This laravel package simplify the archives creation to make it done in one line of code. Compress any folder recursively in a .tar.gz file.

Add the use statement in top of your script:

use Yk\LaravelArchive\Archive;

To compress any folder just do:

Archive::create($filename, $source);


The package will select the compression type based on the destination file extension, and for the moment it support only .tar.gz compression. So the destination filename parameter should include .tar.gz extension.

You may miss some folders inside the created archive, you should know that empty folders are not included.


  1. add support for multiple compression types
  2. include Hidden files
