Laravel Shaarli

It's a free and open source platform to host by yourself. Shaarli allows you to save your web links (websites, youtube videos, ...), to share your stories and manage your web accounts.

All of your content can be private or public and can be browsed by tags or all-in-one search.

It's ready to use for production. Laravel Shaarli is inspired by Shaarli but built with Laravel and Vue.js.

git clone && cd laravel-shaarli
cp .env.example .env # Then edit it
composer install

Then run php artisan shaarli:install (for interactive installation) or php artisan migrate --seed (with default data). Default user is with password secret.

Additional configuration

Laravel Shaarli is built with Laravel 6. There's many ways to configuration database, session, mail and queue:


Each link you share can be archived the way you want:

  • youtube-dl when available on your system, will be used to download media from youtube, soundcloud, vimeo and few more sites.

  • Puppeteer will be used by default to save the webpage as a PDF.

You can adjust archiving configuration in the settings section.


Global privacy

If you don't want your content being publicy accessible, you can update this preference once application is installed from settings section.


You're able to active 2-FA (2 factors authentication). By default 2-FA is disabled but you can update it from your app settings. Code length and code expiration are also configurable. Test if you application can send emails before enabling this feature.

Auth monitoring

Shaarli logs all successful and failed auths with their associated devices.

Chests encryption

Since 1.2.9, all chests data are encrypted in your database using AES-256-CBC and your app key.


Others users can be admin or non-admin. Admin users are like the main user and have an access to the entire content. Non-admin users can't access the settings section and can only see their own private content.


Update the application by running:

php artisan down
git reset --hard
git pull origin master
composer install --no-dev -o
php artisan migrate --force -n
php artisan optimize
php artisan view:clear
php artisan queue:restart # if you're using queues
php artisan up

Going live

Check these options before going live.

Composer flags composer install --no-dev -o

.env options

CACHE_DRIVER=file # or redis
SESSION_DRIVER=file # or redis
QUEUE_CONNECTION=sync # or redis, database

Artisan routines

php artisan optimize
php artisan view:clear

Artisan commands

Install command

php artisan shaarli:install

This command will install default data (seeder) or ask you for the default user.

Encrypt and decrypt

Encryption is made on the fly for your chests, but you can manually encrypt or decrypt them by running php artisan shaarli:chests:encrypt or php artisan shaarli:chests:decrypt.


Our dependencies with link to their documentation and why we use it.


  • laravel-auth-checker is used to keep a trace of auth attempts
  • scout is used for full-text search in database
  • excel is used to generate exports as xlsx or csv
  • valuestore is used for application settings
  • puphpeteer is used to save your links as PDF using a chrome browser
  • youtube-dl-php is a bridge to youtube-dl to save you links (youtube, soundcloud, ...) as a local copy



All contribution are welcome! Please use the dev branch for your pull requests.
If you make changes to JS, don't compile assets in production, I'll manually compile them when merging for security reasons.


  1. Be sure to have a testing database with touch database/testing.sqlite and have composer require-dev dependencies installer.
  2. Run testing server php artisan serve --env=testing.
  3. Run tests php artisan dusk --env=testing
