Manual Installation


Install the Laravel Splade package using composer:

composer require protonemedia/laravel-splade

Add the Route Middleware to the Http/Kernel.php file:

class Kernel extends HttpKernel
protected $routeMiddleware = [
'splade' => \ProtoneMedia\Splade\Http\SpladeMiddleware::class,

Then in the routes file, typically web.php, you may use the Middleware:

Route::middleware('splade')->group(function () {
Route::view('/', 'welcome');
Route::view('/contact', 'contact');

Lastly, in the register method of the Exceptions/Handler.php file, you need to register Splade's Exception Handler:

use ProtoneMedia\Splade\SpladeCore;
class Handler extends ExceptionHandler
public function register()


On the frontend, you must ensure Tailwind CSS 3.0 and Vue 3.0 are correctly configured. Then, install the Splade frontend package:

npm install @protonemedia/laravel-splade

In your Tailwind configuration file, make sure you add the Splade package to the content array:

module.exports = {
content: [

In the createApp section of your main JavaScript file, you need to use the Splade plugin, as well as the custom render method. Note how it imports the createApp method from the bundler Vue build, as that build includes the Vue template compiler.

import "@protonemedia/laravel-splade/dist/style.css";
import { createApp } from "vue/dist/vue.esm-bundler.js";
import { renderSpladeApp, SpladePlugin } from '@protonemedia/laravel-splade'
const el = document.getElementById('app')
render: renderSpladeApp({ el })

As you can see at the top, there's also a default stylesheet to support the Choices.js, FilePond, and Flatpickr integrations of the Form Components. Though you probably want to import this default stylesheet into your main JavaScript file, it's completely optional.

In your Blade root layout, you may use the @splade directive inside the body, and the @spladeHead directive inside the head. This will render the title and meta tags, and the default <div id="app"></div> element where the Vue app will be mounted.

<body class="antialiased">

Here's an example of a sensible root layout:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="{{ str_replace('_', '-', app()->getLocale()) }}">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
<meta name="csrf-token" content="{{ csrf_token() }}">
<body class="font-sans antialiased">

Splade assumes the path of this file is resources/views/root.blade.php. If you want to change it, you may call the setRootView method on the Splade facade, for example, in the AppServiceProvider class:
