To properly read a file in Laravel, you can use the built-in Storage facade which provides a simple way to work with files in Laravel. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to read a file in Laravel:

  1. Import the Storage facade at the top of your file:
1
use IlluminateSupportFacadesStorage;


  1. Use the Storage::get method to read the contents of a file. You need to provide the path to the file you want to read as an argument. For example, to read the contents of a file named example.txt located in the storage/app/public directory, you can do the following:
1
$fileContent = Storage::get('public/example.txt');


  1. You can then use the $fileContent variable to access the contents of the file. For example, you can output the contents of the file to the browser:
1
echo $fileContent;


  1. Don’t forget to import the Storage facade at the top of your file before using it:
1
use IlluminateSupportFacadesStorage;


That’s it! You’ve successfully read a file in Laravel using the Storage facade. Make sure you have the necessary permissions to read the file you are trying to access.
