  2. Left join
  3. Right join
  4. Outer join
  5. Cross join

Inner join

Laravel provide join() method to do inner join, here have example.

$users = DB::table('users')
            ->join('contacts', 'users.id', '=', 'contacts.user_id')
            ->join('orders', 'users.id', '=', 'orders.user_id')
            ->select('users.*', 'contacts.phone', 'orders.price')
            ->get();

Left join

Laravel provide leftJoin() method to do left join betwee tables.

$users = DB::table('users')
            ->leftJoin('posts', 'users.id', '=', 'posts.user_id')
            ->get();

Right join

Laravel provide rightJoin() method to do left join betwee tables.

$users = DB::table('users')
            ->rightJoin('posts', 'users.id', '=', 'posts.user_id')
            ->get();

Laravel provide fourth parameter of the join method is $type, which when not specified, defaults to the value inner.

For inner or outer you can use join() method.

$users = DB::table('users')

            ->select('users.*', 'contacts.phone', 'orders.price')
            ->get();

Cross join

Laravel provide crossJoin () method to do cross join betwee tables, Cross joins generate a cartesian product between the first table and the joined table.


$sizes = DB::table('sizes')
            ->crossJoin('colors')
