Laravel 9 - Prunable trait to automatically remove models from your database

You can use the Prunable trait to automatically remove models from your database.

(ex.) You can permanently remove soft deleted models after a few days.

class ExampleClass extends Model
{
    use SoftDeletes;
    use Prunable;

    public function prunable()
    {
        // Files matching this query will be pruned
        return static::query()->where('deleted_at', '<=', now()->subDays(14));
    }

    protected function pruning()
    {
        // Remove the file from s3 before deleting the model
        Storage::disk('s3')->delete($this->filename);
    }
}

Add PruneCommand to your schedule (app/Console/Kernel.php)

$schedule->command(PruneCommand::class)->daily();
