Generate Eloquent Model Base for Laravel.


Laravel-Model-Base is a Laravel command to perform repetitive tasks while creating new models, and saving it into a abstract model base, so you can update it any time, without need to worry about overwriting your manual changes in the model.

The main goal of the model base it's generate eloquent configurations based on the database table architecture, meaning that it could not be any business logic implemented, or any other logic not comming from the database itself. If you are interested in adding extra properties, methods, interfaces or traits, you can do so in the model itself.

This generator can be customised by the config parameters, but it can also be extended by the modifiers.

The model will be optionally generated too, but in this case, it will never be able to be overwritten by this tool.


Require this package with composer using the following command:

composer require triun/laravel-model-base:dev-master

After updating composer, add the service provider to the providers array in config/app.php


Development only installation

To install this package on only development systems, add the --dev flag to your composer command:

composer require --dev triun/laravel-model-base:dev-master

Instead of adding the service provider in the config/app.php file, you should add the following code to your app/Providers/AppServiceProvider.php file, within the register() method:

public function register()
    if ($this->app->environment() !== 'production') {
    // ...

This will allow your application to load the Laravel IDE Helper on non-production environments.


To create one model base

php artisan make:mode-base table_name [--connection connection_name]

For Bulk creation

php artisan make:mode-base-bulk [--connection connection_name]

Note: if the connection is not defined, it would get the default one.


You can publish the configuration file into your app with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Triun\ModelBase\ModelBaseServiceProvider" --tag=config


If you are using Lumen, you may need to do some manual steps...

Copy the config file into your config directory:

cp vendor/triun/laravel-model-base/config/model-base.php config/

And you may also need to uncomment the following lines in bootstrap/app.php file:

# bootstrap/app.php

$app = new Laravel\Lumen\Application(

$app->withFacades(true, [
    Illuminate\Support\Facades\App::class => 'App',
    Illuminate\Support\Facades\File::class => 'File',

So we can use Facades and Eloquent, as well as add some content in the AppServiceProvider:

namespace App\Providers;

use Illuminate\Support\ServiceProvider;

class AppServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
    public function register()
        $this->app->instance('path.config', app()->basePath() . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'config');
        if ($this->app->environment() !== 'production') {


Besides the configuration file, you can also add or create your own modifiers.


If you want to add behaviours to the generator, you can do so using the skeleton modifiers.

Modifiers Packages

Those are some modifiers packages:


Add modifiers

If you already have any modifier package, you can load it by adding it in the config/model-base.php file, in the 'modifiers' array.


Create your own modifiers
