Serialize computed property Carbon instance

Posted 1 month ago by smnwk


my model offers a computed property called "departureTime"; if a departure time is available, it will be returned as a Carbon instance. By serializing I just want to get the date so I added a cast in my $date property (I also tried $casts) but nevertheless it does not work.

class Track extends Model
    protected $dates = ['time', 'arrivalTime', 'departureTime'];

    /** ... other stuff ... **/

    public function getDepartureTimeAttribute() {
        if(!$this->isDriving) {
            return null;

        $lastNullPosition = Track::where([
            ['speed', 0], ['created_at', '<=', $this->created_at]
        ])->orderBy('id', 'desc')->first();

        return $lastNullPosition->time;
"departureTime":{"date":"2018-12-15 16:33:51.000000","timezone_type":3,"timezone":"Europe\/Berlin"}

Maybe someone could help me.
