Together with Marcel Pociot and our colleagues at Beyond Code and Spatie, I'm currently building Flare, a paid service which will be revealed at Laracon EU. Together with the service we'll release a package that will change the way you will work with Laravel. To stay in the loop subscribe to our mailinglist at https://flareapp.io

Using UUIDs with Laravel’s Eloquent ORM

Link –

Garrett St. John wrote a clear example on how to use UUIDs in Eloquent models. This kind of logic could go in a trait so it can be reused across multiple models.

By default, Eloquent uses an auto-incrementing integer as the primary key for its tables. While most of the time this is totally acceptable, sometimes there is a need for primary keys to be less predictable.

EDIT: Kirk Bushell has made a trait for this functionality. Take a look at his Eloquence package on GitHub.

Follow me on Twitter. I regularly tweet out programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.

Every two weeks I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.

Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.

Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.
