Why Storage Class doesn't have a storage() helper function ITS A NEED!! :D

Posted 1 year ago by skeith22

I'm lately creating a project that involves uploading a lot of files and displaying them specially images.

its kinda bothersome that you need to include

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Storage

in almost all of your controllers cause you need the function


for you to display images in your view cause you need to generate the url for it. Instead of using a helper. If we have


we don't need to include

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Storage

we could just use the storage() helper function to generate the url in the views to pull files in the Storage.

It would really be nice and helpful to have a storage() helper function.

I'm referring to generating the url for the file.

If anyone encountered this you guys could just include the

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Storage

in the Controller Class which is being extended by all Controllers
