A awesome new feature coming to Laravel 5.3 is the ability to have multiple migration paths.
This feature comes in handy for all package developers and of course for all package users. Currently when a package wants to use migrations you have to use php artisan migrate to run your own migrations and php artisan migrate –provider”Package\ServiceProvider” to migrate package migration files.
Once Laravel 5.3 has been released you will be able to register multiple migrations paths like this:
from in a service provider for example. The end user can now migrate all the migrations while only using php artisan migrate. There is no need to look all the providers up to migrate package migrations.
