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.


  • Migrations SHOULD be created inside the Containers folders.

  • Migrations will be autoloaded in the framework


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