$ php artisan scout:index books
// Create an index and give the primary-key
$ php artisan scout:index books --key book_id

Add document

<?php

use Laravel\Scout\Searchable;

class Book extends Model
{
    use Searchable;
}
<?php

class BookController extends Controller
{
    public function store()
    {
        $book = new Book();
        $book->title = 'Pride and Prejudice';
        ...
        $book->save();
    }
}

You can also import all your table to meilisearch by using the artisan command:

$ php artisan scout:import "App\Book"

Search in index

class BookController extends Controller
{
    public function search()
    {
        // MeiliSearch is typo-tolerant:
        Book::search('harry pottre')->get();
        // Or if you want to get the result from meilisearch:
        Book::search('harry pottre')->raw();
    }
}

Delete documents

class BookController extends Controller
{
    public function destroy($id)
    {
        // Delete one document
        Book::find($id)->delete();
        // Delete several documents
        Book::destroy([1, 42]);
        // Delete all documents /!\
        Book::query()->delete();
    }
}

or you can use the artisan command to delete all documents from an index:

$ php artisan scout:flush "App\Book"

Delete an index

$ php artisan scout:index -d books
