1.4 User Guide

Show Source


Gas makes some assumptions about your database structure. Each table should have primary key, default to id. If your primary key isn’t id, you can set primary_key properties. Each table should have same name with its corresponding Gas model’s name, otherwise you will need to set table properties.

Typically your Gas model will be something like this, let say you have user_gas.php to hold user table.

class User extends Gas {


As simple as that, then you can start using finder or doing some write operation.

Model Properties

But if somehow, your schema didn’t allow you to follow above convention, you can specify both table and primary_key properties, so it would be something like :

class User extends Gas {

        public $table = 'peoples';

        public $primary_key = 'people_id';


And you are ready to go further.
