I’ve made migrations for them, just use DB:raw and use SQL to drop and create them when applicable. As it is with regular Laravel migrations, the more care you take to write them to ensure they can go up and down, the better off you will be. This will allow for quick set up/spin up of your containers.
@paulhendry Bob Smith Thank you for your feedback. My hope with this article was to see other peoples implementations of their code within Laravel. I’ve been able to learn a lot from several people here, yourselves included.
I’d been having the same concerns of over-engineering, & not following DRY. I do still have concerns…
