I am using Laravel 5.5, I need to form a query where only date part of a datetime column should be matched, equivalent of
date(date_col)='2018-01-01' kind of thing. How do I achieve this in Eloquent way?
WhereDate() returns date part but is there some way to merge both?
For merging whereDate and between you can use something like this:
User::whereBetween(DB::raw('DATE(created_at)'), array($from_date, $to_date))->get();
select * from `users` where DATE(created_at) between '2018-02-01' and '2018-02-06'
You can use Carbon:
$q->whereDate('date_col', '=', Carbon::parse($date)->toDateString());
whereDate should work too, pass in the value as the 2nd parameter
