Search Comma Separated values using FIND_IN_SET in Laravel Query Builder

In this post, I will tell you how to search comma separated value in Laravel Query Builder using MySQL find_in_set() method.

Using find_in_set() method, you can find the position of a string within a comma separated value.

Syntax
FIND_IN_SET(needle,haystack);

Ok, Let's have a table which stores the article with the tags and you need to find out value from comma separated tags.

articles table

article table

Now if you need to find out the articles that tagged into "php", you can use the "FIND_IN_SET" method in following way :

SELECT 
    title
FROM
    articles
WHERE
    FIND_IN_SET('php', tags);

FIND_IN_SET method is predefine method of MySQL.

In Laravel, You will use whereRaw() method to write your own raw SQL queries.

So you can use "find_in_set" method with whereRaw() in Laravel.

  1. $data = \DB::table("articles")
  2.      ->select("title")
  3.      ->whereRaw("find_in_set('php',tags)")
  4.      ->get();
Output :
Collection {#169 ▼
  #items: array:1 [▼
    0 => {#170 ▼
      +"title": "PHP Basic"
    }
  ]
}
