Laravel Currency is a package that provides current and historical exchange rates for currency and cryptocurrencies. The package leverages the exchangerate.host API for exchange rate data, and has a clean API for getting data:
use AmrShawky\Currency\Facade\Currency; // Get the current USD -> EUR exchange rate Currency::convert() ->from('USD') ->to('EUR') ->get(); // Historical exchange rate data Currency::convert() ->from('USD') ->to('EUR') ->date('2019-08-01') ->get(); // Get all of the latest rates Currency::rates() ->latest() ->get(); // A more complete example, getting historical rates Currency::rates() ->historical('2020-01-01') ->symbols(['USD', 'EUR', 'CZK']) ->base('GBP') ->amount(5.66) ->round(2) ->source('ecb') ->get();
