Laravel Seeder Inserts Only A Random Number Of Data And Then Fails

- 1 answer

I have this Seeder function. It takes all inserted users and then, for each of them, generate a random number (from 0 to 12) of profile picture.

public function run()
{
    foreach (App\User::all() as $user) {

        echo "Generating profile pic for $user->name ($user->id)... ";
        $profile_pics = factory(App\Image::class, rand(0, 12))->create();

        echo count($profile_pics) . " generated. ";
        echo " Saving... ";

        foreach ($profile_pics as $pp) {
            $user->profile_pics()->save(App\Image::find($pp->id));
        }

        echo "Saved\n";

    }
}

When I run it, some first random user's profile pic are correctly inserted. But after it fails.

Generating profile pic for Amara Abbott I (1)... 5 generated.  Saving... Saved
Generating profile pic for Major Crist (2)... 12 generated.  Saving... Saved
Generating profile pic for Imelda Hettinger IV (3)... 3 generated.  Saving... Saved
Generating profile pic for Tyrique Von (4)... 5 generated.  Saving... Saved
Generating profile pic for Keshawn Mills IV (5)... 1 generated.  Saving...

  [ErrorException]
  Trying to get property of non-object

See in my database, the last inserted profile picture is for the 65th user and not for the 5th.

I printed the id of the current processing profile pic, and apparently when number of profile pic is 1 then it fails.

How come ?

What is the result of this when only one element is created ?

factory(App\Image::class, rand(0, 12))->create();

Ah, I just found the solution myself.. The problem was in my ModelFactory.php I already look through all registered users. I did it once again in my Seed file. That is why it failed.

// ModelFactory.php
$factory->define(App\User::class, function (Faker\Generator $faker) {
    return [
        'user_id' => App\User::all()->random()->id,
        'base_url' => $faker->imageUrl(350, 350)
    ];
});

It would be great to be able to pass parameters to factories but unfortunately we can't. That way I would be able to generate a random number of profile pic per users. But here, ugh.
