This package adds state support to models. It combines concepts from the state pattern and state machines.

It is recommended that you're familiar with both patterns if you're going to use this package.

To give you a feel about how this package can be used, let's look at a quick example.

Imagine a model Payment, which has three possible states: Pending, Paid and Failed. This package allows you to represent each state as a separate class, handles serialization of states to the database behind the scenes, and allows for easy state transitions.

For the sake of our example, let's say that, depending on the state, the color of a payment should differ.

Here's what the Payment model would look like:

use Spatie\ModelStates\HasStates;

/**
 * @property \App\States\PaymentState $state
 */
class Payment extends Model
{
    use HasStates;

    protected function registerStates(): void
    {
        $this
            ->addState('state', PaymentState::class)
            ->allowTransition(Pending::class, Paid::class)
            ->allowTransition(Pending::class, Failed::class, PendingToFailed::class);
    }
}

This is what the abstract PaymentState class would look like:

use Spatie\ModelStates\State;

abstract class PaymentState extends State
{
    abstract public function color(): string;
}

Here's a concrete implementation of one state, the Paid state:

class Paid extends PaymentState
{
    public function color(): string
    {
        return 'green';
    }
}

And here's how it is used:

$payment = Payment::find(1);

$payment->state->transitionTo(Paid::class);

echo $payment->state->color();
