How to Remove a Package in Laravel

When you build a Laravel project, there might be times when you installed a package that you actually don’t need. So, you want to uninstall it. But, how?

Run ‘composer remove package/vendor’ command in your terminal with your package and vendor name. If you’ve published your vendor, you’ll have to delete the published files manually.

For example, I want to uninstall stevebauman/location package, so I run this command and it is uninstalled.

composer remove stevebauman/location

If you’ve successfully uninstalled it, your terminal should look something like this depending on your package.

And since I published that vendor already and it copied location.php to my config folder, I deleted that file too.


That’s it! You’ve successfully installed a Laravel package.
