Helper Method to Generate Absolute Asset URLs to Vite Assets cover image

arrow_back Helper Method to Generate Absolute Asset URLs to Vite Assets

A super simple Laravel helper to fill the void that Laravel Mix left. Mix had a helper, aptly named mix() that would return an absolute URL to the mixed resource. With the introduction of Vite (as of Laravel 9.19), there is no equivalent for Vite, at least, until now.

This was originally submitted as a PR to the core Laravel framework but unfortunately wasn’t deemed as a necessary addition.


You can install this package via composer by running this command:

composer require motomedialab/laravel-vite-helper


The usage for this helper is extremely simple, and directly replaces Laravel’s mix() helper.

// will return the absolute compiled asset path for 'resources/css/app.css'

// will return the absolute compiled asset path for
// 'resources/css/app.css' with custom build directory 'dist'
vite('resources/css/app.css', 'dist');

// the third argument enforces a relative path to be returned
vite('resources/css/app.css', 'build', true);
