In Laravel, you can store a value of variables in several ways depending on your requirements:

  1. Session: You can store variables in the session and retrieve them across multiple requests. To store a variable in the session, you can use the session() helper function like this:
1
2
// Store a value in the session
session(['key' => 'value']);


To retrieve the value from the session, you can use the session() helper function again:

1
2
// Retrieve a value from the session
$value = session('key');


  1. Config: You can store variables in the configuration files of your application. To store a variable in the configuration, you can use the config() helper function like this:
1
2
// Store a value in the configuration
config(['key' => 'value']);


To retrieve the value from the configuration, you can use the config() helper function again:

1
2
// Retrieve a value from the configuration
$value = config('key');


  1. Environment variables: You can store sensitive or environment-specific variables in the .env file of your Laravel application. To access these variables, you can use the env() helper function like this:
1
2
// Retrieve a value from the environment
$value = env('KEY');


  1. Database: You can store variables in the database by creating a model and a corresponding table. You can then save and retrieve values from the database using Eloquent models.


These are just a few ways to store variables in Laravel. Choose the one that best fits your needs and application requirements.
