The artisan console has one mandatory argument and 3 optional arguments.

  • Mandatory argument
    1. Class name: The class name you want as a repository. Must be a valid identifier.
  • Optional arguments
    1. --dir=dir_name. if specified, the new class will be created on that directory.
    2. --namespace=namespace. if specified, then class will have that namespace.
    3. --model=model. if specified, will lookup using the config file's model_namespace. If found, then will be returned from the implemented model() method. Otherwise, will be left blank.


php artisan make:repository UserRepository
php artisan make:repository UserRepository --namespace=Repository
php artisan make:repository UserRepository --model=User
php artisan make:repository UserRepository --namespace=Repository --model=User


Here, the optional arguments can be used at any position

If the --dir argument is specified, then the directory will be created regarding the current path
