Useragent for Laravel 4

A simple Laravel 4 service provider for including the Useragent for Laravel 4.

Installation

The Useragent Service Provider can be installed via Composer by requiring the mews/useragent package and setting the minimum-stability to dev (required for Laravel 4) in your project's composer.json.

{
    "require": {
        "laravel/framework": "4.0.*",
        "mews/useragent": "dev-master"
    },
    "minimum-stability": "dev"
}

Update your packages with composer update or install with composer install.

Usage

To use the Useragent Service Provider, you must register the provider when bootstrapping your Laravel application. There are essentially two ways to do this.

Find the providers key in app/config/app.php and register the Useragent Service Provider.

    'providers' => array(
        // ...
        'Mews\Useragent\UseragentServiceProvider',
    )

Find the aliases key in app/config/app.php.

    'aliases' => array(
        // ...
        'Useragent' => 'Mews\Useragent\Facades\Useragent',
    )

This example attempts to determine whether the user agent browsing your site is a web browser, a mobile device, or a robot. It will also gather the platform information if it is available.

if (Useragent::is_browser())
{
    $agent = Useragent::browser().' '. Useragent::version();
}
elseif (Useragent::is_robot())
{
    $agent = Useragent::robot();
}
elseif (Useragent::is_mobile())
{
    $agent = Useragent::mobile();
}
else
{
    $agent = 'Unidentified User Agent';
}

echo $agent;

echo Useragent::platform(); // Platform info (Windows, Linux, Mac, etc.)

Method Reference

All methods in the Agent class are the same as the methods in the Codeigniter user agent library. You can read the documentation http://codeigniter.com/user_guide

Note all method calls are static Eg

Useragent::is_browser(); 
You can’t perform that action at this time.
