In development, schema can be constantly changing. You don't want to have to
add a migration file for every single column modification/addition/removal, do
you? So just run this, then artisan migrate, then artisan db:seed. Or wrap those
up in a phing command (or another artisan command) and do them in one shot.
Install via composer: composer require --dev mikefunk/db-drop-tables:dev-master
Add the service provider to your app/config/app.php in the providers area: 'MikeFunk\DbDropTables\DbDropTablesServiceProvider',
This will not work until you add a connection for the mysql_information_schema database in app/config/database.php:
Call the command from within laravel with php artisan db:drop-tables. It will confirm that you want to drop all of your tables in your MySQL database. Want to skip the question and just do it? use --no-interaction or -n.
