Installation

  1. To download this package into your laravel project, use the command-line to execute the following command:

    composer require crestapps/laravel-code-generator --dev
    
  2. (You may skip this step when using Laravel >= 5.5) To bootstrap the packages into your project while using command-line only, open the app/Providers/AppServiceProvider.php file in your project. Then, add the following code to the register() method.

    Add the following line to bootstrap laravel-code-generator to the framework.

    if ($this->app->runningInConsole()) {
        $this->app->register('CrestApps\CodeGenerator\CodeGeneratorServiceProvider');
    }
    
  3. Execute the following command from the command-line to publish the package's config and the default template to start generating awesome code.

    php artisan vendor:publish --provider="CrestApps\CodeGenerator\CodeGeneratorServiceProvider" --tag=default
    

A layout is required for the default views! The code generator allows you to create a layout using the command-line. Of course, you can use also your own layout. You'll only need to include CSS bootstrap framework in your layout for the default templates to work properly. Additionally, you can chose to design your own templetes using a different framework or css.

Examples

The following example assumes that we are trying to create a CRUD called AssetCategory with the fields listed below.

  • id
  • name
  • description
  • is_active

Basic example - CRUD with migration

php artisan resource-file:create AssetCategory --fields=id,name,description,is_active

The above command will create a resource-file named asset_categories, and will save it here /resources/laravel-code-generator/sources/asset_categories.json

php artisan create:resources AssetCategory --with-migration

The above command will create a model app/Models/AssetCategory, a controller app/Http/Controllers/AssetCategoriesController, all views, the routes, and migration class!

Basic example using translations for English and Arabic - with migration

php artisan resource-file:create AssetCategory --fields=id,name,description,is_active --translation-for=en,ar

The above command will create resource-file named /resources/laravel-code-generator/sources/asset_categories.json

php artisan create:resources AssetCategory --with-migration

The above command will create a model app/Models/AssetCategory, a controller app/Http/Controllers/AssetCategoriesController, all views, the routes, and migration class!

Basic example with form-request

php artisan resource-file:create AssetCategory --fields=id,name,description,is_active

The above command will create resource-file named /resources/laravel-code-generator/sources/asset_categories.json

php artisan create:resources AssetCategory --with-form-request

The above command will create a model app/Models/AssetCategory, a controller app/Http/Controllers/AssetCategoriesController, all views, the routes, and app/Http/Requests/AssetCategoriesFormRequest class!

Basic example with soft-delete and migration

php artisan resource-file:create AssetCategory --fields=id,name,description,is_active

The above command will create resource-file named /resources/laravel-code-generator/sources/asset_categories.json

php artisan create:resources AssetCategory --with-soft-delete --with-migration

The above command will create a model app/Models/AssetCategory, a controller app/Http/Controllers/AssetCategoriesController, all views, the routes, and migration file!

Creating resources from existing database

php artisan create:resources AssetCategory --table-exists

The above command will create resource-file named /resources/laravel-code-generator/sources/asset_categories.json. It is going to assume that the table name is called "asset_categories" in your database. Note, it assumes your table is plural. If that is not the case, you can use --table-name=some_other_table_name

Then it will create a model app/Models/AssetCategory, a controller app/Http/Controllers/AssetCategoriesController, all views and routes!

You may also create a resource-file from existing database separately using php artisan resource-file:from-database AssetCategory

Creating resources from existing database with translation for English and Arabic

php artisan create:resources AssetCategory --translation-for=en,ar --table-exists

The above command will create resource-file named /resources/laravel-code-generator/sources/asset_categories.json

Then it will create a model app/Models/AssetCategory, a controller app/Http/Controllers/AssetCategoriesController, all views and the routes!

You may also create a resource-file from existing database separately using php artisan resource-file:from-database AssetCategory --translation-for=en,ar

Creating resources from existing database with translation for English and Arabic in two step for better control over the fields!

php artisan resource-file:from-database AssetCategory --translation-for=en,ar

php artisan create:resources AssetCategory

The above command will create resource-file named /resources/laravel-code-generator/sources/asset_categories.json

Then it will create a model app/Models/AssetCategory, a controller app/Http/Controllers/AssetCategoriesController, all views and routes!
