Laravel Favicon Package

Laravel Favicon Package

Laravel Favicon is a package by Marcel Pociot that enables you to create dynamic favicons based on your environment settings:

The package works by using a favicon() helper function in your template, which is then modified in the environments you configure:

<link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="32x32" href="{{ favicon(asset('favicon-32x32.png')) }}">

Here’s an example of the default enabled environment configuration at the time of writing to give you an idea the values you can specify:

'enabled_environments' => [
    'local' => [
        'text' => 'DEV',
        'color' => '#000000',
        'background_color' => '#ffffff',

It uses Intervention Image, which at the time of writing supports to processing extensions: gd and imagick. If you want to convert ICO files, you need to use the imagick configuration option.

The intended use of this package is for non-production environments. Environments that don’t have matching configuration values will return the original path/URI to the static icon.
