Use qcod/laravel-settings to store key value pair settings in the database.

All the settings saved in db is cached to improve performance by reducing sql query to zero.


1 - You can install the package via composer:

$ composer require qcod/laravel-settings

2 - If you are installing on Laravel 5.4 or lower you will be needed to manually register Service Provider by adding it in config/app.php providers array and Facade in aliases arrays.

'providers' => [

'aliases' => [
    "Settings" => QCod\Settings\Facade::class

In Laravel 5.5 or above the service provider automatically get registered and a facade Setting::get('app_name') will be available.

3 - Now run the migration by php artisan migrate to create the settings table.

Optionally you can publish migration by running

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="QCod\Settings\SettingsServiceProvider" --tag="migrations"

Getting Started

You can use helper function settings('app_name') or Settings::get('app_name') to use laravel settings.

Available methods

// Pass `true` to ignore cached settings
settings()->all($fresh = false);

// Get a single setting
settings()->get($key, $default = null);

// Set a single setting
settings()->set($key, $value);

// Set a multiple settings
   'app_name' => 'QCode',
   'app_email' => 'info@email.com',
   'app_type' => 'SaaS'

// check for setting key

// remove a setting


From v 1.0.6 You can organize your settings into groups. If you skip the group name it will store settings with default group name.

If you are updating from previous version dont forget to run the migration

You have all above methods available just set you working group by calling ->group('group_name') method and chain on:

settings()->group('team.1')->set('app_name', 'My Team App');
> My Team App

settings()->group('team.2')->set('app_name', 'My Team 2 App');
> My Team 2 App

// You can use facade
> My Team App
