Parsedown for Laravel

Build Status

A Laravel wrapper of Parsedown to extend its features. If you want to know more about Parsedown alone check out our base repository.


  • Blade Directive
  • Helper Function


Parsedown for Laravel is available as a composer package. You can install it using the command below:

composer require "parsedown/laravel"


If you're using Laravel +5.5 you don't need to follow the steps below. The package auto-discovery feature has been implemented and will take care of loading the service provider for you.

But if that's not your case you just need to add the service provider to your config/app.php:

return [
    // Other configurations above...

    'providers' => [
        // Other providers above...
        // Other providers below...

    // Other configurations below...


@parsedown('Hello _Parsedown_!')

or (using a helper approach)

{{ parsedown('Hello _Parsedown_!') }}

Any of the codes above will generate:

<p>Hello <em>Parsedown</em>!</p>

The helper can also be used with PHP throughout the project.
