Artisan View

Latest Version on Packagist Total Downloads Software License Build Status StyleCI

This package adds a handful of view-related commands to Artisan in your Laravel project. Generate blade files that extend other views, scaffold out sections to add to those templates, and more. All from the command line we know and love!



You'll have to follow a couple of simple steps to install this package.


Via composer:

$ composer require sven/artisan-view:^3.0 --dev

Or add the package to your development dependencies in composer.json and run composer update sven/artisan-view to download the package:

    "require-dev": {
        "sven/artisan-view": "^3.0"

Registering the service provider

If you're using Laravel 5.5, you can skip this step. The service provider will have already been registered thanks to auto-discovery.

Otherwise, register Sven\ArtisanView\ServiceProvider::class manually in your AppServiceProvider's register method:

public function register()
    if ($this->app->environment() !== 'production') {


If you now run php artisan you will see two new commands in the list:

  • make:view
  • scrap:view

Creating views

# Create a view 'index.blade.php' in the default directory
$ php artisan make:view index

# Create a view 'index.blade.php' in a subdirectory ('pages')
$ php artisan make:view pages.index

# Create a view with a different file extension ('index.html')
$ php artisan make:view index --extension=html

Extending and sections

# Extend an existing view
$ php artisan make:view index --extends=app

# Add a section to the view
$ php artisan make:view index --section=content

# Add multiple sections to the view
$ php artisan make:view index --section=title --section=content

# Add an inline section to the view
# Remember to add quotes around the section if you want to use spaces
$ php artisan make:view index --section="title:Hello world"

# Create sections for each @yield statement in the extended view
$ php artisan make:view index --extends=app --with-yields

# Add @push directives for each @stack statement in the extended view
$ php artisan make:view index --extends=app --with-stacks

REST resources

# Create a resource called 'products'
$ php artisan make:view products --resource

# Create a resource with only specific verbs
$ php artisan make:view products --resource --verb=index --verb=create --verb=edit

Scrapping views

# Remove the view 'index.blade.php'
$ php artisan scrap:view index

# Remove the view by dot notation
$ php artisan scrap:view pages.index

This will ask you if you're sure. To skip this question, pass the --force flag:

# Don't ask for confirmation
$ php artisan scrap:view index --force

Scrapping a REST resource

# Remove the resource called 'products'
$ php artisan scrap:view products --resource

This will remove the views products.index, products.show, products.create, and products.edit. If the directory products/ is empty after doing that, it will also be deleted.

You can scrap part of a resource by adding --verb flags:

# Remove the 'products.create' and 'products.edit' views.
$ php artisan scrap:view products --resource --verb=create --verb=edit

Mix and match

Of course, all the options work well together like you'd expect. So the following command...

$ php artisan make:view products --resource --extends=app --section="title:This is my title" --section=content

... will put the following contents in products/index.blade.php, products/edit.blade.php, products/create.blade.php, and products/show.blade.php:


@section('title', 'This is my title')
