To convert a date into an integer in Laravel, you can use the Carbon class provided by the Laravel framework. Carbon is an extension of the DateTime class in PHP and provides additional functionality for working with dates and times.


Here's how you can convert a date into an integer using Carbon in Laravel:

1
2
3
4
5
6
use CarbonCarbon;

$date = Carbon::parse('2022-01-01');
$integerDate = $date->timestamp;

echo $integerDate;


In this example, we first use the Carbon::parse() method to create a Carbon instance from the date string '2022-01-01'. Then, we use the timestamp property of the Carbon instance to get the Unix timestamp representation of the date, which is an integer value.


You can use the $integerDate variable as needed in your Laravel application.
