Using the app:install Artisan command you can install the view component:

php <your-app-name> app:install view


The View component allows to render HTML views and take advantage of the blade template engine.

As usual, the usage is similar to Laravel:

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\View;

View::make('', ['foo' => 'bar']);
view('view-name', ['foo' => 'bar']);

Using views in production

In order to use Blade views in production, a view.php file must be added in the config directory to specify the path where the compiled views should be stored.

For example:


 return [
     'paths' => [
    'compiled' => \Phar::running()
        ? getcwd()
        : env('VIEW_COMPILED_PATH', realpath(storage_path('framework/views'))),

An alternative to using the current working directory is to use the system temporary directory with sys_get_temp_dir(), but any path can be specified, such as a custom location in the user's home directory.

The resources directory must also be added to the box.json file to include it in the compiled PHAR file:

 "directories": [
     // ...

Full details on using the View component is available on the main Laravel documentation.
