To store an array of objects in Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Define a model for the objects you want to store. You can create a new model by running the following Artisan command:
1
php artisan make:model Object


  1. Define the structure of the object in the model class. For example, if your object has the properties "name" and "value", define them in the model like this:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
namespace App;

use IlluminateDatabaseEloquentModel;

class Object extends Model
{
    protected $fillable = ['name', 'value'];
}


  1. Create a migration to create a table for storing the objects. You can create a new migration by running the following Artisan command:
1
php artisan make:migration create_objects_table


  1. Define the structure of the table in the migration file. For example, if your object has the properties "name" and "value", define them in the migration like this:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
public function up()
{
    Schema::create('objects', function (Blueprint $table) {
        $table->id();
        $table->string('name');
        $table->string('value');
        $table->timestamps();
    });
}


  1. Run the migration to create the table in the database:
1
php artisan migrate


  1. Now you can store an array of objects by creating new instances of the model and saving them to the database. For example, you can do something like this in your controller:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
$objects = [
    ['name' => 'object1', 'value' => 'value1'],
    ['name' => 'object2', 'value' => 'value2'],
];

foreach ($objects as $obj) {
    Object::create($obj);
}


This will create new rows in the "objects" table with the data from the array of objects.
