Serializable Closure

Build Status Total Downloads Latest Stable Version License


This project is a fork of the excellent opis/closure: 3.x package. At Laravel, we decided to fork this package as the upcoming version 4.x is a complete rewrite on top of the FFI extension. As Laravel is a web framework, and FFI is not enabled by default in web requests, this fork allows us to keep using the 3.x series while adding support for new PHP versions.

Laravel Serializable Closure provides an easy and secure way to serialize closures in PHP.

Official Documentation


Requires PHP 7.4+

First, install Laravel Serializable Closure via the Composer package manager:

composer require laravel/serializable-closure


You may serialize a closure this way:

use Laravel\SerializableClosure\SerializableClosure;
$closure = fn () => 'james';
// Recommended
$serialized = serialize(new SerializableClosure($closure));
$closure = unserialize($serialized)->getClosure();
echo $closure(); // james;


  • Anonymous classes cannot be created within closures.
  • Attributes cannot be used within closures.
  • Serializing closures on REPL environments like Laravel Tinker is not supported.
  • Serializing closures that reference objects with readonly properties is not supported.
