UUID with support for Model and Entity


I created a small package that makes it easy to work with UUID in CodeIgniter 4 - https://github.com/michalsn/codeigniter4-uuid

This package work with different versions of UUID - starting from version 1 and up to version 6 - but everything is integrated into a model class to make it work smoothly. So we basically use it like a "normal" model class. We can also store UUID in the database in a byte format to optimize the used space.

Let me get you a small example of how would using UUID as a primary key in our model would look like:

PHP Code:

namespace App\Models;


Project1Model extends UuidModel
    protected $table      'projects_1';
    protected $primaryKey 'id';

    protected $returnType 'array';
    protected $useSoftDeletes true;

    protected $allowedFields = ['name''description''created_at''updated_at''deleted_at'];

    protected $useTimestamps true;

    protected $validationRules = [
        'name' => 'required|min_length[3]',
        'description' => 'required',

Out model have to extend UuidModel instead of Model and that's it. More detailed info is available in the project repo.

Thumbs Up 
Thanks, very usefull. 

When do you think you have a release version?

Hi there!

Sorry that I'm responding so late but I didn't get any notification about new response for this thread.

First official release? Probably shortly after next CI version will be released... so probably next month.
