Custom Facade in Laravel?

In Laravel world, a facade is a class that provides access to an object from the container. Laravel “facades” serve as “static proxies” to underlying classes in the service container, providing the benefit of expressive syntax while maintaining more testability and flexibility than traditional static methods.

When you make a call to a Facade, the Facade resolves the underlying class out of the Laravel IoC container and calls the intended method on the instance.

Below are the steps to create a facade on laravel 5.2
