In Laravel 5.5 “vendor:publish” Gets A Provider Prompt


March 13th, 2017

In previous versions of Laravel the vendor:publish command will publish everything it finds, this includes configs, views, migrations, and more.

Thanks to Trevor Fitzgerald starting with Laravel 5.5, that is due out in July, running this command without any flags will prompt you to pick a provider or tag to make it easier to only publish what you’d like.

Here is a great animated gif showing this action: (click to enlarge)

The prompt can be bypassed by using either the --all or --provider flag. This means you can still use it in automated deployments and in your package instructions.
