Glide is a wonderfully easy on-demand image manipulation library written in PHP. Its straightforward API is exposed via HTTP, similar to cloud image processing services like Imgix and Cloudinary. Glide leverages powerful libraries like Intervention Image (for image handling and manipulation) and Flysystem (for file system abstraction).

Please check the documentation for usage examples.


  • PHP 7.1 or higher
  • October CMS build 420 or higher



php artisan plugin:install Vdlp.Glide

October CMS:

Go to Settings > Updates & Plugins > Install plugins and search for 'Glide'.


To configure this plugin execute the following command:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Vdlp\Glide\ServiceProviders\GlideServiceProvider" --tag="config"

This will create a config/glide.php file in your app where you can modify the configuration.

Modify the environment file by adding the following lines:


Add an url to your disk in the config/filesystem.php to display the images properly, for example:


    'disks' => [

        'local' => [
            'driver' => 'local',
            'root'   => storage_path('app'),
            'url' => 'storage/app/',




Here you can see some basic examples of how to use this plugin. Out of the box, the default configuration used is main.

<img src="{{ 'test.jpg'|thumb() }}" />
<img src="{{ 'test.jpg'|thumb({w: 50, h: 50}) }}" />
