'providers' => [
    // ...
    ChristianKuri\LaravelFavorite\FavoriteServiceProvider::class,
];

Models

Your User model should import the Traits/Favoriteability.php trait and use it, that trait allows the user to favorite the models. (see an example below):

use ChristianKuri\LaravelFavorite\Traits\Favoriteability;

class User extends Authenticatable
{
	use Favoriteability;
}

Your models should import the Traits/Favoriteable.php trait and use it, that trait have the methods that you'll use to allow the model be favoriteable. In all the examples I will use the Post model as the model that is 'Favoriteable', thats for example propuses only. (see an example below):

use ChristianKuri\LaravelFavorite\Traits\Favoriteable;

class Post extends Model
{
    use Favoriteable;
}

That's it ... your model is now "favoriteable"! Now the User can favorite models that have the favoriteable trait.

Usage

The models can be favorited with and without an authenticated user (see examples below):

Add to favorites and remove from favorites:

If no param is passed in the favorite method, then the model will asume the auth user.

$post = Post::find(1);
$post->addFavorite(); // auth user added to favorites this post
$post->removeFavorite(); // auth user removed from favorites this post
$post->toggleFavorite(); // auth user toggles the favorite status from this post

If a param is passed in the favorite method, then the model will asume the user with that id.

$post = Post::find(1);
$post->addFavorite(5); // user with that id added to favorites this post
$post->removeFavorite(5); // user with that id removed from favorites this post
$post->toggleFavorite(5); // user with that id toggles the favorite status from this post

The user model can also add to favorites and remove from favrites:

$user = User::first();
$post = Post::first();
$user->addFavorite($post); // The user added to favorites this post
$user->removeFavorite($post); // The user removed from favorites this post
$user->toggleFavorite($post); // The user toggles the favorite status from this post

Return the favorite objects for the user:

A user can return the objects he marked as favorite. You just need to pass the class in the favorite() method in the User model.

$user = Auth::user();
$user->favorite(Post::class); // returns a collection with the Posts the User marked as favorite

Return the favorites count from an object:

You can return the favorites count from an object, you just need to return the favoritesCount attribute from the model

$post = Post::find(1);
$post->favoritesCount; // returns the number of users that have marked as favorite this object.

Return the users who marked this object as favorite

You can return the users who marked this object, you just need to call the favoritedBy() method in the object

$post = Post::find(1);
$post->favoritedBy(); // returns a collection with the Users that marked the post as favorite.

Check if the user already favorited an object

You can check if the Auth user have already favorited an object, you just need to call the isFavorited() method in the object

$post = Post::find(1);
$post->isFavorited(); // returns a boolean with true or false.
