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.

Installation

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,
    ]
];

Usage

This is a very simple to use package. There are two available methods to generate the key:

Using the Key Factory

$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.
);

Using the Str helper

$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.
);

Eloquent Integration

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

An example:

  • User Model: use_12345678909876543212
  • Project Model: pro_12345678909876543212

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