Jaxon Library for Laravel

This package integrates the Jaxon library into the Laravel 5 framework.


  • Automatically register Jaxon classes from a preset directory.
  • Read Jaxon options from a file in Laravel config format.


Add the following lines in the composer.json file, and run the composer update command.

"require": {
    "jaxon-php/jaxon-laravel": "^3.1"

Add the following line to the providers entry in the app.php config file.


Add the following line to the aliases entry in the app.php config file.

'LaravelJaxon' => Jaxon\Laravel\Facades\Jaxon::class

Publish the package configuration.

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=config

Edit the config/jaxon.php file to suit the needs of your application.


The settings in the jaxon.php config file are separated into two sections. The options in the lib section are those of the Jaxon core library, while the options in the app sections are those of the Laravel application.

The following options can be defined in the app section of the config file.

Name Description
directories An array of directory containing Jaxon application classes
views An array of directory containing Jaxon application views

By default, the views array is empty. Views are rendered from the framework default location. There's a single entry in the directories array with the following values.

Name Default value Description
directory app_path('Jaxon/Classes') The directory of the Jaxon classes
namespace \Jaxon\App The namespace of the Jaxon classes
separator . The separator in Jaxon class names
protected empty array Prevent Jaxon from exporting some methods

The route option is overriden by the core.request.uri option of the Jaxon library.


This is an example of a Laravel controller using the Jaxon library.

use Jaxon\Laravel\Jaxon;

class DemoController extends Controller
    public function __construct(Jaxon $jaxon)
        $this->jaxon = $jaxon;

    public function index()
        // Print the page
        return view('index', [
            'JaxonCss' => $this->jaxon->css(),
            'JaxonJs' => $this->jaxon->js(),
            'JaxonScript' => $this->jaxon->script()

Before it prints the page, the controller calls the $this->jaxon->css(), $this->jaxon->js() and $this->jaxon->script() functions to get the CSS and javascript codes generated by Jaxon, which it inserts into the page.

The Jaxon classes

The Jaxon classes can inherit from \Jaxon\CallableClass. By default, they are located in the app/Jaxon/Classes dir of the Laravel application, and the associated namespace is \Jaxon\App.

This is a simple example of a Jaxon class, defined in the app/Jaxon/Classes/HelloWorld.php file.

namespace Jaxon\App;

class HelloWorld extends \Jaxon\CallableClass
    public function sayHello()
        $this->response->assign('div2', 'innerHTML', 'Hello World!');
        return $this->response;
