Add tags and taggable behaviour to a Laravel app
This package offers taggable behaviour for your models. After the package is installed the only thing you have to do is add the
HasTags trait to an Eloquent model to make it taggable.
But we didn't stop with the regular tagging capabilities you find in every package. Laravel Tags comes with batteries included. Out of the box it has support for translating tags, multiple tag types and sorting capabilities.
You'll find the documentation on https://docs.spatie.be/laravel-tags/v2/introduction/.
Here are some code examples:
//create a model with some tags, don't forget to put "tags" on $fillable array on referred model $newsItem = NewsItem::create([ 'name' => 'The Article Title', 'tags' => ['first tag', 'second tag'], //tags will be created if they don't exist ]); //attaching tags $newsItem->attachTag('third tag'); $newsItem->attachTags(['fourth tag', 'fifth tag']); //detaching tags $newsItem->detachTags('third tag'); $newsItem->detachTags(['fourth tag', 'fifth tag']); //syncing tags $newsItem->syncTags(['first tag', 'second tag']); // all other tags on this model will be detached //syncing tags with a type $newsItem->syncTagsWithType(['category 1', 'category 2'], 'categories'); $newsItem->syncTagsWithType(['topic 1', 'topic 2'], 'topics'); //retrieving tags with a type $newsItem->tagsWithType('categories'); $newsItem->tagsWithType('topics'); //retrieving models that have any of the given tags NewsItem::withAnyTags(['first tag', 'second tag'])->get(); //retrieve models that have all of the given tags NewsItem::withAllTags(['first tag', 'second tag'])->get(); //translating a tag $tag = Tag::findOrCreate('my tag'); $tag->setTranslation('name', 'fr', 'mon tag'); $tag->setTranslation('name', 'nl', 'mijn tag'); $tag->save(); //getting translations $tag->translate('name'); //returns my name $tag->translate('name', 'fr'); //returns mon tag (optional locale param) //convenient translations through taggable models $newsItem->tagsTranslated();// returns tags with slug_translated and name_translated properties $newsItem->tagsTranslated('fr');// returns tags with slug_translated and name_translated properties set for specified locale //using tag types $tag = Tag::findOrCreate('tag 1', 'my type'); //tags have slugs $tag = Tag::findOrCreate('yet another tag'); $tag->slug; //returns "yet-another-tag" //tags are sortable $tag = Tag::findOrCreate('my tag'); $tag->order_column; //returns 1 $tag2 = Tag::findOrCreate('another tag'); $tag2->order_column; //returns 2 //manipulating the order of tags $tag->swapOrder($anotherTag);
