Laravel's 'contracts' are a set of interfaces that define the core services provided by the framework. For example, an IlluminateContractsQueueQueue contract defines the methods needed for queueing jobs, while the IlluminateContractsMailMailer contract defines the methods needed for sending e-mail.

Each contract has a corresponding implementation provided by the framework. For example, Laravel provides a queue implementation with a variety of drivers, and a mailer implementation that is powered by SwiftMailer.

All of the Laravel contracts live in their own GitHub repository. This provides a quick reference point for all available contracts, as well as a single, decoupled package that may be utilized when building packages that interact with Laravel services.

Contracts Vs. Facades

Laravel's facades and helper functions provide a simple way of utilizing Laravel's services without needing to type-hint and resolve contracts out of the service container. In most cases, each facade has an equivalent contract.

Unlike facades, which do not require you to require them in your class' constructor, contracts allow you to define explicit dependencies for your classes. Some developers prefer to explicitly define their dependencies in this way and therefore prefer to use contracts, while other developers enjoy the convenience of facades. In general, most applications can use facades without issue during development.

When To Use Contracts

The decision to use contracts or facades will come down to personal taste and the tastes of your development team. Both contracts and facades can be used to create robust, well-tested Laravel applications. Contracts and facades are not mutually exclusive. Some parts of your applications may use facades while others depend on contracts. As long as you are keeping your class' responsibilities focused, you will notice very few practical differences between using contracts and facades.

In general, most applications can use facades without issue during development. If you are building a package that integrates with multiple PHP frameworks you may wish to use the illuminate/contracts package to define your integration with Laravel's services without the need to require Laravel's concrete implementations in your package's composer.json file.

How To Use Contracts

So, how do you get an implementation of a contract? It's actually quite simple.

Many types of classes in Laravel are resolved through the service container, including controllers, event listeners, middleware, queued jobs, and even route closures. So, to get an implementation of a contract, you can just 'type-hint' the interface in the constructor of the class being resolved.

For example, take a look at this event listener:

When the event listener is resolved, the service container will read the type-hints on the constructor of the class, and inject the appropriate value. To learn more about registering things in the service container, check out its documentation.

Contract Reference

This table provides a quick reference to all of the Laravel contracts and their equivalent facades:

Creating Responses

Strings & Arrays

All routes and controllers should return a response to be sent back to the user's browser. Laravel provides several different ways to return responses. The most basic response is returning a string from a route or controller. The framework will automatically convert the string into a full HTTP response:

In addition to returning strings from your routes and controllers, you may also return arrays. The framework will automatically convert the array into a JSON response:

{tip} Did you know you can also return Eloquent collections from your routes or controllers? They will automatically be converted to JSON. Give it a shot!

Response Objects

Typically, you won't just be returning simple strings or arrays from your route actions. Instead, you will be returning full IlluminateHttpResponse instances or views.

Returning a full Response instance allows you to customize the response's HTTP status code and headers. A Response instance inherits from the SymfonyComponentHttpFoundationResponse class, which provides a variety of methods for building HTTP responses:

Eloquent Models & Collections

You may also return Eloquent ORM models and collections directly from your routes and controllers. When you do, Laravel will automatically convert the models and collections to JSON responses while respecting the model's hidden attributes:

Attaching Headers To Responses

Keep in mind that most response methods are chainable, allowing for the fluent construction of response instances. For example, you may use the header method to add a series of headers to the response before sending it back to the user:

Or, you may use the withHeaders method to specify an array of headers to be added to the response:

Cache Control Middleware

Laravel includes a cache.headers middleware, which may be used to quickly set the Cache-Control header for a group of routes. If etag is specified in the list of directives, an MD5 hash of the response content will automatically be set as the ETag identifier:

Attaching Cookies To Responses

Laravel Cookie

You may attach a cookie to an outgoing IlluminateHttpResponse instance using the cookie method. You should pass the name, value, and the number of minutes the cookie should be considered valid to this method:

The cookie method also accepts a few more arguments which are used less frequently. Generally, these arguments have the same purpose and meaning as the arguments that would be given to PHP's native setcookie method:

If you would like to ensure that a cookie is sent with the outgoing response but you do not yet have an instance of that response, you can use the Cookie facade to 'queue' cookies for attachment to the response when it is sent. The queue method accepts the arguments needed to create a cookie instance. These cookies will be attached to the outgoing response before it is sent to the browser:

