Up until now, I've written migrations and generated seeders for some Laravel projects that I have worked on but recently, I thought of seeing if there's a way to generate migrations and seeds from an existing database especially if it's a project that never had any migrations or seeds created before.
Luckily, I found these two packages, which turned out to be quite productive:
Execute the following commands to install the packages mentioned above:
composer require --dev "kitloong/laravel-migrations-generator" composer require orangehill/iseed
Generate migrations using existing database
You can generate your migrations for all tables like this:
php artisan migrate:generate
Or, you can specify the tables you wish to generate:
php artisan migrate:generate table1,table2,table3
Generate new seeds using existing database
You can generate seeds for a single table like this:
php artisan iseed table_name
And for multiple tables, you can do this:
php artisan iseed table1,table2,table3
Hope you find this tip useful!.
