Comments is a Laravel package. With it you can easily implement native comments for your application.

Become a Patron


This package can be used to comment on any model you have in your application.

All comments are stored in a single table with a polymorphic relation for content and a one-to-many relation for the user who posted the comment.

One comment:

One comment edit form:

Two comments from different users:

Tutorials & articles

I plan to expand this chapter with more tutorials and articles. If you write something about this package let me know, so that I can update this chapter.



From the command line:

composer require laravelista/comments

Run migrations

We need to create the table for comments.

php artisan migrate

Add Commenter trait to your User model

Add the Commenter trait to your User model so that you can retrieve the comments for a user:

use Laravelista\Comments\Commenter;

class User extends Authenticatable
    use Notifiable, Commenter;

Add Commentable trait to models

Add the Commentable trait to the model for which you want to enable comments for:

use Laravelista\Comments\Commentable;

class Product extends Model
    use Commentable;

Publish Config & configure (optional)

In the config file you can specify:

  • where is your User model located; the default is \App\User::class

Publish the config file (optional):

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Laravelista\Comments\ServiceProvider" --tag=config

Publish views (customization)

The default UI is made for Bootstrap 4, but you can change it however you want.

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Laravelista\Comments\ServiceProvider" --tag=views


In the view where you want to display comments, place this code and modify it:

@comments(['model' => $book])

In the example above we are setting the commentable_type to the class of the book. We are also passing the commentable_id the id of the book so that we know to which book the comments relate to. Behind the scenes, the package detects the currently logged in user if any.

If you open the page containing the view where you have placed the above code, you should see a working comments form.


This package fires events to let you know when things happen.

  • Laravelista\Comments\Events\CommentCreated
  • Laravelista\Comments\Events\CommentUpdated
  • Laravelista\Comments\Events\CommentDeleted
