Storage Package for Laravel 4

Storage is a filesystem abstraction layer for Laravel 4 applications. If you are using Laravel 5 it comes with a similar package included which can be found in the docs.

Installation via Composer

Add this to you composer.json file, in the require object:

"dmyers/laravel-storage": "1.*"

After that, run composer install to install Storage.

Add the service provider to app/config/app.php, within the providers array.

'providers' => array(
    // ...
    'Dmyers\Storage\StorageServiceProvider',
)

Add a class alias to app/config/app.php, within the aliases array.

'aliases' => array(
    // ...
    'Storage' => 'Dmyers\Storage\Storage',
)

Finally, ensure the files directory defined in the config file is created and writable by the web server (defaults to public/files).

$ mkdir public/files
$ chmod -R 777 public/files

Configuration

Publish the default config file to your application so you can make modifications.

$ php artisan config:publish dmyers/laravel-storage
