A package for using google datastore as a database driver.

By using this package, you can use query builder and eloquent to access data from datastore.


You can install the package via composer:

composer require arafatkn/laravel-datastore

If you are using Laravel Package Auto-Discovery, you don't need you to manually add the ServiceProvider.

Without auto-discovery:

If you don't use auto-discovery, add the below ServiceProvider to the $providers array in config/app.php file.



  • Data read using query builder (available).
  • Data read using eloquent model (available).
  • Data insert (via query builder, using model soon).
  • Data update (soon).
  • Data delete (available).
  • Cursor Paginate (soon).
  • Relations (soon).


You need to add datastore connection in config/database.php file.

'connections' => [
    'datastore' => [
        'driver' => 'datastore',
        'key_file_path' => env('GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS', 'gcloud-credentials.json'),
        'prefix' => env('DATASTORE_PREFIX', null),

Access using Eloquent Model

You need to extend Arafatkn\LaravelDatastore\Eloquent\Model class instead of laravel's default eloquent model class.



namespace App\Models;

use Arafatkn\LaravelDatastore\Eloquent\Model;

class Project extends Model
    // Your works here

Access using Query Builder


    ->where('project_id', '>', 5)

It will return a collection.

Tested Builder Functions

  • connection
  • table
  • from
  • select (for projection query)
  • kind (same as table)
  • where (Available: = , > , < , >= , <= )
  • limit
  • take
  • skip
  • get
  • simplePaginate
  • paginate (works same as simplePaginate)
  • first
  • delete
  • insert
  • upsert
  • find / lookup
