that run

php artisan browscap:update

When necessary cache files are created by the above command, one can call Browscap::getBrowser() and analyze detected browser type and features. The extent of feature detection depends on browscap.ini file imported (there are lite, default and full versions available).
