Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require asdh/save-model

You can publish the config file with:

php artisan save-model:publish

or

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Asdh\SaveModel\SaveModelServiceProvider"

This is the contents of the published config file:

// config/save_model.php

return [
    /**
     * The directory name where the files should be stored
     * This can be changed via 'saveableFields' method on model
     */
    'file_upload_directory' => 'files',
];

Usage

// In controller

use Asdh\SaveModel\SaveModel;

SaveModel::new(
    new User,
    $request->only(['name', 'email', 'password', 'image'])
)->execute();

// OR

(new SaveModel(
    new User,
    $request->only(['name', 'email', 'password', 'image'])
)->execute();

You just do this and a new user will be created and saved to the 'users' table. The password will be automatically hashed, and uploading of the image will also be automatically handled.

To update a model, you just have to pass the model that you want to update.

// In controller

use Asdh\SaveModel\SaveModel;

$user = User::find(1);

SaveModel::new(
    $user,
    $request->only(['name', 'email'])
)->execute();

Only name and email will be updated and no other columns will be touched.

For this to work, you need to do these things:

Go to User model class or any other model class and add CanBeSavedContract class to it. In this example, I will use User model.

use Asdh\SaveModel\Contracts\CanBeSavedContract;

class User extends Authenticatable implements CanBeSavedContract
{

}

After adding this, you need to add saveableFields method to the User model and map every columns of the users table like so:

use Asdh\SaveModel\Contracts\CanBeSavedContract;
use Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\DatetimeField;
use Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\FileField;
use Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\PasswordField;
use Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\StringField;

class User extends Authenticatable implements CanBeSavedContract
{
    public function saveableFields(): array
    {
        return [
            'name' => StringField::new(),
            'email' => StringField::new(),
            'email_verified_at' => DatetimeField::new(),
            'password' => PasswordField::new(),
            'image' => FileField::new(),
        ];
    }
}

After doing this you are good to go. In the controller, you just need to get the data and use the SaveModel class

use Asdh\SaveModel\SaveModel;

SaveModel::new(
    new User,
    $request->only(['name', 'email', 'password', 'image'])
)->execute();

// OR

(new SaveModel(
    new User,
    $request->only(['name', 'email', 'password', 'image'])
)->execute();

The files will be uploaded using the default Laravel's filesystem. Which means that you can directly configure to upload the files directly to the S3 as well or any other that Laravel supports.

Also, the files will be uploaded to the files directory by default. You can change that globally by changing the value of file_upload_directory on the save_model.php configuration file.

You can also change it per model like so:

// app/Models/User.php

public function saveableFields(): array
{
    return [
        'image' => FileField::new()->setDirectory('images'),
    ];
}

It will now store the image of the user to the images directory and for every other Models, it will use from the save_model.php config file.

You can also, choose the Laravel Filesystem's disk per model like so:

// app/Models/User.php

public function saveableFields(): array
{
    return [
        'image' => FileField::new()
            ->setDirectory('images')
            ->setDisk('s3'),
    ];
}

By default random name will be generated for the uploaded files, but you can change that also. You just have to pass closure on the setFileName method and you will get access to the uploaded file there. And whatever you return from here will be saved to the database as the file name.

This example shows how to return the original file name.

// app/Models/User.php

use Illuminate\Http\UploadedFile;

public function saveableFields(): array
{
    return [
        'image' => FileField::new()
            ->setDirectory('images')
            ->setFileName(function (UploadedFile $uploadedFile) {
                return $uploadedFile->getClientOriginalName();
            }),
    ];
}

If you want to upload the file as the original name then you can do this:

// app/Models/User.php

use Illuminate\Http\UploadedFile;

public function saveableFields(): array
{
    return [
        'image' => FileField::new()
            ->setDirectory('images')
            ->uploadAsOriginalName(),
    ];
}

One thing to keep in mind that the setFileName method will take precedence over uploadAsOriginalName if both methods are being used.

Not only this, the deletion of the file will also be automatically handled when updating a model. By default, when a model is updated, the old file will be automatically deleted if a new file is being uploaded. If you don't want the old images to be deleted then you can chain dontDeleteOldFileOnUpdate method.

// app/Models/User.php

use Illuminate\Http\UploadedFile;

public function saveableFields(): array
{
    return [
        'image' => FileField::new()
            ->setDirectory('images')
            ->dontDeleteOldFileOnUpdate(),
    ];
}

Available Fields

Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\StringField::class
Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\IntegerField::class
Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\DatetimeField::class
Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\DateField::class
Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\TimeField::class
Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\PasswordField::class
Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\FileField::class
Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\BooleanField::class

Other field will be added in the future and I am open to pull requests.

Creating your own model field class

You can create your own field class as well. To create one, you need to run an artisan command

php artisan make:field BooleanField

This will create a BooleanField class inside App\ModelFields directory and it will look like this:

<?php

namespace App\ModelFields;

use Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\Field;

class BooleanField extends Field
{
    public function execute(): mixed
    {
        // Perform your logic and return the value...

        // return strtoupper($this->value)
    }
}

It is not necessary that BooleanField class must be inside App\ModelFields directory. You can place it wherever you like.

You will have access to the data passed from the controller as $this->value. Then you can do whatever you want to do and return the value that you want to save in the database. In above case, we can do it like so:

<?php

namespace App\ModelFields;

use Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\Field;

class BooleanField extends Field
{
    public function execute(): mixed
    {
        return in_array($this->value, [1, '1', true, 'true', 'on', 'yes']);
    }
}

If the input is any one of these, then we will consider it to be true and for every one of these values, we will save true (which will be 1 when stored in database) to the database.

Then you can easily use your own field in the model's saveableFields method. You can now use this BooleanField along with other fields like this:

use Asdh\SaveModel\Contracts\CanBeSavedContract;
use Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\DatetimeField;
use Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\FileField;
use Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\PasswordField;
use Asdh\SaveModel\Fields\StringField;
use App\ModelFields\BooleanField;

class User extends Authenticatable implements CanBeSavedContract
{
    public function saveableFields(): array
    {
        return [
            'name' => StringField::new(),
            'email' => StringField::new(),
            'email_verified_at' => DatetimeField::new(),
            'password' => PasswordField::new(),
            'image' => FileField::new(),
            'is_admin' => Boolean::new(),
        ];
    }
}

Make sure you add the namespace correctly as shown above.
