README

A customizable name formatter class for Laravel.

Install

Via Composer

$ composer require taylornetwork/name-formatter

Publish Config

$ php artisan vendor:publish

This will add nameformatter.php to your config directory

Usage

Create a new instance of the class by passing it an instance of Illuminate\Eloquent\Model and call format()

Let's say we have a Customer model at App\Customer

use Illuminate\Eloquent\Model;

class Customer extends Model
{
	protected $fillable = [
		'first_name', 'last_name', 'address', 
	];
}

We want to add a fullName attribute to our customer. We can create a getAttribute method Laravel will use to create the attribute for us. See Laravel Eloquent Documentation for more information.

use Illuminate\Eloquent\Model;
use TaylorNetwork\Formatters\Name\Formatter;

class Customer extends Model
{
	protected $fillable = [
		'first_name', 'last_name', 'address', 
	];
	
	public function getFullNameAttribute()
	{
		$formatter = new Formatter($this);
		return $formatter->format();
	}
}

Get the customer's full name

$customer = App\Customer::create([ 
	'first_name' => 'John',
	'last_name' => 'Doe',
	'address' => '123 Main Street'
]);

echo $customer->fullName;

Returns

'John Doe'

By default the Formatter class will concatenate the first_name attribute, a space and the last_name attribute.

Trait

This package includes a trait you can add to your model that will add a fullName attribute.

use Illuminate\Eloquent\Model;
use TaylorNetwork\Formatters\Name\FormatsFullName;

class Customer extends Model
{
	use FormatsFullName;

	protected $fillable = [
		'first_name', 'last_name', 'address', 
	];
}

You can then access the full name using the default configuration by:

echo $customer->fullName;

Override Formatter Config

You can override the formatter config when using the trait by overriding the formatterConfig method in your model

use Illuminate\Eloquent\Model;
use TaylorNetwork\Formatters\Name\FormatsFullName;

class Customer extends Model
{
    use FormatsFullName;

	protected $fillable = [
		'first_name', 'last_name', 'address', 
	];
	
	public function formatterConfig(&$formatter)
	{
	    $formatter->style('L, F');
	}
}

Available Methods

format ()

Returns formatted name.

map (string | array $field, string | null $modelField)

By default the Formatter class will look for a first_name and last_name attribute on the model it was passed. If the model you are passing it has different attribute names fot first and last names you can either pass an associative array to the map function or two strings.

For a model with a first name attribute named fName and a last name attribute named lName

$formatter = new TaylorNetwork\Formatters\Name\Formatter($model);

$formatter->map([ 'first_name' => 'fName', 'last_name' => 'lName' ])->format();

// OR

$formatter->map('first_name', 'fName')->map('last_name', 'lName')->format();

style (string $style)

By default the Formatter class will format names as $first_name . ' ' . $last_name You can override the style with the style function. style accepts a string with the formatting you would like Formatter to use

Key Description Example: 'John Doe'
'F' The full first name 'John'
'L' The full last name 'Doe'
'f' The first initial 'J'
'l' The last initial 'D'

Any other characters in the string will appear in the formatted name

Examples
$model->first_name = 'John';
$model->last_name = 'Doe';

$formatter = new TaylorNetwork\Formatters\Name\Formatter($model);

To get the first initial and last name

$formatter->style('f L')->format();

// Returns

'J Doe'

To get the last initial, the first name

$formatter->style('l, F')->format();

// Returns

'D, John'

To get the first and last initials

$formatter->style('fl')->format();

// Returns

'JD'

You can even add other characters to the style string

$formatter->style('F_L')->format();

// Returns

'John_Doe'

Every key in the string is replaced, so you could do something like this. (Though I don't know why you would)

$formatter->style('fffF lllL')->format();

// Returns

'JJJJohn DDDDoe'

Config

Once you run php artisan vendor:publish the config file nameformatter.php will be in your config directory. There you can set the defaults you want in terms of format style, field map, etc.
