CRUD Builder

To use the CRUD builder you need to run the following command:

php artisan crudmaker:new Post --api --ui=bootstrap --migration --schema="id:increments,name:string,author:string" --relationships="belongsToMany|\App\Models\Tag|tags"

You can use the following options for the above command:

php artisan crudmaker:new ModelName
{--api} # if you want to generate REST api routes, controllers and middleware
{--ui=bootstrap|semantic} # css style
{--serviceOnly} # if you only want service classes generated
{--withFacade} # fuck knows
{--withoutViews}  # don't generate view files
{--migration} # generate a migration script
{--schema} # specify the schema data i.e. db columns
{--relationships} # generate relationships

Using GraphQL

Use this article as a guide for setting up and using GraphQL as an API service


Laravel configuration and app settings are cached in memory by default. You would near to clear the cache if you have made changes to the config files, expecially the .env file. To clear the cache you can run the following commands:

Clear config cache: php artisan config:clear

Clear general cache: php artisan cache:clear

Clear config cache and generate new cache file: php artisan config:cache

If you are using php artisan serve to run your application then you'll need to restart it if you've made changes in any of the cached config files.
