Model Generator

Laravel 5 model generator for an existing schema.

It plugs into your existing database and generates model class files based on the existing tables.

Installation

composer require ignasbernotas/laravel-model-generator --dev

You’ll only want to use these generators for local development, so you don’t want to update the production providers array in config/app.php. Instead, add the provider in app/Providers/AppServiceProvider.php, like so:

<?php

public function register()
{
    if ($this->app->environment() == 'local') {
        $this->app->register('Iber\Generator\ModelGeneratorProvider');
    }
}

Examples

Table users

SQL

CREATE TABLE `users` (
    `id` INT(10) UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
    `username` VARCHAR(64) NULL DEFAULT NULL,
    `password` VARCHAR(45) NULL DEFAULT NULL,
    `email` VARCHAR(45) NULL DEFAULT NULL,
    `name` VARCHAR(45) NULL DEFAULT NULL,
    PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
)
COLLATE='utf8_general_ci'
ENGINE=InnoDB;

Generated Models/Users.php class

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Users extends Model {

    public $timestamps = false;

    protected $table = 'users';

    protected $fillable = ['username', 'email', 'name'];

    `created_at` TIMESTAMP NOT NULL DEFAULT '0000-00-00 00:00:00',

    PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
)
COLLATE='utf8_general_ci'
ENGINE=InnoDB;
