Laravel Cache Partial Blade Directive

Latest Version on Packagist Software License Quality Score StyleCI Total Downloads

This package provides a Blade directive for Laravel >=5.1 to cache rendered partials in Laravel.


You can install the package via Composer:

$ composer require spatie/laravel-partialcache

In Laravel 5.5 the package's service provider and facade will be registered automatically. In older versions of Laravel, you must register them manually:

// config/app.php

'providers' => [

'aliases' => [
  'PartialCache' => Spatie\PartialCache\PartialCacheFacade::class,

The facade is optional, but the rest of this guide assumes you're using it.

Optionally publish the config files:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Spatie\PartialCache\PartialCacheServiceProvider"


The package registers a blade directive, @cache. The cache directive accepts the same arguments as @include, plus optional parameters for the amount of minutes a view should be cached for, a key unique to the rendered view, and a cache tag for the rendered view. If no minutes are provided, the view will be remembered until you manually remove it from the cache.

Note that this caches the rendered html, not the rendered php like blade's default view caching.

{{-- Simple example --}}

{{-- With extra view data --}}
@cache('products.card', ['product' => $category->products->first()])

{{-- For a certain time --}}
{{-- (cache will invalidate in 60 minutes in this example, set null to remember forever) --}}
@cache('', null, 60)

{{-- With an added key (cache entry will be partialcache.user.profile.{$user->id}) --}}
@cache('user.profile', null, null, $user->id)

{{-- With an added tag (only supported by memcached and others) }}
@cache('user.profile', null, null, $user->id, 'userprofiles')

{{-- With array of tags (only supported by memcached and others) }}
@cache('user.profile', null, null, $user->id, ['user', 'profile', 'location'])

Clearing The PartialCache

You can forget a partialcache entry with PartialCache::forget($view, $key).

PartialCache::forget('user.profile', $user->id);

If you have used @cache on an entry along with tags and your cache driver supports them (like memcached and other), you need to use the same tags to forget the entry.

// With an added tag
PartialCache::forget('user.profile', $user->id, 'userprofiles');

// With array of tags
PartialCache::forget('user.profile', $user->id, ['user', 'profile', 'location']);

If you want to flush all entries, you'll need to either call PartialCache::flush() (note: this is only supported by drivers that support tags), or clear your entire cache.


Configuration isn't necessary, but there are three options specified in the config file:

  • partialcache.enabled: Fully enable or disable the cache. Defaults to true.
  • partialcache.directive: The name of the blade directive to register. Defaults to cache.
  • partialcache.key: The base key that used for cache entries. Defaults to partialcache.
  • partialcache.default_duration: The default cache duration in minutes, set null to remember forever. Defaults to null.