Generating Cookie Instances

If you would like to generate a SymfonyComponentHttpFoundationCookie instance that can be attached to a response instance at a later time, you may use the global cookie helper. This cookie will not be sent back to the client unless it is attached to a response instance:

Expiring Cookies Early

You may remove a cookie by expiring it via the withoutCookie method of an outgoing response:

If you do not yet have an instance of the outgoing response, you may use the Cookie facade's expire method to expire a cookie:

Cookies & Encryption

By default, all cookies generated by Laravel are encrypted and signed so that they can't be modified or read by the client. If you would like to disable encryption for a subset of cookies generated by your application, you may use the $except property of the AppHttpMiddlewareEncryptCookies middleware, which is located in the app/Http/Middleware directory:


Redirect responses are instances of the IlluminateHttpRedirectResponse class, and contain the proper headers needed to redirect the user to another URL. There are several ways to generate a RedirectResponse instance. The simplest method is to use the global redirect helper:

Sometimes you may wish to redirect the user to their previous location, such as when a submitted form is invalid. You may do so by using the global back helper function. Since this feature utilizes the session, make sure the route calling the back function is using the web middleware group:

Redirecting To Named Routes

When you call the redirect helper with no parameters, an instance of IlluminateRoutingRedirector is returned, allowing you to call any method on the Redirector instance. For example, to generate a RedirectResponse to a named route, you may use the route method:

If your route has parameters, you may pass them as the second argument to the route method:

Populating Parameters Via Eloquent Models

If you are redirecting to a route with an 'ID' parameter that is being populated from an Eloquent model, you may pass the model itself. The ID will be extracted automatically:

If you would like to customize the value that is placed in the route parameter, you can specify the column in the route parameter definition (/profile/{id:slug}) or you can override the getRouteKey method on your Eloquent model:

Redirecting To Controller Actions

You may also generate redirects to controller actions. To do so, pass the controller and action name to the action method:

If your controller route requires parameters, you may pass them as the second argument to the action method:

Redirecting To External Domains

Sometimes you may need to redirect to a domain outside of your application. You may do so by calling the away method, which creates a RedirectResponse without any additional URL encoding, validation, or verification:

Redirecting With Flashed Session Data

Redirecting to a new URL and flashing data to the session are usually done at the same time. Typically, this is done after successfully performing an action when you flash a success message to the session. For convenience, you may create a RedirectResponse instance and flash data to the session in a single, fluent method chain:

After the user is redirected, you may display the flashed message from the session. For example, using Blade syntax:

Redirecting With Input

You may use the withInput method provided by the RedirectResponse instance to flash the current request's input data to the session before redirecting the user to a new location. This is typically done if the user has encountered a validation error. Once the input has been flashed to the session, you may easily retrieve it during the next request to repopulate the form:

Other Response Types

The response helper may be used to generate other types of response instances. When the response helper is called without arguments, an implementation of the IlluminateContractsRoutingResponseFactorycontract is returned. This contract provides several helpful methods for generating responses.

View Responses

If you need control over the response's status and headers but also need to return a view as the response's content, you should use the view method:

Of course, if you do not need to pass a custom HTTP status code or custom headers, you may use the global view helper function.

JSON Responses

The json method will automatically set the Content-Type header to application/json, as well as convert the given array to JSON using the json_encode PHP function:


If you would like to create a JSONP response, you may use the json method in combination with the withCallback method:

File Downloads

The download method may be used to generate a response that forces the user's browser to download the file at the given path. The download method accepts a filename as the second argument to the method, which will determine the filename that is seen by the user downloading the file. Finally, you may pass an array of HTTP headers as the third argument to the method:

Laravel CookieValue

{note} Symfony HttpFoundation, which manages file downloads, requires the file being downloaded to have an ASCII filename.

Streamed Downloads

Sometimes you may wish to turn the string response of a given operation into a downloadable response without having to write the contents of the operation to disk. You may use the streamDownload method in this scenario. This method accepts a callback, filename, and an optional array of headers as its arguments:

File Responses

The file method may be used to display a file, such as an image or PDF, directly in the user's browser instead of initiating a download. This method accepts the path to the file as its first argument and an array of headers as its second argument:

Response Macros

If you would like to define a custom response that you can re-use in a variety of your routes and controllers, you may use the macro method on the Response facade. Typically, you should call this method from the boot method of one of your application's service providers, such as the AppProvidersAppServiceProvider service provider:

The macro function accepts a name as its first argument and a closure as its second argument. The macro's closure will be executed when calling the macro name from a ResponseFactory implementation or the response helper:
