lift:migration

⚠️ This is an experimental feature, keep that in mind when using it
The lift:migration command allows you to generate a migration file based on your models. By default, it uses the App\Models namespace, but you can change it using the --namespace option.
All the created migration files will be placed inside the database/migrations folder.

Examples:

The command below will generate a migration file for the App\Models\User model.
php artisan lift:migration User
The command below will generate a migration file for the App\Models\Auth\User model.
php artisan lift:migration Auth\User
The command below will generate a migration file for the App\Custom\Models\User model.
php artisan lift:migration User --namespace=App\Custom\Models

Create Table Migration

When the table for your model is not yet created in the database, the lift:migration command will generate a migration file to create the table.
// User.php
final class User extends Model
{
use Lift, SoftDeletes;
public int $id;
public string $name;
public string $email;
public string $password;
public CarbonImmutable $created_at;
public DateTime $updated_at;
public ?bool $active;
public $test;
}
// Migration file generated
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
return new class extends Migration
{
/**
* Run the migrations.
*/
public function up(): void
{
Schema::create('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
$table->id();
$table->string('name');
$table->string('email');
$table->string('password');
$table->boolean('active')->nullable();
$table->string('test');
$table->timestamps();
$table->softDeletes();
});
}
/**
* Reverse the migrations.
*/
public function down(): void
{
Schema::dropIfExists('users');
}
};

Update Table Migration

When the table for your model is already created in the database, the lift:migration command will generate a migration file to update the table based on the differences between the model and the database table.
// User.php
final class User extends Model
{
use Lift, SoftDeletes;
public int $id;
public string $name;
public string $username;
public string $email;
public string $password;
public ?bool $active;
}
// Migration file generated
<?php
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
return new class extends Migration
{
/**
* Run the migrations.
*/
public function up(): void
{
Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
$table->string('username')->after('name');
$table->dropColumn('created_at');
$table->dropColumn('updated_at');
$table->dropColumn('test');
});
}
/**
* Reverse the migrations.
*/
public function down(): void
{
// Nothing to do here
}
};
