CockroachDB Driver for Laravel

Latest Version on Packagist PHPUnit Tests Check & fix styling Total Downloads codecov Help Fund License PHP Version Require

A driver/grammar for Laravel that works with CockroachDB. While CockroachDB is compatible with Postgresql, this support is not 1 to 1 meaning you may run into issues, this driver hopes to resolve those problems as much as possible.

Laravel 9 through to Laravel 10 is supported and tested against CockroachDB 22 & 23.

Supporting Open Source

Peter Fox here, I just want to say this project has been my hardest yet. It's been a real labour of love to make and takes up a lot of time trying to organise the test suite so that compatibility is maintained between Eloquent and CockroachDB.

I see a lot of promise in using CockroachDB's serverless offering which is what compelled me to go down this route originally. You can read an article I made about using their service.

If you're using this project at all then do please consider sponsoring me as a way of encouraging more development.

Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require ylsideas/cockroachdb-laravel

You need to add the connection type to the database config:

'crdb' => [
    'driver' => 'crdb',
    'url' => env('DATABASE_URL'),
    'host' => env('DB_HOST', '127.0.0.1'),
    'port' => env('DB_PORT', '26257'),
    'database' => env('DB_DATABASE', 'forge'),
    'username' => env('DB_USERNAME', 'forge'),
    'password' => env('DB_PASSWORD', ''),
    'charset' => 'utf8',
    'prefix' => '',
    'prefix_indexes' => true,
    'schema' => 'public',
    'sslmode' => 'prefer',
]

You can also use URLs.

DATABASE_URL=cockroachdb://<username>:<password>@<host>:<port>/<database>?sslmode=verify-full

Usage

To enable set DB_CONNECTION=crdb in your .env.

  • Using storing (when create an index or unique index)

    $table->string('email'); $table->unique('email')->storing('password');

Notes

CockroachDB should work inline with the feature set of Postgresql, with some exceptions. You can look at the features of each CockroachDB server in the CockroachDB Docs.

Deletes with Joins

CockroachDB does not support performing deletes using joins. If you wish to do something like this you will need to use a sub-query instead.

At current if you try to call the delete method of the Query builder together with a join then a YlsIdeas\CockroachDb\Exceptions\FeatureNotSupportedException exception will be thrown.

Fulltext Search

Eloquent and Postgresql support Fulltext search. CockroachDB does not support any full text search meaning the feature cannot be used when using this driver.

At current if you try to create a Fulltext index using the Schema builder or try to use the whereFulltext method of the Query builder a YlsIdeas\CockroachDb\Exceptions\FeatureNotSupportedException exception will be thrown.

Serverless Support

Cockroach Serverless requires you to provide a cluster with connection. Laravel doesn't provide this out of the box, so, it's being implemented as an extra cluster parameter in the database config. Just pass the cluster identification from CockroachDB Serverless.

Schema Dumps

You may use schema dumps. I'm not 100% sure the functionality is correct in line with other drivers. Please raise an issue if it isn't working as expect for you.

'crdb' => [
    'driver' => 'crdb',
    'url' => env('DATABASE_URL'),
    'host' => env('DB_HOST', '127.0.0.1'),
    'port' => env('DB_PORT', '26257'),
    'database' => env('DB_DATABASE', 'forge'),
    'username' => env('DB_USERNAME', 'forge'),
    'password' => env('DB_PASSWORD', ''),
    'charset' => 'utf8',
    'prefix' => '',
    'prefix_indexes' => true,
    'schema' => 'public',
    'sslmode' => 'prefer',
    'cluster' => env('COCKROACHDB_CLUSTER', ''),
]

You may also use a URL in the following format.

DATABASE_URL=cockroachdb://<username>:<password>@<host>:<port>/<database>?sslmode=verify-full&cluster=<cluster>

Testing

The tests try to closely follow the same functionality of the grammar provided by Laravel by lifting the tests straight from laravel/framework. This does provide some complications. Namely, cockroachdb is designed to be distributed so primary keys do not occur in sequence.

Tests should also try to be compatible with not just the latest version of Laravel but across Laravel 8, 9 and 10, this requires some tests to be skipped.

You can run up a local cockroachDB test instance using Docker compose.

docker-composer up -d

If you need to you may run the docker compose file with different cockroachdb versions

VERSION=v23.1.13 docker-compose up -d

Then run the following PHP script to create a test database and user

php ./database.php

Afterwards you can run the test suite.

composer test

To clean up, you only need stop docker composer.

docker-composer down
