Declaring a variable in blade php (LARAVEL UPDATED)

Hi everyone,

I'm fairly new to Laravel and I'm currently working on a blade template. I'm trying to declare a variable within the blade template itself, but I'm not sure of the correct syntax to use.

I understand that in regular PHP, we would simply use the "$" sign followed by the variable name. However, I'm not sure if the same syntax applies within the blade template.

Could someone please help me with the correct syntax to declare a variable within a blade template? Any guidance or examples would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hey there,

I understand your query as I also had a similar question when I first started using Laravel's blade templates. Declaring a variable within a blade template is straightforward. You can accomplish this by using the "@" symbol followed by the keyword "php" and enclosing your code within "@php" and "@endphp" tags.

Here's an example:

$message = "Hello, Laravel!";

Once you've declared the variable, you can utilize it within the blade template using the "{{$message}}" syntax. You can also perform operations or concatenate the variable with other strings, just like in regular PHP.

Remember, the blade template engine transforms your code into regular PHP code during compilation, allowing you to use PHP syntax within the template.

Feel free to ask if you have any further questions. Cheers!


Hey there,

I can definitely help you with declaring a variable in a Laravel blade template. In Laravel's blade, you can declare a variable using the "@" symbol followed by the "php" keyword. Inside the "php" block, you can use the regular PHP syntax to declare your variables.

For example, let's say you want to declare a variable called "name" and assign it the value "John". You can do it like this:

$name = "John";

After declaring the variable, you can use it throughout your blade template by simply using "{{$name}}" to display its value or perform any other operations.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions or need further assistance.
