⚠️ 07/08/2022 This project has officially been abandoned

Thank you everyone for downloading Wagonwheel, however I am going to be formally abandoning the project.


This is was a collaborative project with Ryan Chandler. Please consider supporting him for the hard work he put into this package!

Help support the maintenance of this package by buying me a coffee.


Offer an online version of your Laravel emails to users.

Latest Stable Version Total Downloads License

  • Uses Laravel's built-in temporary signed URLs to create the URL for the online version. This means it's secured by your app's encryption key, as well as making it difficult to guess.

  • Highly customisable.

  • Easy to install.

  • Supports Laravel 8


  1. Install Wagonwheel using composer with the command below:
composer require sammyjo20/wagonwheel
  1. Publish the migrations
php artisan vendor:publish --tag=wagonwheel-migrations
  1. Run the migrations
php artisan migrate
  1. Add the "SaveForOnlineViewing" trait to any of your Mailables.
use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;
use Illuminate\Mail\Mailable;
use Illuminate\Queue\SerializesModels;
use Sammyjo20\Wagonwheel\Concerns\SaveForOnlineViewing;

class BookingConfirmed extends Mailable
    use Queueable, SerializesModels, SaveForOnlineViewing;
     * Build the message.
     * @return $this
    public function build()
        return $this->subject('Booking Confirmed ?')


If you would like to customise how Wagonwheel works. Run the following command to publish Wagonwheel's configuration file.

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=wagonwheel-config

component_placement - This configuration variable defines if the banner should be rendered at the start of the email content or at the end of the email content. The available values are start and end.

message_expires_in_days - This configuration variable defines how long Wagonwheel should keep the online version of an email in days. If you would like the online version of your emails to never expire, set this to 0. The default is 30 days.


If you would like to customise how the banner looks inside the email, just publish Wagonwheel's views with the following command.

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=wagonwheel-views


Run all tests

composer test

Run a specific test

composer test-f [name of test method]
