arrow_back Manage Cache Items Based on Model Queries in Laravel

LaraCache is an awesome package, using this package, you can cache your heavy and most used queries. All you have to do is to define the CacheEntity objects in the model and specify a valid name and TTL for them. LaraCache will handle the rest of the process automatically. It will create and update cache entities based on the TTL that you’ve defined for each entity.

Manually updating the cache entities of models after dispatching model events (creating, updating, and deleting) isn’t required, LaraCache manages them in the background and ensures the most up-to-date version of each cache entity.


You can install the package via composer:

composer require mostafaznv/laracache

Publish config file:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Mostafaznv\LaraCache\LaraCacheServiceProvider"


Add LaraCache trait to the model


namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
use Mostafaznv\LaraCache\Traits\LaraCache;

class Article extends Model
    use LaraCache;
     * Define Cache Entities Entities
     * @return CacheEntity[]
    public static function cacheEntities(): array
        return [
                ->cache(function() {
                    return Article::query()->latest()->get();

                ->cache(function() {
                    return Article::query()->latest()->first();
