How to add Helper file in Laravel?

To create custom helpers.php file in laravel we need to edit composer.json file in laravel.

In autoload object add the following file array:-

"autoload": {
    "files": [

composer dump-autoload

This will create a helpers.php file in your app folder. Which will be accessed by all controllers and view files.

if (! function_exists('your_custom_helper')) {
function your_custom_helper($string) {
