Laravel Custom HTML

Based on HTML and Form Builders from Laravelcollective

This library offer :

  • 14 publishable components
  • 2 themes (TailwindCSS and Bootstrap).
  • A new component "control()" allow you to have an input, his label and his error message within a parent block, in one call.

The easiest way to install this library is to simply replace LC/HTML by this tool.


Simply launch this command from the root folder of your project :

composer require tomjamon/laravel-custom-html

Customize components

If you want to use a theme, or custom your views :

Publish vendor views : php artisan vendor:publish

Choose : Provider: TomJamon\Html\HtmlServiceProvider

A new folder resources/views/vendor/customhtml will be created with every components.

You can now change every components classes and stuff.


If you want to use a theme you can customize it in config/customhtml.php

FYI : Creating a TailwindCSS theme is the opposite of what Tailwind is made for. Please custom the theme, the theme is just giving a little help, an example of each component.

Project with login & register in Laravel Custom HTML

Cmd : Composer install && npm run prod && php artisan serve

Pro Tip : Just change config/customhtml.php and to a php artisan optimize

Simple text input

{!! Form::control('text', 'name', $errors, [
    'label' => 'Nom Prenom',
    'placeholder' => 'John Doe',
    'md' => '1/2'
]) !!}

Input Medium


{!! Form::control('select', 'type', $errors, [
    'label' => 'Type',
    'message' => 'Choose wisely the type of object',
    'data' => [
        'one' => 'First choice', 
        'two' => 'Second choice', 
        'three' => 'Third choice'
]) !!}

Textarea with an overrided rows number (Second array arguments)

{!! Form::control('textarea', 'content', $errors, [
    'label' => 'Content',
    'placeholder' => 'Post content',
], [
    'rows' => '25'
]) !!}

Input File

With the control call, generating for you a label and parent block

{!! Form::control('file', 'thumbnail', $errors, [
    'label' => 'Your thumbnail',
]) !!}

Or you can directly insert the input file :

{!! Form::file('thumbnail')  !!}

And don't forget the 'files' => true in the Form::model() or Form::open()

Why use : Clarity and simplicity

Here is how a form can look like

Login form

{!! Form::open(['route' => 'login']) !!}
    {!! Form::control('text', 'email', $errors, [...],  [...]) !!}
    {!! Form::control('password', 'password', $errors, [...]) !!}
    {!! Form::control('checkbox', 'remember', $errors, [...], [...]) !!}
    {!! Form::submit('Sign in') !!}
{!! Form::close() !!}
