Install Scout via the Composer package manager:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Laravel\Scout\ScoutServiceProvider"

MySQL Driver

Search Shopaholic Models using MySQL FULLTEXT Indexes

Note: Any Models you plan to search using this driver must use a MySQL MyISAM or InnoDB table.

Install with Composer

composer require yab/laravel-scout-mysql-driver

Append the default configuration to config/scout.php

 'mysql' => [
 'mode' => 'NATURAL_LANGUAGE',
 'model_directories' => [app_path()],
 'min_search_length' => 0,
 'min_fulltext_search_length' => 4,
 'min_fulltext_search_fallback' => 'LIKE',
 'query_expansion' => false

Set SCOUT_DRIVER=mysql in your .env file

Please note this Laravel Scout driver does not need to update any indexes when a Model is changed as this is handled natively by MySQL. Therefore you can safely disable queuing in config/scout.php.

 | Queue Data Syncing
 | This option allows you to control if the operations that sync your data
 | with your search engines are queued. When this is set to "true" then
 | all automatic data syncing will get queued for better performance.
 'queue' => false,

In addition there is no need to use the php artisan scout:import command. However, if you plan to use this driver in either NATURAL_LANGUAGE or BOOLEAN mode you should first run the provided console command to create the needed FULLTEXT indexes.

Note: It is recommended to configure PHP memory_limit to 1024M or more
