Conditional eloquent with when()

Sharing is caring!

Laravel offers “when” method in its eloquent ORM which makes easier for developers to set conditionals in their queries.

For example: You may have written queries like:

There is a if conditional here, which is changing our eloquent query based upon the presence of filter parameter in the request.

To clean it out, there is a better alternative provided. The method is when().

The query now is only modified, if the first parameter of the when function is true.

Everything is awesome.
