Pretend you have an application or package that you would like to ensure has the right version information in composer.json, you can run php artisan bump to get automatically increase version information.

For more information about versioning please visit http://semver.org/

Given a version number MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH, increment the:

  • MAJOR version when you make incompatible API changes,
  • MINOR version when you add functionality in a backwards-compatible manner, and
  • PATCH version when you make backwards-compatible bug fixes.


List of all commands:

php artisan bump:patch Increments PATCH version (major.minor.PATCH => verison 0.0.1)

Example output: Bump from: 0.0.1 to 0.0.2

php artisan bump:minor Bump MINOR version (major.MINOR.patch => verison 0.1.0)

Example output: Bump from: 0.0.2 to 0.1.0

php artisan bump:major Bump MAJOR version (MAJOR.minor.patch => verison 1.0.0)

Example output: Bump from: 0.1.0 to 1.0.0

Using Facade support:

In your controller you can easy get and return version of your application or package

`return ComposerBump::getVersion();`


Step 1: Install through Composer

composer require talevskiigor/composer-bump

Step 2: Update config/app.php and insert the folowing line in Service Provider


Step 3 (optional): Add Facade support


If you want to use this package for only local development, you don't need to update config/app.php. Instead, you can update provider app/Providers/AppServiceProvider.php, for example:

public function register()
    if ($this->app->environment() == 'local') {

Step 4: Run the new Artisan Commands

`php artisan bump` - this is alias of `bump:patch`

Nice to know

Package will make backup copy of you composer.json file on each use, so you can easy do undo on changes, simple use undo command as:

`php artisan bump:undo`

Example output:

!!! WARNING !!!!!! WARNING !!!!!! WARNING !!!
    This will replace content of: composer.json file with content from file: composer.json-backup   !!!

 Are you suere? [y|N] (yes/no) [no]:
 > yes

Restored file: composer.json-backup into file: composer.json
