As we all know laravel provides many in-built helper functions in their framework, but many times we need to require our own customized function to use in our project that time we need to create a custom helper function in laravel 10.

Laravel includes a variety of global helper PHP functions like Arrays, paths, strings, URLs, etc. So, you can use these functions as per your requirements.

function dateFormat($date,$format){
    return \Carbon\Carbon::createFromFormat('Y-m-d', $date)->format($format);    

function trimString($string, $repl, $limit) 
  if(strlen($string) > $limit) 
    return substr($string, 0, $limit) . $repl; 
    return $string;

function truncate($string, $length)
    if (strlen($string) > $length) {
        return substr($string, 0, $length - 3) . '...';
    return $string;




Step 2: Add Helper File Path In composer.json File

Add the below code in the composer.json file.

"autoload": {
        "psr-4": {
            "App\\": "app/",
            "Database\\Factories\\": "database/factories/",
            "Database\\Seeders\\": "database/seeders/"
