Get Laravel 5.2.x database for your non laravel projects. Built on top of illuminate/database to provide migration, seeding and artisan support
Provides full laravel database functionality for your non laravel projects adds Migration, Seeding and Artisan support to Illuminate Database.
Laravel is a web application framework with expressive, elegant syntax. We extracted the database functionality from it and made it available for other frameworks
The Illuminate Database component is a full database toolkit for PHP, providing an expressive query builder, ActiveRecord style ORM, and schema builder. It currently supports MySQL, Postgres, SQL Server, and SQLite. We combined it with Illuminate FileSystem and Illuminate Console to make Artisan work with database related commands.
Laravel Database utilizes Composer to manage its dependencies. First, download a copy of the
composer.phar. Once you have the PHAR archive, you can either keep it in your local project directory or move to
usr/local/bin to use it globally on your system. On Windows, you can use the Composer Windows installer.
Install Laravel Database by issuing the Composer create-project command in your terminal:
composer create-project laravel/database --prefer-dist
From your public
index.php include the
bootstrap folder this internally uses composer autoloader.
This enables lazy loading of all db related classes. Only when you call one of the DB related class, database engine is initialized.
Even when using version
5.2.* the folder structure will be the same as
