This package allows you to make multiple diagrams of your Eloquent models and their relations.
It will help building them providing drag and drop relations, forms to create and edit your models and many options like
adding resource controllers, form requests and running migrations by the click of a button or (configurable) automatically.
It also will give you insights in the migrations you ran and the ones specified in your migrations folder.

Schematics Example

Its aim is to help you (and your team) get more grip on the models from a code perspective,
the status of your migrations and build / edit them faster.


Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require mtolhuys/laravel-schematics

Run php artisan schematics:install which will do the route caching, create vendor assets in your public folder and
setup the configuration file.

Or...

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Mtolhuys\LaravelSchematics\LaravelSchematicsServiceProvider"

and visit {your-app}/schematics

Make sure the routes are cached!


Usage

Starting out / Searching

If you already have a lot of models I recommend you use the search bar to narrow down the diagrams into
specific sections f.e:

Schematics Example

These searches are saved across your diagrams.

Relations

When you drag and drop the arrow to another model you'll get a form to specify the relation you want to build f.e:

Clicking on them will show something like:

Relation Example

Building / Editing Models

To specify the types of your columns I've chosen the form request rule syntax.
To see what's available you can click the little help icon below the fields in the model form:

Fields Explanation

The package is flexible enough to differentiate between renaming and changing column types.
It will create migrations according the need to change or create a table and setup your $fillables.
I do strongly suggest you check the migrations before running them if the stakes are high.

You don't have to worry about existing migrations though, the package will only look for migrations it created itself
by checking the value of the @tag in the comment it adds. It looks like this:

/**

 *
 * WARNING: removing @tag value will disable automated removal
 *
 * @package Laravel-schematics
 * @author  Maarten Tolhuijs <[email protected]>
 * @url     https://github.com/mtolhuys/laravel-schematics
 * @tag     laravel-schematics-foobar-model
