Laravel 5 Integration

To integrate Filepicker with Laravel 5 follow these steps:

Copy the assets folder to your Laravel public directory and the uploader folder into your app directory.

Edit your composer.json file and add the following line to the psr-4 autoload:

"Hazzard\\Filepicker\\": "app/uploader/src"

Then run:

composer require hazzard/config
composer require intervention/image
composer dumpautoload

Create a FilepickerController controller and add:


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Routing\Controller as BaseController;

use Hazzard\Filepicker\Handler;
use Hazzard\Filepicker\Uploader;
use Intervention\Image\ImageManager;
use Hazzard\Config\Repository as Config;

class FilepickerController extends BaseController
     * @var \Hazzard\Filepicker\Handler
    protected $handler;

     * Create a new controller instance.
    public function __construct()
        $this->handler = new Handler(
            new Uploader($config = new Config, new ImageManager)

        $config['upload_dir'] =  public_path('files');
        $config['upload_url'] = '/files';
        $config['debug'] = config('app.debug');

     * Handle an incoming HTTP request.
     * @param  \Illuminate\Http\Request $request
     * @return \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response
    public function handle(Request $request)
        return $this->handler->handle($request);

Edit your routes.php file and add:

Route::any('filepicker', 'FilepickerController@handle');

Then in your view make sure to set the url option to /filepicker (or whatever route you choose) and add the CSRF Token in the data array:

data: {
    _token: "{{ csrf_token() }}"
