In Laravel, you can join tables by using Eloquent's query builder methods. Here's an example of how to join tables in Laravel:

1
2
3
4
$users = DB::table('users')
    ->join('posts', 'users.id', '=', 'posts.user_id')
    ->select('users.*', 'posts.title', 'posts.content')
    ->get();


In this example, we are joining the users table with the posts table on the user_id column. We then select certain columns from both tables and fetch the results using the get() method.


You can also use Eloquent relationships to join tables. In your model files, you can define relationships between tables like so:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
15
class User extends Model
{
    public function posts()
    {
        return $this->hasMany(Post::class);
    }
}

class Post extends Model
{
    public function user()
    {
        return $this->belongsTo(User::class);
    }
}


Then you can retrieve data from joined tables like this:

1
$users = User::with('posts')->get();


This will fetch all users with their associated posts.


These are just a few examples of how you can join tables in Laravel. Depending on your specific requirements, you may need to customize the query or the relationships between tables.
