Build Status Monthly Downloads Latest Version


Require this package, with Composer, in the root directory of your project.

composer require vinkla/hashids


Laravel Hashids requires connection configuration. To get started, you'll need to publish all vendor assets:

php artisan vendor:publish

This will create a config/hashids.php file in your app that you can modify to set your configuration. Also, make sure you check for changes to the original config file in this package between releases.

Default Connection Name

This option default is where you may specify which of the connections below you wish to use as your default connection for all work. Of course, you may use many connections at once using the manager class. The default value for this setting is main.

Hashids Connections

This option connections is where each of the connections are setup for your application. Example configuration has been included, but you may add as many connections as you would like.


Here you can see an example of you may use this package. Out of the box, the default adapter is main. After you enter your authentication details in the config file, it will just work:

// You can alias this in config/app.php.
use Vinkla\Hashids\Facades\Hashids;

// We're done here - how easy was that, it just works!

// This example is simple and there are far more methods available.

The manager will behave like it is a Hashids\Hashids class. If you want to call specific connections, you can do that with the connection method:

use Vinkla\Hashids\Facades\Hashids;

// Writing this...

// identical to writing this

// and is also identical to writing this.

// This is because the main connection is configured to be the default.
Hashids::getDefaultConnection(); // This will return main.

// We can change the default connection.
Hashids::setDefaultConnection('alternative'); // The default is now alternative.

If you prefer to use dependency injection over facades, then you can inject the manager:

use Vinkla\Hashids\HashidsManager;

class Foo
    protected $hashids;

    public function __construct(HashidsManager $hashids)
        $this->hashids = $hashids;

    public function bar($id)
