Migrations

Definition#

Migrations (are the short name for Database Migrations).

Migrations are the version control of your database. They are very useful for generating and documenting the database tables.

Principles#

  • Migrations SHOULD be created inside the Containers folders.

  • Migrations will be autoloaded in the framework

Rules#

  • No need to publish the DB Migrations. Just run the artisan migrate command and Laravel will read the Migrations from the Containers.

Folder Structure#

- app
- Containers
- User
- Data
- Migrations
- 2200_01_01_000001_create_users_table.php
- ...

Code Samples#

User CreateUsersTable Migrations:

<?php
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
class CreateUsersTable extends Migration
{
public function up()
{
Schema::create('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
$table->increments('id');
$table->string('name');
$table->string('email')->unique();
$table->string('password');
$table->rememberToken();
$table->timestamps();
$table->softDeletes();
});
}
public function down()
{
Schema::drop('users');
}
}
