Update Table in Laravel Migrations

Here, i have come with another small piece of code which you can use in updating your laravel existing migrations.

Run this command to create migration

php artisan make:migration update_users_table
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
<?php

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

class UpdateUsersTable extends Migration
{
    /**
     * Run the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function up()
    {
        Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
        $table->string('name', 255)->nullable(true)->change();
        $table->renameColumn('first_name', 'full_name');
        $table->dropColumn('age');
        $table->string('email')->unique()->change();
        $table->integer('gender');
    });
    }

    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function down()
    {
        Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
        $table->string('name', 255)->nullable(false)->change();
        $table->renameColumn('full_name', 'first_name');
        $table->integer('age');
        $table->dropUnique('email');
        $table->dropColumn('gender');
    });
    }
};
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now run this command

run the command php artisan migrate
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
