Laravel Model Settings


July 11th, 2019

Laravel Model Settings is a package by Lorand Gombos to provide model settings configuration in a database field or a separate database table.

The package ships with two traits—settings in a field or table—that you can configure in a given model (one or the other, not both). First, the settings field is a JSON field:

// Settings field

use Glorand\Model\Settings\Traits\HasSettingsField;

class User extends Model
    use HasSettingsField;

    //define only if you select a dirrerent name from the default
    public $settingsFieldName = 'user_settings';  


And a separate settings table option:

use Glorand\Model\Settings\Traits\HasSettingsTable;

class User extends Model
    use HasSettingsTable;

Here’s some basic usage examples in a model:

// Get all settings

// Get a specific setting
$user->settings()->get('some.setting', 'default value');

// Add/Update
$user->settings()->set('some.setting', 'new value');
$user->settings()->update('some.setting', 'new value');

// Remove

You can learn more about this package, get full installation instructions, and view the source code on GitHub at glorand/laravel-model-settings.
