Modal cookie consent

Preferences Modal

The package includes a script & styling for a cookie banner and a modal where the visitor can select his/her cookie preferences.

This package is mainly based on the one from spatie:

With the only exception that you can choose which cookies you enable. This only works when Google Tag Manager is correctly configured (some regex config based on the value set in the cookie).


You can find our upgrading guides here.


You can install the package via composer:

composer require statikbe/laravel-cookie-consent

The package will automatically register itself.

First of all you need to publish the javascript and css files:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Statikbe\CookieConsent\CookieConsentServiceProvider" --tag="cookie-public"

Include the css/cookie-consent.css into your base.blade.php or any other base template you use.

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{{asset("vendor/cookie-consent/css/cookie-consent.css")}}">

The javascript file is included in the cookie snippet and will be added at the end of your body.


Instead of including a snippet in your view, we will automatically add it. This is done using middleware using two methods:

  1. The first option: include it in your entire project using the kernel:
// app/Http/Kernel.php

class Kernel extends HttpKernel
    protected $middleware = [
        // ...

    // ...
  1. The second option: include it as a route middleware and add this to any route you want.
// app/Http/Kernel.php

class Kernel extends HttpKernel
    // ...
    protected $routeMiddleware = [
        // ...
        'cookie-consent' => \Statikbe\CookieConsent\CookieConsentMiddleware::class,

// routes/web.php
    'middleware' => ['cookie-consent']
], function(){
    // ...

This will add cookieConsent::index to the content of your response right before the closing body tag.

Customising the dialog texts

If you want to modify the text shown in the dialog you can publish the lang-files with this command:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Statikbe\CookieConsent\CookieConsentServiceProvider" --tag="cookie-lang"

This will publish this file to resources/lang/vendor/cookieConsent/en/texts.php.

return [
    'alert_title' => 'Deze website gebruikt cookies',
    'setting_analytics' => 'Analytische cookies',

If you want to translate the values to, for example, English, just copy that file over to resources/lang/vendor/cookieConsent/fr/texts.php and fill in the English translations.

Customising the dialog contents

If you need full control over the contents of the dialog. You can publish the views of the package:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Statikbe\CookieConsent\CookieConsentServiceProvider" --tag="cookie-views"

This will copy the index view file over to resources/views/vendor/cookieConsent.

The cookie-settings view file is just a snippet you need to place somewhere onto your page. Most preferably in the footer next to the url of your cookie policy.

<a href="javascript:void(0)" class="js-lcc-settings-toggle">@lang('cookie-consent::texts.alert_settings')</a>

This gives your visitor the opportunity to change the settings again.



php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Statikbe\CookieConsent\CookieConsentServiceProvider" --tag="cookie-config"

This is the contents of the published config-file: This will read the policy urls from your env.

return [
    'cookie_key' => '__cookie_consent',
    'cookie_value_analytics' => '2',
    'cookie_value_marketing' => '3',
    'cookie_value_both' => 'true',
    'cookie_value_none' => 'false',
    'cookie_expiration_days' => '365',
    'gtm_event' => 'pageview',
    'ignored_paths' => [],
    'policy_url_en' => env('COOKIE_POLICY_URL_EN', null),
    'policy_url_fr' => env('COOKIE_POLICY_URL_FR', null),
    'policy_url_nl' => env('COOKIE_POLICY_URL_NL', null),

You can customize some settings that work with your GTM.

Don't show modal on cookie policy page or other pages

If you don't want the modal to be shown on certain pages you can add the relative url to the ignored paths setting. This also accepts wildcards (see the Laravel Str::is() helper).

'ignored_paths => ['/en/cookie-policy', '/api/documentation*'];


php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Statikbe\CookieConsent\CookieConsentServiceProvider" --tag="cookie-lang"


php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Statikbe\CookieConsent\CookieConsentServiceProvider" --tag="cookie-views"
