A simple package to generate Eloquent Model Keys
Laravel Key Factory is a simple package to generate Eloquent Model Keys for your models easily. This is something I do quite often, instead of using UUID's which can be quite unfriendly to look at, I use Model keys which are unique strings generated for each model.
You can install the package via composer:
composer require juststeveking/laravel-key-factory
You can publish and run the migrations with:
You can publish the config file with:
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="JustSteveKing\KeyFactory\KeyFactoryServiceProvider" --tag="key-factory-config"
This is the contents of the published config file:
return [ 'key' => [ 'length' => 20, ] ];
This is a very simple to use package. There are two available methods to generate the key:
$key = \JustSteveKing\KeyFactory\KeyFactory::generate( prefix: 'test', // what you want to prefix your keys with. length: 20, // optional - the default of 20 is set in the config. );
$key = \Illuminate\Support\Str::key( prefix: 'test', // what you want to prefix your keys with. length: 20, // optional - the default of 20 is set in the config. );
There is an eloquent model trait available to use called
HasKey which will:
When you are creating an eloquent model, the trait will be booted. It will get the first 3 characters of the Model name, force them to lowercase and append a "_" and use this as the prefix for the Key Factory

Currently this isn't a configured option as it is easy to override or implement yourself.
