Laravel Databale

For easy date localization

If you have trouble working with localized date formats used in combination with translations then this package might be for you. It simply provides a trait that you can add to your models which use https://github.com/jenssegers/date to provide localized date outputs.



Install the package

composer require flobbos/laravel-datable

That's it. Nothing else to do at this point.


Add it to the model

    namespace App;

    use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
    use Flobbos\Datable;

    class Event extends Model {

        use Datable\Datable;

        protected $dates = [


This is all you need to do to make it work. You won't notice a difference anywhere except when you're pulling formats like this:

    $your_model->starts_on->format('d. F Y');

The output will then have the localized month name instead of the default English.
