php – How to add custom config file to app/config in Laravel 5?

Questions:

I want to add custom_config.php to app/config directory of my Laravel 5 project, but can’t find any article explaining this process. How is this done?

How to&Answers:

You can easily add a new file to the config folder. This file should return configuration values. Check other config files for reference. Say constants.php is like so

<?php

return array(
    'pagination' => array(
           'items_per_page' => 10
    ),
);

You can now access this config file from anywhere by either using the Config Facade or the config() global function like so

Config::get('constants.pagination.items_per_page');

or

config('constants.pagination.items_per_page');

i.e.

config('file_name.variable_name');

Answer:

I don’t know how many times one might need to create a config file, but here you have an Artisan command for it: https://gist.github.com/jotaelesalinas/eafd831048ca5fb5fba970afd1921f70
