The recommended way to install this is through composer:
composer require oscarafdev/migrations-generator --dev
In Laravel 5.5+ the service providers will automatically get registered.
To generate migrations from a database, you need to have your database setup in Laravel's Config.
php artisan migrate:generate to create migrations for all the tables, or you can specify the tables you wish to generate using
php artisan migrate:generate table1,table2,table3,table4,table5. You can also ignore tables with
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 help migrate:generate for a list of options.
