LaravelCustom Helper function


Introduction

Adding custom helpers can assist you with your development speed. There are a few things to take into consideration while writing such helper functions though, hence this tutorial.

Remarks

Just a few pointers:

  • We've put the function definitions within a check (function_exists) to prevent exceptions when the service provider is called twice.
  • An alternative way is registering the helpers file from the composer.json file. You can copy the logic from the laravel framework itself.
