Processing big DB tables with Laravel's chunk() method

Link –

Povilas Korop shared a neat trick at Laraveldaily.com today.

Let’s imagine the situation: you have a big database table (like 10 000 rows or bigger) and you need to run an update to one column. But you cannot run just SQL query – there is some PHP logic behind it. So foreach loop could potentially take forever or bump into a default 30-second script limit. Luckily, Laravel has a neat solution for it.

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.
