Download the PHP package mll-lab/laravel-graphql-playground without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package mll-lab/laravel-graphql-playground. It is possible to download/install these versions without Composer. Possible dependencies are resolved automatically.


After the download, you have to make one include require_once('vendor/autoload.php');. After that you have to import the classes with use statements.

If you use only one package a project is not needed. But if you use more then one package, without a project it is not possible to import the classes with use statements.

In general, it is recommended to use always a project to download your libraries. In an application normally there is more than one library needed.
Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.
Please rate this library. Is it a good library?

Laravel GraphQL Playground


This project is deprecated in favor of

Easily integrate GraphQL Playground into your Laravel projects.

GitHub license Packagist Packagist

Please note: This is not a GraphQL Server implementation, only a UI for testing and exploring your schema. For the server component we recommend nuwave/lighthouse.


composer require mll-lab/laravel-graphql-playground

If you are using Lumen, register the service provider in bootstrap/app.php


By default, the playground is reachable at /graphql-playground and assumes a running GraphQL endpoint at /graphql.

To change the defaults, publish the configuration with the following command:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=graphql-playground-config

You will find the configuration file at config/graphql-playground.php.


If you are using Lumen, copy it into that location manually and load the configuration in your boostrap/app.php:

HTTPS behind proxy

If your application sits behind a proxy which resolves https, the generated URL for the endpoint might not use https://, thus causing the Playground to not work by default. In order to solve this, configure your TrustProxies middleware to contain \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Request::HEADER_X_FORWARDED_FOR in $headers.


To customize the Playground even further, publish the view:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=graphql-playground-view

You can use that for all kinds of customization.

Change settings of the playground instance

Add extra settings in the call to GraphQLPlayground.init in the published view:

Configure session authentication

Session based authentication can be used with Laravel Sanctum. If you use GraphQL through sessions and CSRF, add the following to the <head> in the published view:

Modify the Playground config:

Make sure your route includes the web middleware group in config/graphql-playground.php:

Local assets

If you want to serve the assets from your own server, you can download them with the command

php artisan graphql-playground:download-assets

This puts the necessary CSS, JS and Favicon into your public directory. If you have the assets downloaded, they will be used instead of the online version from the CDN.


If you do not want to enable the GraphQL playground in production, you can disable it in the config file. The easiest way is to set the environment variable GRAPHQL_PLAYGROUND_ENABLED=false.

If you want to protect the route to the GraphQL playground, you can add custom middleware in the config file.
