Luhn Algorithm Package for Laravel

Luhn Algorithm Package for Laravel

Laravel Luhn is a package by Vincent Prat that provides utilities to ease validation and computation of credit cards, SIREN codes, and other use-cases for the Luhn algorithm.

The Luhn algorithm (Wikipedia), developed in the 1950’s by IBM scientist Hans Peter Luhn, is a “simple checksum formula used to validate a variety of identification numbers.” Such numbers range from credit card numbers to various types of government identification numbers such as NPI numbers issued to health care providers.

Using the Laravel Luhn package, you can validate numbers using the package’s validation rule:


$validator = Validator::make($data, [
    'number1' => 'luhn', // Using shorthand notation
    'number2' => new LuhnRule(), // Using custom rule class

The Luhn algorithm implementation using the provided facade includes three methods, including isValid(), computeCheckDigit(), and computeCheckSum():
