Geo Sorter for Laravel

Postcode distance sorting package for Laravel Collections.

UNITED KINGDOM POSTCODES ONLY

🚀 Quick Start

Installation

Require the package in the composer.json of your project.

composer require laralabs/geo-sorter

Publish the configuration file.

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=geosorter-config

Edit the configuration file and set your desired settings. If you want to use a custom database table name, set it here and cache your config before moving onto the next step.

Create the postcodes table by running the following command:

php artisan migrate

Once the database table has been created, run the following command to populate it with the latest UK Postcode District data.

php artisan geosorter:update

Usage

A helper function and facade are available, choose your preferred method. The sortByPostcode method accepts three arguments, the third argument being an optional $sort which can be used to override the sort order defined in the config.

Facade:

<?php
$collection = Addresses::all();
$postcode   = 'B61 XYZ';

$collection = GeoSorter::sortByPostcode($collection, $postcode, 'ASC');

Helper:

<?php
$collection = Addresses::all();
$postcode   = 'B61 XYZ';

$collection = geo_sorter()->sortByPostcode($collection, $postcode);

The above code would sort the Addresses collection in distance from the given postcode B61 XYZ.
