How to check Laravel Blade View Syntax using artisan?

Created August 26, 2020


The Laravel community has been growing exponentially, and there are a lot of fantastic packages out there. I recently came across a Laravel package that provides an artisan command to check the syntax of your blade templates.

In this tutorial, I will show you how to use the Laravel Blade Linter package to check your blade views syntax!


Before getting started, you need to have a Laravel project up and running.

composer require magentron/laravel-blade-lint


Once you have the package installed, in order to test your Blade syntax, you need to run the following command:

php artisan blade:lint

If you don't have any errors, you would see the following output:

All Blade templates OK!

On another note, if there are any issues anywhere in your blade files, you would get an error like this one:

PHP Parse error:  syntax error, unexpected ':', expecting '(' in /var/www/html/resources/views/welcome.blade.php on line 103
Found 1 errors in Blade templates!

In my case, it tells me that I have a syntax error on line 103 in my welcome.blade.php file.

If you don't want to check all of your views, you can specify the path to a specific directory:

php artisan blade:lint resources/views/blog


The Laravel Blade Linter is a great package that can help you avoid errors before pushing your code to production!
