I'm trying to build some modular packages to simplify my workflow when trying to support multiple projects. Their are some problem I'm facing, but right now the main problem I'm having is with the Eloquent Part and making relations in a modular way.
So I took out the
App\User and placed them in my modular package
Model directory, So its new place is
Module\User\Model\User. I have another Model
UserProfile in that same place and because of it, I can put the relations out their because it is part of that same module.
However there is a
Acl module which is dependent on the
User module and has
Role model. Because of it I can add relation to the
Role model with
User model, but can't do the same in the
User model with
User module is not dependent on
Acl module. To add the relation on
Role, I have to add code in the
User and that's what I wanted to avoid. What if one of my app doesn't need
Also what happens when I start to add Blog, News, Comments etc. Do I have to add relations on the
User model for all of them? What if one of them doesn't require News module, should my news relation codes still stays in the
I really want to use Eloquent because of some of its great features when dealing with saving relation based data. If there is a simple solution on how to avoid adding tons of relations on the
User model, do please guide me. Also this is not just about
User model, it could be on any model when working with modular application (or packages in my case).
