Replied to ToJson() Converting 0 To Null

ID10T Error... Nothing to see here, move along. ;)

Replied to ToJson() Converting 0 To Null

I think I tracked this back to some strange accessor behavior that I injected myself.

Replied to ToJson() Converting 0 To Null

Not exactly, that works fine. I mean using json_encode on the model. Something is happening during the translation from model to json where the 0 (zero) values are being replaced by null.

Very hacky solution, but one that works, where $ep is an instance of my model.

json_encode((object)$ep->getAttributes())

Which will return.

   {\n
       "id": 3,\n
       "name": "test",\n
       "critical_low_temp": 0,\n
       "warning_low_temp": 0,\n
       "warning_high_temp": 0,\n
       "critical_high_temp": 0,\n
       "critical_low_humidity": null,\n
       "warning_low_humidity": null,\n
       "warning_high_humidity": null,\n
       "critical_high_humidity": null,\n

I have a model that is returning the following results.

=> App\Models\EnvironmentPolicy {#3891
     id: 3,
     name: "test",
     critical_low_temp: 0.0,
     warning_low_temp: 0.0,
     warning_high_temp: 0.0,
     critical_high_temp: 0.0,
     critical_low_humidity: null,
     warning_low_humidity: null,
     warning_high_humidity: null,
     critical_high_humidity: null,
     read_frequency: 900,
     warning_read_frequency: 900,
     critical_read_frequency: 900,
     modifiable: 1,
     created_at: "2020-01-13 21:38:17",
     updated_at: "2020-01-13 21:38:17",
     deleted_at: null,
   }

->toJson() output. json_encode has the same behavior.

=> "   {\n
       "id": 3,\n
       "name": "test",\n
       "critical_low_temp": null,\n
       "warning_low_temp": null,\n
       "warning_high_temp": null,\n
       "critical_high_temp": null,\n
       "critical_low_humidity": null,\n
       "warning_low_humidity": null,\n
       "warning_high_humidity": null,\n
       "critical_high_humidity": null,\n
       "read_frequency": 15,\n
       "warning_read_frequency": 15,\n
       "critical_read_frequency": 15,\n
       "modifiable": true,\n
       "created_at": "2020-01-13 21:38:17",\n
       "updated_at": "2020-01-13 21:38:17",\n
       "deleted_at": null,\n
       "temp_entity": "℃",\n
       "temp_unit": "C",\n
       "local_created_at": "2020-01-13 16:38:17",\n
       "formatted_created_at": "2020-01-13 16:38:17",\n
       "local_updated_at": "2020-01-13 16:38:17",\n
       "formatted_updated_at": "2020-01-13 16:38:17"\n
   }

In my case, the difference between 0 and null for the temperature points means something. When I take this model and convert to Json, the 0 is replaced by null. I'm looking for a way to change this behavior.

Replied to Eloquent And Tables

I agree w/ Sinnbeck. You could do it all in one query if you wanted to do some subselects. Depending on how often this is used/calculated you may want to consider a SQL view or even a nightly job to do the calculation into a warehouse and then pull your daily off that. It all depends on your final objective.

Replied to Vapor Series

Could be that Jeffery is already working on it or choosing to steer clear since it really is more Ops/Hosting. Either answer I can accept, however material Jeffery put's together just has a way of 'sticking' with me.

Started a new Conversation Vapor Series

I know it's not specifically development but with the merging of Dev and Ops it would be great to have a video series about Vapor and getting up and running.
