Easily add uuid to your DataObjects

Getting started

Simply add the extension to your DataObject

    - LeKoala\Uuid\UuidExtension

Call UuidExtension::getByUuid(MyDataObject::class, $uuid) to retrieve the record by Uuid. Since that's really ugly, you can also use the HasUuid trait on your classes to return a properly type hinted class.

Usage in templates

In your templates, use UuidSegment to ensure Uuid value is generated on the record. UuidSegment are base62 encoded in order to be shorter and more readable.

Getting readable values

Since Uuid's are stored in binary format for performance reason, you need to call $myObject->dbObject('Uuid')->Nice() to get a readable value.
