Installation

From the command line run

$ composer require torann/laravel-meta-tags

Once Meta Tags is installed you need to register the service provider with the application. Open up config/app.php and find the providers key.

Meta Tags also ships with a facade which provides the static syntax for creating collections. You can register the facade in the aliases key of your config/app.php file.

'aliases' => array(

    'MetaTag'   => Torann\LaravelMetaTags\Facades\MetaTag::class,

)

Publish the configurations

Run this on the command line from the root of your project:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Torann\LaravelMetaTags\MetaTagsServiceProvider"

A configuration file will be publish to config/meta-tags.php.

Twitter Cards and OpenGraph

Various settings for these options can be found in the config/meta-tags.php file.

Twitter Cards

{!! MetaTag::twitterCard() !!}

OpenGraph
