This video walks through installing this package and creating a basic survey.

Installation

Require the package using composer.

composer require matt-daneshvar/laravel-survey

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="MattDaneshvar\Survey\SurveyServiceProvider" --tag="migrations"

Run the migrations to create all the required tables.

Usage

Creating a Survey

Creating a new Survey is easy! You can build your survey fluently just like how you create all your Eloquent models in your app.

$survey = Survey::create(['name' => 'Cat Population Survey']);

$survey->questions()->create([
     'content' => 'How many cats do you have?',
     'type' => 'number',
     'rules' => ['numeric', 'min:0']
 ]);

$survey->questions()->create([
    'content' => 'What\'s the name of your first cat',
]);

$survey->questions()->create([
    'content' => 'Would you want a new cat?',
    'type' => 'radio',
    'options' => ['Yes', 'Oui']
]);

Creating Multiple Sections

You may also park your questions under multiple sections.

$survey = Survey::create(['name' => 'Cat Population Survey']);

$one = $survey->sections()->create(['name' => 'Part One']);

$one->questions()->create([
    'content' => 'How many cats do you have?',
    'type' => 'number',
    'rules' => ['numeric', 'min:0']
]);

$two = $survey->sections()->create(['name' => 'Part Two']);

$two->questions()->create([
    'content' => 'What\'s the name of your first cat?',
]);

$two->questions()->create([
    'content' => 'Would you want a new cat?',
    'type' => 'radio',
    'options' => ['Yes', 'Oui']
]);

Creating an Entry

From an Array

The Entry model comes with a fromArray function.
This is especially useful when you’re creating an entry from a form submission.

(new Entry)->for($survey)->fromArray([
    'q1' => 'Yes',
    'q2' => 5
])->push();

By a Specific User

You may fluently specify the participant using the by() function.

(new Entry)->for($survey)->by($user)->fromArray($answers)->push();

Setting Constraints

When creating your survey, you may set some constraints to be enforced every time a new Entry is being created.

Allowing Guest Entries

By default, Entry models require a participant_id when being created. If you wish to change this behaviour and accept guest entries, set the accept-guest-entries option on your Survey model.

Survey::create(['settings' => ['accept-guest-entries' => true]]);

Adjusting Entries Per Participant Limit

All Survey models default to accept only 1 entry per unique participant. You may adjust the limit-per-participant option on your Survey model or set it to -1 to remove this limit altogether.

Survey::create(['settings' => ['limit-per-participant' => 1]]);

Note that this setting will be ignored if the accept-guest-entries option is activated.

Validation

Defining Validation Rules

Add in a rules attribute when you’re creating your Question to specify the validation logic for the answers being received.

Question::create([
    'content' => 'How many cats do you have?', 
    'rules' => ['numeric', 'min:0']
]);

Note that as opposed to the survey constraints, the question validators are not automatically triggered during the entry creation process. To validate the answers, you should manually run the validation in your controller (see below)

Validating Submissions

Validate user’s input against the entire rule set of your Survey using Laravel’s built in validator.

class SurveyEntriesController extends Controller
{
    public function store(Survey $survey, Request $request)
    {
        $answers = $this->validate($request, $survey->rules);
        
        (new Entry)->for($survey)->fromArray($answers)->push();
    }
}

Views

This package comes with boilerplate Bootstrap 4.0 views to display the surveys and some basic question types. These views are meant to serve as examples, and may not be sufficient for your final use case. To display a survey in a card, include the survey partial in your views:

@include('survey::standard', ['survey' => $survey])

Customizing the Views

To customize the boilerplate views shipped with this package run package:publish with the views tag.

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="MattDaneshvar\Survey\SurveyServiceProvider" --tag="views"

This will create a new vendor/survey directory where you can fully customize the survey views to your liking.
