Convenience Methods

The items provided in the laravel-menu package have some added convenience methods linked to Laravel's url generator.

Spatie\Menu\Laravel\Link

The Link class has three added factory methods, toUrl, toRoute and toAction. The methods require the same parameters as their Laravel helper function counterparts, with a $text parameter squished between as the second one.

Link::toUrl('/', 'Home');
Link::toRoute('contact', 'Contact');
Link::toAction('PageController@about', 'About');

Spatie\Menu\Laravel\Menu

The Menu class has convenience methods for all of the above link factory methods.

Menu::new()
    ->url('/', 'Home')
    ->route('contact', 'Contact')
    ->action('PageController@about', 'About');
