This package is mostly for high load apps. It will speed up queries with soft deletes. Boolean field is much better for indexing instead of unique timestamps.


Via Composer

$ composer require tenantcloud/laravel-boolean-softdeletes

Add Webkid\LaravelBooleanSoftdeletes\SoftDeletesBoolean trait to models with soft deletes.

Then create and run migration to add soft delete boolean field

Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {

If you want to use this package for existing project you can use built-in command

php artisan softdeletes:migrate

Also you can change default column name is_deleted to any other by setting static property IS_DELETEDof certain model
