This package allows you to make multiple diagrams of your Eloquent models and their relations. It will help building them providing drag and drop relations, forms to create and edit your models and many options like adding resource controllers, form requests and running migrations by the click of a button or (configurable) automatically. It also will give you insights in the migrations you ran and the ones specified in your migrations folder.
Its aim is to help you (and your team) get more grip on the models from a code perspective, the status of your migrations and build / edit them faster.
You can install the package via composer:
composer require mtolhuys/laravel-schematics
php artisan schematics:install which will do the route caching, create vendor assets in your public folder and
setup the configuration file.
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Mtolhuys\LaravelSchematics\LaravelSchematicsServiceProvider"
Make sure the routes are cached!

When you drag and drop the arrow to another model you'll get a form to specify the relation you want to build f.e:
Clicking on them will show something like:

To specify the types of your columns I've chosen the form request rule syntax. To see what's available you can click the little help icon below the fields in the model form:
The package is flexible enough to differentiate between renaming and changing column types.
It will create migrations according the need to change or create a table and setup your
I do strongly suggest you check the migrations before running them if the stakes are high.
You don't have to worry about existing migrations though, the package will only look for migrations it created itself
by checking the value of the
@tag in the comment it adds. It looks like this:
