Useful Laravel Date Scopes for Eloquent Models

Useful Laravel Date Scopes for Eloquent Models image

The Laravel Date Scopes package provides some helpful query scopes for your Laravel Eloquent models. It was inspired by this Tweet by Livewire creator Caleb Porzio:

That tweet inspired the article Laravel Eloquent Models: How to Filter by Dates like a Pro with Traits by Moumen Alisawe. Which then inspired the Date Scopes package.

As found in the readme, given the following model, add the DateScopes trait as follows:

use LaracraftTech\LaravelDateScopes\DateScopes;
 
class Transaction extends Model
{
use DateScopes;
}

Which gives you tons of time-based scopes. The following examples are for various hour scopes, and there are similar methods for seconds, minutes, days, weeks, months, years, decades, and so on:

// query transactions created during the last hour
Transaction::ofLastHour();
 
// query transactions created during the last 6 hours
Transaction::ofLast6Hours();
 
// query transactions created during the last 12 hours
Transaction::ofLast12Hours();
 
// query transactions created during the last 18 hours
Transaction::ofLast18Hours();
 
// query transactions created during the last 24 hours
Transaction::ofLast24Hours();
 
// query transactions created during the last N hours
Transaction::ofLastHours(48);

Here's an example of how to get all transactions in the last year using the lastYear() date scope:

$transactions = Transaction::lastYear()->get();

I love how this idea was built upon through contributions of multiple people in the Laravel community. From inspiration, to example, to a package that you can easily install in your Laravel application! 👏

To get started, you can learn more about this package, get full installation instructions, and view the source code on GitHub.
