To read YAML files in Laravel, you can use the Symfony YAML Component. This component provides functionality to parse and dump YAML files. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to use it in your Laravel application:

  1. Install the Symfony YAML component using Composer:
1
composer require symfony/yaml


  1. Once the component is installed, you can use it in your Laravel controller or service class like this:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
use SymfonyComponentYamlYaml;

// Read the YAML file
$data = Yaml::parseFile('/path/to/your/file.yaml');

// You can now access the data from the YAML file
dd($data);


  1. Replace '/path/to/your/file.yaml' with the actual path to your YAML file. You can also use Laravel's base_path() helper function to construct the file path relative to your Laravel application's base directory.
  2. You can now use the $data variable to access the parsed YAML content in your Laravel application.


That's it! You can now read YAML files in Laravel using the Symfony YAML Component.
