About LaraMake

LaraMake is a package that overrides the built-in artisan make commands to add command options that we believe should have been included out-of-the-box, but weren't.

Laravel doesn't want to bloat their commands with too many flags, so we'll do it for them!


Require the package with Composer:

composer require thefletcher/laramake

Add the Service Provider to config/app.php:

'providers' => [
    // Laravel Framework Service Providers...
    // ...
    // Package Service Providers
    // ...
    // Application Service Providers
    // ...

Verify that Artisan is using the new commands:

php artisan make:model --help

You should see new options available, including --table


Below are the commands that have been overridden and what options were added.


This command creates a Model class.

New options include:

Long Short Purpose Example
--namespace={namespace} Set the namespace to put the model in. --namespace=App\Models
--table={table} -t={table} Set the table name for the model to use. --table=products
--no-timestamps Set $timestamps=false to tell the model not to expect created_at or updated_at fields. --no-timestamps
--primarykey={key} -k={key} Set a custom primary key for the model. --primarykey=id
--no-incrementing Set $incrementing = false to tell the model that it's primary key is not auto-incrementing. --no-incrementing
--connection={conn} Set the $connection the model should use. --connection=mongodb


This command creates a ServiceProvider class.

New options include:

Long Short Purpose Example
--defer -d Set $defer to defer loading of the Provider. --defer


If there are any options you wish Laravel had and would like added here, please create an issue through Github.

If you wish to work on adding new options, I welcome Pull Requests, but only after discussion in an issue first.
