Parse your BBCode easy with laravel-bbcode


Via Composer

composer require pherum/laravel-bbcode


To parse some text it's as easy as this!

$bbcode = new PheRum\BBCode\BBCodeParser;

echo $bbcode->parse('[b]Bold Text![/b]');
// <strong>Bold Text!</strong>

Would like the parser to not use all bbcodes? Just do like this.

$bbcode = new PheRum\BBCode\BBCodeParser;

echo $bbcode->only('bold', 'italic')
            ->parse('[b][u]Bold[/u] [i]Italic[/i]![/b]');
            // <strong>[u]Bold[/u] <em>Italic</em>!</strong>

echo $bbcode->except('bold')
            ->parse('[b]Bold[/b] [i]Italic[/i]');  // [b]Bold[/b] <em>Italic</em>

By default the parser is case sensitive. But if you would like the parser to accept tags like [B]Bold Text[/B] it's really easy.

$bbcode = new PheRum\BBCode\BBCodeParser;

// Case insensitive
echo $bbcode->parse('[b]Bold[/b] [I]Italic![/I]', true); // <strong>Bold</strong> <em>Italic!</em>

// Or like this

echo $bbcode->parseCaseInsensitive('[b]Bold[/b] [i]Italic[/i]');
     // <strong>Bold</strong> <em>Italic!</em>

You could also make it more explicit that the parser is case sensitive by using another helper function.

    $bbcode = new PheRum\BBCode\BBCodeParser;

    echo $bbcode->parseCaseSensitive('[b]Bold[/b] [I]Italic![/I]');
         // <strong>Bold</strong> [I]Italic![/I]

If you would like to completely remove all BBCode it's just one function call away.

    $bbcode = new PheRum\BBCode\BBCodeParser;

    echo $bbcode->stripBBCodeTags('[b]Bold[/b] [i]Italic![/i]');  // Bold Italic!

Laravel integration

The integration into Laravel is really easy, and the method is the same for both Laravel 5. Just open your app.php config file.

In there you just add this to your providers array


And this to your facades array

'BBCode' => PheRum\BBCode\Facades\BBCode::class,

The syntax is the same as if you would use it in vanilla PHP but with the BBCode:: before the methods. Here are some examples.

// Simple parsing
echo BBCode::parse('[b]Bold Text![/b]');

// Limiting the parsers with the only method
echo BBCode::only('bold', 'italic')
        ->parse('[b][u]Bold[/u] [i]Italic[/i]![/b]'); // <strong>[u]Bold[/u] <em>Italic</em>!</strong>

// Or the except method
echo BBCode::except('bold')
        ->parse('[b]Bold[/b] [i]Italic[/i]'); // [b]Bold[/b] <em>Italic</em>
