Laravel Blade Components

Blade components are a subset of blade template that allow you to create new custom, reusable, encapsulated PHP and HTML.

For example you may want to create a layout to be used in many of your application pages. So you build your layout as a component and can reused the component wherever you want.

When created, component can be call with same syntax as any html tag:

<x-layout>
<x-slot>
</x-slot>
</x-layout>

Class based component

Class based component is compose of a php file that encapsulate component logic and a template file.

To create a class based component you can use the Artisan command make:component

php artisan make:component Layout

This command will create two files:

app\View\Components\Layout.php
resources\views\components\layout.blade.php

The Layout.php file is a class that inherits from Component

<?php

namespace App\View\Components;

use Illuminate\View\Component;

class Layout extends Component
{
public function __construct()
{
//
}

public function render()
{
return view('components.layout');
}
}

the layout.blade.php template file is an empty container:

<div>
<!-- Very little is needed to make a happy life. - Marcus Antoninus -->
</div>

Let’s do an example:

When the component will be created you can call your new component by using the x-name syntax:

<x-layout :title="$title"/>

The x- is a convention that tell Laravel to render the specified component name.

The “:” prefix in :message tell Laravel that the content of the props will be bind to a php expression/variables.

When you append the x- before the component name, Laravel know where to look to find your component.

You can retreived those value in the component class file:
