  2. Enable the package in app.php
  3. Configure your Bitly credentials
  4. (Optional) Configure the package facade

Step 1: Download laravel-bitly using composer

Add shivella/laravel-bitly by running the command:

composer require shivella/laravel-bitly

Step 2: Enable the package in app.php

Register the Service in: config/app.php

Shivella\Bitly\BitlyServiceProvider::class,

Step 3: Configure Bitly credentials

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Shivella\Bitly\BitlyServiceProvider"

Add this in you .env file

BITLY_ACCESS_TOKEN=your_secret_bitly_access_token

Step 4 (Optional): Configure the package facade

Register the Bitly Facade in: config/app.php

'aliases' => [

        'App' => Illuminate\Support\Facades\App::class,
        'Artisan' => Illuminate\Support\Facades\Artisan::class,
        'Auth' => Illuminate\Support\Facades\Auth::class,
        ...
        'Bitly' => Shivella\Bitly\Facade\Bitly::class,

Usage

$url = app('bitly')->getUrl('https://www.google.com/'); // http://bit.ly/nHcn3

Or if you want to use facade, add this in your class after namespace declaration:

use Bitly;

Then you can use it directly by calling Bitly:: like:

$url = Bitly::getUrl('https://www.google.com/'); // http://bit.ly/nHcn3
