Relationships

With Lift, you can configure all of your Model relationships using Attributes. It works the same way when defining them with methods, so all of them accept the same parameters as the methods.

BelongsTo

use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\BelongsTo;
​
#[BelongsTo(User::class)]
final class Post extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}

BelongsToMany

use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\BelongsToMany;
​
#[BelongsToMany(Role::class)]
final class User extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}
use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\BelongsToMany;
​
#[BelongsToMany(User::class)]
final class Role extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}

HasMany

use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\HasMany;
​
#[HasMany(Post::class)]
final class User extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}

HasManyThrough

use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\HasMany;
use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\HasManyThrough;
​
#[HasMany(User::class)]
#[HasManyThrough(Post::class, User::class)]
final class Country extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}
use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\HasMany;
​
#[HasMany(Post::class)]
final class User extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}
use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\BelongsTo;
​
#[BelongsTo(User::class)]
final class Post extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}

HasOne

use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\HasOne;
​
#[HasOne(Phone::class)]
final class User extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}

HasOneThrough

use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\HasOne;
use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\HasOneThrough;
​
#[HasOneThrough(Manufacturer::class, Computer::class)]
#[HasOne(Computer::class)]
final class Seller extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}
use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\HasOne;
​
#[HasOne(Manufacturer::class)]
final class Computer extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}

MorphMany/MorphTo

use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\MorphMany;
​
#[MorphMany(Image::class, 'imageable')]
final class Post extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}
use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\MorphTo;
​
#[MorphTo('imageable')]
final class Image extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}

MorphOne/MorphTo

use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\MorphOne;
​
#[MorphOne(Image::class, 'imageable')]
final class User extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}
use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\MorphTo;
​
#[MorphTo('imageable')]
final class Image extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}

MorphToMany/MorphedByMany

use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\MorphToMany;
​
#[MorphToMany(Tag::class, 'taggable')]
final class Post extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}
use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\MorphedByMany;
​
#[MorphedByMany(Post::class, 'taggable')]
final class Tag extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}

Customizing the Relationship

All the attributes listed above, except the MorphTo attribute, accept an additional parameter to customize the relationship name.
use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\BelongsTo;
​
#[BelongsTo(User::class, 'author')]
final class Post extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}
​
$post->author; // Will return the User model
After the name parameter, you can pass the same parameters as you would do when defining the relationship using methods, for example, to customize the foreign key.
use WendellAdriel\Lift\Attributes\Relations\BelongsTo;
​
#[BelongsTo(User::class, 'author', 'custom_id', 'id')]
final class Post extends Model
{
use Lift;
// ...
}
