This package gives Eloquent models the ability to manage their friendships. You can easily design a Facebook like Friend System.

Models can:

  • Send Friend Requests
  • Accept Friend Requests
  • Deny Friend Requests
  • Block Another Model
  • Group Friends

Installation

First, install the package through Composer.

composer require hootlex/laravel-friendships

If you are using Laravel < 5.5, you need to add Hootlex\Friendships\FriendshipsServiceProvider to your config/app.php providers array:

Hootlex\Friendships\FriendshipsServiceProvider::class,

Publish config and migrations

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Hootlex\Friendships\FriendshipsServiceProvider"

Configure the published config in

config\friendships.php

Finally, migrate the database

php artisan migrate

Setup a Model

use Hootlex\Friendships\Traits\Friendable;
class User extends Model
{
    use Friendable;
    ...
}

Friends

To get a collection of friend models (ex. User) use the following methods:

Get Friends

$user->getFriends();

Get Friends Paginated

$user->getFriends($perPage = 20);

Get Friends of Friends

$user->getFriendsOfFriends($perPage = 20);

Collection of Friends in specific group paginated:

$user->getFriends($perPage = 20, $group_name);

Get mutual Friends with another user

$user->getMutualFriends($otherUser, $perPage = 20);

Friend groups

The friend groups are defined in the config/friendships.php file. The package comes with a few default groups. To modify them, or add your own, you need to specify a slug and a key.

// config/friendships.php
...
'groups' => [
    'acquaintances' => 0,
    'close_friends' => 1,
    'family' => 2
]

Since you've configured friend groups, you can group/ungroup friends using the following methods.

Group a Friend

$user->groupFriend($friend, $group_name);

Remove a Friend from family group

$user->ungroupFriend($friend, 'family');

Remove a Friend from all groups

$user->ungroupFriend($friend);

Get the number of Friends in specific group

$user->getFriendsCount($group_name);

To filter friendships by group you can pass a group slug.

$user->getAllFriendships($group_name);
$user->getAcceptedFriendships($group_name);
$user->getPendingFriendships($group_name);
...
