To generate migrations from a database, you need to have your database setup in Laravel's config (
To create migrations for all the tables, run:
php artisan migrate:generate
You can specify the tables you wish to generate using:
php artisan migrate:generate --tables="table1,table2,table3,table4,table5"
You can also ignore tables with:
php artisan migrate:generate --ignore="table3,table4,table5"
Laravel Migrations Generator will first generate all the tables, columns and indexes, and afterwards setup all the foreign key constraints.
So make sure you include all the tables listed in the foreign keys so that they are present when the foreign keys are created.
You can also specify the connection name if you are not using your default connection with:
php artisan migrate:generate --connection="connection_name"
By default, Generator will generate multiple migration files for each table.
You can squash all migrations into a single file with:
php artisan migrate:generate --squash
php artisan help migrate:generate for a list of options.
