Snippets, tools, views for Laravel 5.4 app

1.1.19 2019-05-03 04:22 UTC


A set of code snippets and functions to use across all projects.

This package contains some modifications made over a fresh installation of Laravel >= 5.3.

With time, this package would contain all modifications of the bare Laravel app. In other words, as soon as you include this package in your composer.json, you will get fully working starter kit.

Current version: Latest Stable Version



  1. Add "unrulynatives/helpers": "^1.0" to your composer.json file.

  2. Add this to your config/app.php file in packages section Unrulynatives\Helpers\HelpersServiceProvider::class,

  3. Publish views, css & jQuery files to your app:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Unrulynatives\Helpers\HelpersServiceProvider" --force

Should you wish to publish to app folder only selected resources, use these commands:

  • public assets (js, css) php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Unrulynatives\Helpers\HelpersServiceProvider" --tag=publicassets --force

  • app files: Controllers, route files, Models php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Unrulynatives\Helpers\HelpersServiceProvider" --tag=app --force

  • app files: View files php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Unrulynatives\Helpers\HelpersServiceProvider" --tag=views --force


  • app files: View files to be copied to resources/views/layouts/ folder php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Unrulynatives\Helpers\HelpersServiceProvider" --tag=viewslayouts --force

  • migration files php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Unrulynatives\Helpers\HelpersServiceProvider" --tag=migrations --force

  • seed files php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Unrulynatives\Helpers\HelpersServiceProvider" --tag=seeds --force

  1. Register the package in your User model and wherever you see it is necessary - see features section.

In your User model: `use Unrulynatives\Helpers\UserExtensions;

class User extends Authenticatable {

use UserExtensions;`

  1. Register trait in other models In your model file declare: `use Unrulynatives\Helpers\ModelExtensions;

class [your-model-name-goes-here] extends Authenticatable {

use ModelExtensions;`

  1. You need to register the routes defined in this package. Open \app\Providers\RouteServiceProvider.php and
  • add $this->mapUnstarterRoutes(); to the map() function and
  • add the below code at the bottom of mapWebRoutes() fucntion:
    protected function mapUnstarterRoutes()
            'middleware' => 'web',
            'namespace' => $this->namespace,
        ], function ($router) {
            require base_path('unstarter/routes/unstarter.php');
