Don’t Filter by NULL in Collections in Laravel


You can filter by NULL in Eloquent, but if you're filtering the collection further - filter by empty string, there's no "null" in that field anymore.

// This works
$messages = Message::where('read_at is null')->get();


// Won’t work - will return 0 messages
$messages = Message::all();
$unread_messages = $messages->where('read_at is null')->count();


// Will work
$unread_messages = $messages->where('read_at', '')->count();
