Scaffold Laravel Bundle
Easily create scaffolds to manage your database.
Install using the Artisan CLI:
php artisan bundle:install scaffold php artisan bundle:publish
Then, place the bundle's name in your application/bundles.php file:
<?php return array( 'scaffold', );
Don't forget that each time you generate a scaffold, you will need to add the Controller in your routes. Or, simply use this:
A Few Examples
Creating a full Blog... in seconds!
Say you want to make a blog that contains posts that are posted by users. You could manually code all of that, or you could just run:
$ php artisan scaffold::make blog.comment content:text belongs_to:blog.post,user timestamps $ php artisan migrate $ php artisan scaffold::make blog.post title:string content:text belongs_to:user has_many:blog.comment timestamps $ php artisan migrate $ php artisan scaffold::make user username:string password:string has_many:blog.post,blog.comment $ php artisan migrate
Now isn't that a bit faster?
Dissecting the Blog Example
This is the basic structure to generate a new scaffold:
php artisan scaffold::make <name> <attributes> <relationships> <timestamps>
name: The scaffold's name (always singular). Notice that the scaffold can be
nested by adding a prefix and a period.
attributes: The scaffold's attributess, separated by a space. The
different supported attribute types are: string, integer, float,
boolean, date, timestamp, text, and blob. The general syntax for an
Additionally, you can make a attribute nullable:
Or, you can set a character limit for an attribute:
You can even set a character limit and make an attribute nullable:
relationships: The relationships between this scaffold and other scaffolds,
separated by a space. The different supported relationships are: has_one,
has_one_or_many, belongs_to, has_many, and has_many_and_belongs_to.
The general syntax for a relationship is:
Note that the scaffold is always in its singular form. Additionally, several similar relationships may be defined at the same time using a comma (but no spaces):
It is important to note that the different scaffolds listed within a similar relationship should be ordered by importance. For example, a post is more important than a comment. Additionally, if the scaffold is nested it should be prefixed like so:
timestamps: If included, this will make the scaffold automatically timestamp
when rows are created or updated. If
timestamps is omitted, the scaffold
will not do this.
