README

Latest Stable Version Total Downloads License

Create new web projects really fast. By giving Pipe Dream a minimum of input in form of a sketch/entity list it will predict your application schema and feed it into a set of pipes. These pipes will generate all the files needed to get started really quick.

Installation

composer require --dev pipe-dream/laravel

Thats it, now open your browser and go to /pipe-dream and start designing.

Usage

If you havent already, watch the 2 minute video.

  • List your models and tables in the sketch window. Note the schema is created in real-time and is being displayed on the right side of the screen.

  • Here are some pointers on the sketch syntax
// use PascalCase for models
Garage
location
capacity

// Separate your entities into chunks
Car
color
user_id // foreign key

// use snake_case model1_model2 to setup a ManyToMany relationship
car_garage 

// use button to add a default user system
User 
name
email
email_verified_at
password
remember_token

// use snake_case to create a table
password_resets

Development roadmap

This package is still very much in development. Below is a rough plan for the future.

Alpha ( < v0.1.0 )

  • The main goal of the alpha is to act as a proof of concept specifically for Laravel applications.
  • Bug fixes will continiue until the alpha is stable.
  • New features will be added only if the work required is reasonable.
  • Complex new features or non critical bug fixes might be postponed to the Beta version.

Beta ( v0.1.0 )

  • Most of the Javascript will be extracted to its own repository ( pipe-dream/core ) in order to easily enable support for multiple FileFactories in separate repos (Maybe ExpressFileFactory, DjangoFileFactory or others). This repo (pipe-dream/laravel) will then extend that core with logic, rules, data etc specific only for Laravel.
  • Backend and frontend interfaces/API specifications are supplied to make it clear what other implementations need to conform to.

Version 1 ( v1.0.0 )

  • When the beta is stable we will bump it up to v1.0.0
