Simple SSR Head for Inertia Laravel

  • 😎 Solved the Open Graph Meta crawling problem in Inertia.js x Laravel app
  • ❌ No Headless Chrome, Node.js, or PHP V8 Extension
  • ✨ Auto-update Inertia page title

NOT a full SSR solution!! It doesn't solve the SEO problem!

Because I made this package to make it easier for the bot to crawl Open Graph Meta on Inertia.js App without installing (or can't installing) Headless Chrome, Node.js, or PHP V8 Extension. This is applicable in situations where you are not familiar with how to install the above packages on the server, or the server does not support them (e.g. shared hosting).

Inspired by Root template data of Inertia.js docs.


Install the package via composer:

composer require ycs77/inertia-laravel-ssr-head

Replace <title> to @inertiaHead directive:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="{{ str_replace('_', '-', app()->getLocale()) }}">
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
-   <title>{{ config('app.name') }}</title>
+   @inertiaHead


Install client plugin

And install the client npm package:

npm install inertia-title
// or
yarn add inertia-title

The package just auto-updates the client <title> tag.

Add plugin for Vue 2 in resources/js/app.js:

+import InertiaTitle from 'inertia-title/vue2'



Use in Vue 3 in resources/js/app.js:

+import InertiaTitle from 'inertia-title/vue3'

  setup({ el, app, props, plugin }) {
    createApp({ render: () => h(app, props) })
+     .use(InertiaTitle)

Use in React or other client-side frameworks:

+import { useInertiaTitle } from 'inertia-title'



Publish the config file with:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag="inertia-ssr-head-config"

You can set the twitter site username or many in config inertia-ssr-head.php:


return [

    'fb_app_id' => env('FB_APP_ID'),

    'twitter_site' => env('TWITTER_SITE'),
    'twitter_site_id' => env('TWITTER_SITE_ID'),

    'twitter_creator' => env('TWITTER_CREATOR'),
    'twitter_creator_id' => env('TWITTER_CREATOR_ID'),

    'twitter_app_name' => env('TWITTER_APP_NAME', env('APP_NAME')),

    'twitter_app_ios_id' => env('TWITTER_APP_IOS_ID'),
    'twitter_app_ios_url' => env('TWITTER_APP_IOS_URL'),

    'twitter_app_googleplay_id' => env('TWITTER_APP_GOOGLEPLAY_ID'),
    'twitter_app_googleplay_url' => env('TWITTER_APP_GOOGLEPLAY_URL'),



Setting page title and description:

return Inertia::render('Home')
    ->title('My homepage')
    ->description('Hello, This is my homepage~');

Then will be rendered to this HTML tags:

    <title>My homepage</title>
    <meta name="description" content="Hello, This is my homepage~">

The head tags just render with server-side on first visit page, the client only updates <title>, no update other meta tags. Because the purpose of this package is only to allow the bot to crawl meta tags, it is omitted on the client-side.

The title will injection to props, you can get the page title with using prop title or $page.props.title in client Vue 2/3:

export default {
  props: {
    title: String,
  mounted() {
    this.title             // => 'My homepage'  (with props)
    this.$page.props.title // => 'My homepage'  (with $page)

Also, if you are using this package, it is not recommended to use Inertia <Head>.

Title template

If you want to add the Web site name after the title, use titleTemplate() in AppServiceProvider, support using string and Closure:

use Inertia\Inertia;

class AppServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
    public function boot()
        Inertia::titleTemplate(fn ($title) => $title ? "$title - My App" : 'My App');
        // or pass string and %s will be replaced with the page title
        Inertia::titleTemplate('%s - My App');

Or setting for one Inertia page:

return Inertia::render('Home')
    ->title('My homepage', '%s :: My App');

If you want to disable title template only one page, you can set false in title():

return Inertia::render('Home')
    ->title('My homepage', false);

Open Graph meta tags

Render Open Graph tags, have title, description and ogMeta(), the ogMeta() will generate the Open Graph meta og:title, og:description, og:image:

return Inertia::render('Home')
    ->title('My homepage')
    ->description('Hello, This is my homepage~')

// Same...
return Inertia::render('Home')
    ->title('My homepage')
    ->description('Hello, This is my homepage~')
    ->ogTitle('My homepage')
    ->ogDescription('Hello, This is my homepage~')

Or if you want only render og:title, og:description meta tags:

return Inertia::render('Home')
    ->title('My homepage')
    ->ogTitle('Custom og title')
    ->ogDescription('Custom og description...');

Twitter Card meta tags
