Definition & Principles#

Read Porto SAP Documentation (#Models).


  • All Models MUST extend from App\Ship\Parents\Models\Model.
  • If the name of a model differs from the Container name you have to implement model() method in the repository - more details.

Folder Structure#

 - App    - Containers        - {section-name}            - {container-name}                - Models                    - User.php                    - UserId.php                    - ...

Code Sample#

class Demo extends Model{    protected $table = 'demos';
    protected $fillable = [        'label',        'user_id'    ];
    protected $hidden = [        'token',    ];
    protected $casts = [        'total_credits'     => 'float',    ];
    protected $dates = [        'created_at',        'updated_at',    ];
    public function user()    {        return $this->belongsTo(\App\Containers\AppSection\User\Models\User::class);    }}

Notice the Demo Model has a relationship with User Model, which lives in another Container.


The casts attribute can be used to parse any of the model's attributes to a specific type. In the code sample below we can cast total_credits to float.

More information about the applicable cast-types can be found in the laravel eloquent-mutators documentation.

You can place any dates inside the $dates to parse those automatically.
