You can use Composer to install Squire into your application.

composer require danharrin/squire

Using a model

You can interact with a Squire model just like you would any other Eloquent model, except that it only handles read-only operations.

use Squire\Models\Country;

Country::all(); // Get information about all countries.

Country::find('us'); // Get information about the United States.

Country::where('name', 'like', 'a%')->get(); // Get information about all countries beginning with the letter "a".

Model relationships

Implementing an Eloquent relationship between a model in your app and a Squire model is very simple. There are a couple of approaches you could take.

Using inheritance

The simplest option is to create a new model in your app, and let it extend the Squire model. Your new app model will now behave like the original Squire model, except you can register new methods and customise it to your liking:

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Squire\Models\Country as SquireCountry;

class Country extends SquireCountry
{
    public function users()
    {
        return $this->hasMany(User::class);
    }
}

See our section on model customisation for more customisation possibilities that are made available if you utilise this method.

Using resolveRelationUsing()

Another option is the resolveRelationUsing() method. This allows you to dynamically register a relationship for a Squire model from anywhere in your app, for example, within a service provider:

use App\Models\User;
use Squire\Models\Country;

Country::resolveRelationUsing('users', function (Country $country) {
    return $country->hasMany(User::class);
});

Column customisation

Squire allows you to customise the column names on any provided model.

Create a new model within your app and let it extend the Squire model that you would like to customise:

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Squire\Models\Country as SquireCountry;

class Country extends SquireCountry
{
    protected $map = [
        'dial_code' => 'calling_code',
    ];
}

In this example, the App\Models\Country, extending the Squire\Models\Country model, has the calling_code column remapped to dial_code:

use App\Models\Country;

Country::find('us')->dial_code; // 1
