A Package for easily adding UUID's to Eloquent Models supporting Laravel 5.1, 5.2, and 5.3


To use UUID in an Eloquent Model install the package with:

composer require eig/eloquent-uuid

Then in your Model instead of extending Model extend EloquentUUID like so:


namespace App;

use eig\EloquentUUID\EloquentUUID;

class UUIDModel extends EloquentUUID


Then in your migrations make sure you set id to string or uuid like this:

public function up()
        Schema::create('client_models', function (Blueprint $table) {

User UUID Model

For Laravel 5.3+, the standard user model that comes with the framework extends Authenticatble for the new multi-auth system. To add in UUID's to the user model extend eig\EloquentUUID\UUIDUser which will add in the UUID to the user while still extending Laravel's Authenticatable class. The migration schema changes for extending EloquentUUID are the same for extending from UUIDUser.

UUID Trait

As of version 1.1.0, EloquentUUID now has a trait named UUID in the namespace eig\EloquentUUID\Traits\UUID, that you can use to compose a UUID class. The trait implements a UUID assignment in a __constructor() method. The migration schema changes for extending EloquentUUID are the same for using the UUID trait.
