Laravel 5 Generators

Jeffrey Way created one of the most popular packages for Laravel 4 named “Generators”. These allowed you to speed up your development process by issuing Artisan commands to create code. They are so handy in fact that Laravel 5 is now included several of these out of the box.

The updated Generator package currently introduces three commands that are not in Laravel 5:

  • make:migration:schema
  • make:migration:pivot
  • make:seed

Here is an example of creating a migration with schema:

php artisan make:migration:schema create_users_table --schema="username:string, email:string:unique"

The documentation says one or two additional coming in the future.

For more information on the generators check out the video and the project repo.
