  • polymorphic relationships are used, which makes it possible to attach documents to any other entity
  • once documents are attached to an entity, you should not be able to delete the entity without deciding what you want to do with the associated documents. This is configurable in the options, see below


  1. add use Documentable in the Model that needs documents and import the trait. Then you'll have access to the $model->documents relationship

  2. because users upload documents you can add use Documents to the User model. This trait will set the relationship between users and the documents that they create

  3. import the Documents vue component and use it in your pages/components, see the front end implementation docs for the available options


Since this package is using image processing libraries and these underlying libraries may use a lot of memory, especially if the processed files are large (for example, for an 8MB image file, more than 128MB of memory might be used ), make sure to configure php accordingly and/or do ini_set(‘memory_limit’, ‘256M’);

Failure to do so may result in silent errors if allotted memory is insufficient.


The config/enso/documents.php configuration file, lets you customize the following:

  • deletableTimeLimit - the time limit for deleting an uploaded document, in seconds. Default is 60 * 60 (1 hour)

  • linkExpiration, - the time limit for document share link, in seconds. Default is 60 * 60 * 24 (1 day)

  • imageWidth - the image width, in pixels, used when resizing bigger picture files. Default is 2048

  • imageHeight - the image height, in pixels, used when resizing bigger picture files. Default is 2048

  • onDelete, string, option that manages the case when the commentable entity is deleted and it has attached addresses. Valid options are cascade, restrict | default is cascade

    With the cascade option, when a commentable model is deleted, the comments attached to it are also deleted. With the restrict option, when attempting to delete a commentable model with attached comments, an exception is thrown.

  • loggableMorph, the list of entities using the commentable functionality, each mapped to its respective loggable attribute For example:

    'commentable' => [
        Company::class => 'name',

    This configuration is used for activity logging.


  • php artisan vendor:publish --tag=documents-config - configuration file
  • php artisan vendor:publish --tag=enso-config - a common alias for when wanting to update the config, once a newer version is released, usually used with the --force flag
