Today I come across a use case where I need to minimise writing
route('resources.index)` and so on, all related to resourceful routes.
Can it be more simpler if based on given model, I can simply get the model's resourceful URL without think much what's the name of the resourceful route?
What I mean, I don't want to remember anything about given model, what's its route names. I assumed it should be some sort of standard naming convention.
For instance, if given model is
\App\Models\User, it's URI always in lower case, plural and kebab case -
It's quite simple if you developing a small application.
BUT, if you are handling a huge application, multiple modules and features in it, best to keep it consistent and easy to maintain.
Here how I solve the use case:
Use this trait in any models, and the usage:
With this solution, I make two things clear:
- A standard naming convention for my URIs.
- A seamless way to get model's URI
And an absolute rule:
- Your model need to use the trait.
- Your route for the model need to be resourceful.
Another question, do you need to apply this to all models? Yes, but work smart - create a base model that later on, all models extend from the base class. Again, you model is maintainable for future use.
