To find a user by user name in Laravel, you can use the where method on the User model. Here's an example code snippet to find a user by user name:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
use AppModelsUser;

$user = User::where('username', $username)->first();

if($user){
    // User found
    // Do something with the user
}else{
    // User not found
}


In the code snippet above, replace $username with the actual user name you are looking for. This code will query the users table in the database and return the first user with the specified user name. If the user is found, you can then access the user object and work with it as needed.
