Controllers should be in singular case, no spacing between words, and end with "Controller".
Also, each word should be capitalized (i.e. BlogController, not blogcontroller).
BlogController, AuthController, UserController.
UsersController (because it is in plural), Users (because it is missing the Controller suffix).
DB tables should be in lower case, with underscores to separate words (snake_case), and should be in plural form.
posts, project_tasks, uploaded_images.
all_posts, Posts, post, blogPosts
Pivot tables should be all lower case, each model in alphabetical order, separated by an underscore (snake_case).
post_user, task_user etc.
Table column names should be in lower case, and snake_case (underscores between words). You shouldn't reference the table name.
post_body, id, created_at.
blog_post_created_at, forum_thread_title, threadTitle.
This should normally be id.
Foreign keys should be the model name (singular), with '_id' appended to it (assuming the PK in the other table is 'id').
Normal variables should typically be in camelCase, with the first character lower case.
$users = ..., $bannedUsers = ....
$all_banned_users = ..., $Users=....
If the variable contains an array or collection of multiple items then the variable name should be in plural. Otherwise, it should be in singular form.
$users = User::all(); (as this will be a collection of multiple User objects), but $user = User::first() (as this is just one object)
Naming Models in Laravel
A model should be in singular, no spacing between words, and capitalised.
User (AppUser or AppModelsUser, etc), ForumThread, Comment.
Users, ForumPosts, blogpost, blog_post, Blog_posts.
These should be lower case, snake_case. They should also follow the same conventions as the table column names.
Methods in your models in Laravel projects, like all methods in your Laravel projects, should be camelCase but the first character lower case.
public function get(), public function getAll().
public function GetPosts(), public function get_posts().
hasOne or belongsTo relationship (one to many) These should be singular form and follow the same naming conventions of normal model methods (camelCase, but with the first letter lower case) For example: public function postAuthor(), public function phone(). hasMany, belongsToMany, hasManyThrough (one to many) These should be the same as the one to many naming conventions, however, it should be in plural.
public function comments(), public function roles().
These can be a bit awkward to get the naming correct.
Ideally, you want to be able to have a method such as this:
And Laravel will by default assume that there is a categoryable_id and categoryable_type.
But you can use the other optional parameters for morphMany ( public function morphMany($related, $name, $type = null, $id = null, $localKey = null)) to change the defaults.
These should follow the same rules as model methods. I.e. camelCase (first character lowercase).
In addition, for normal CRUD operations, they should use one of the following method names.
Verb URI Typical Method Name Route Name
Traits should be be adjective words.
Notifiable, Dispatchable, etc.
Blade files should be in lower case, snake_case (underscore between words).
all.blade.php, all_posts.blade.php, etc
