Code snippet that can be used to check is view exists in Laravel 7.

You can check if View file exists before actually loading it.

if (view()->exists('custom.page')) {

// Load the view



You can even load an array of views and only the first existing will be actually loaded.

return view()->first(['custom.dashboard', 'dashboard'], $data);


Example how to render dynamic views:


class CategoryController extends Controller
    public function show($slug)
        $category = Category::with('posts')->where('slug', $slug)->firstOrFail();

        if (view()->exists('category.custom.'.$category->slug)) {
            $view = 'category.custom.'.$category->slug;
        } else {
            $view = 'category.show';

        return view($view, [
            'category' => $category,
