Theme support for Laravel 6 / 7 / 8

Inspired by bigecko/laravel-theme. Themes are stored inside default laravel's resources folder


Require this package in your composer.json:

composer require remzikocak/theme

Or manually add

"remzikocak/theme": "4.*"

Optionally, publish config using artisan CLI (if you want to overwrite default config).

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="YAAP\Theme\ThemeServiceProvider"

Package config

	return array(
        'path'          => base_path('resources/themes'),
        'assets_path'   => 'themes',

Theme config

	return array(
        'name'         => 'default',
        'inherit'      => null,

Create theme with artisan CLI

The first time you have to create theme "default" structure, using the artisan command:

php artisan theme:create default

In order to seed webpack.mix.js with custom rules add --with-mix option

php artisan theme:create default --with-mix

To delete an existing theme, use the command:

php artisan theme:destroy default

###Init theme


This will add to views find path:

  • themes/{$name}
  • themes/{$name}/views

Lang files will be added as well:

  • themes/{$name}/lang

Making view



Use laravel mix for assets.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ mix('/themes/default/css/app.min.css') }}"/>
<script type="text/javascript" src="{{ mix('/themes/default/js/app.min.js') }}"></script>

###Blade templates




	    <section id="main">


###Fallback capability

You still able to use default View::make('emails.notify') which is stored outside the themes directory
