Laravel Make Facade Command

Facades can be extremely helpful in Laravel. This package adds a simple command to the CLI to add an easy way to create a new facade.

Example

Use the following command to create a new facade:

php artisan make:facade NameOfFacade

This command creates a file in the folder app/Facades. It also creates a new FacadeServiceProvider.php file and updates this file everytime a new Facade is created.

After creating the first facade, this FacadeServiceProvider should be added to the providers array in config/app.php.

If you want to create a facade called 'Facebook', run the following command:

php artisan make:facade Facebook

This command will perform the following tasks:

  • create the file app/Facades/Facebook.php
  • create the file app/Providers/FacadeServiceProvider.php if this file does not exists yet
  • adds an entry to the FacadeServiceProvider for this facade

You still have to add the FacadeServiceProvider to config/app.php and check if the facade returns the correct class.

Installation

Require this package with composer.

composer require eelcol/laravel-make-facade

Laravel 5.5 and up uses Package Auto-Discovery, so doesn't require you to manually add the ServiceProvider.

If you don't use auto-discovery, add the ServiceProvider to the providers array in config/app.php
