Eloquent Search Examples

Small examples

Let's start with a basic scenario, A tenant has N users, each user has a config and a profile:

Image for post
Image for post
  • Query 1:

Bring all users wich have:

user column is_active in config relationship equals true
user column address in profile relationship contains “Foo”
user column tenant_id equals 1

Pure Eloquent:

User::where('tenant_id', 1)
->whereHas('profile', function($q) {
$q->whereRaw('address LIKE %Foo%')
->whereHas('config', function($q) {
$q->where('is_active', true);

Eloquent Search:

User::search('profile.address', 'contains', "Foo")-search('config.is_active', true)->search('tenant_id', 1)
  • Query 2

Bring a list of user pictures, from a specific tenant, following the conditions:

user column is_active in config equals false
user column created_at must be greater than equal 2000–01–01 or null
Picture is a column in profile table,

Pure Eloquent:

Profile::whereHas('config', function($q) {
$q->where('is_active', true);
$q->where('created_at', '>=', '2000-01-01')
->orWhere('created_at', null);

Eloquent Search

Profile::search('config.is_active', false)
['created_at', 'lte', '2000-01-01', 'or'],
['created_at', null]
  • Query 3

Search all profiles wich:
- Columns address, street and number contains at least one word of this sentence “Lorem Ipsum Ignolis

Eloquent Search:

In profile Model:

class Profile extends Model
$searchable = ['address', 'street', 'number']
...Profile::searchText('Lorem Ipsum Ignolis')->get();
  • Query 4

Search users with ID greater than 100
Exclude users with ID is between 200 and 300
Exclude users with status_id is in [1,4,6]

User::search('id', 'gt', 100)
['id', 'not_gt', 200' 'and'],
['id', 'not_lt', 300]
])->search('status_id', 'not_in', [1,4,6]);
  • Query 5

Bring all users wich profile.cash_amount is different from zero OR users with column is_superadmin equals true

Pure Eloquent:

$q1->whereHas('profile', function($q1) {
$q1->where('cash_amount', '!=', 200);
})->orWhere('is_superadmin, true);

Eloquent Search

User::search('profile.cash_amount', 'not_exact', 0)->orSearch('is_superadmin', true)
