WhereHas() In Laravel

Let’s get started quickly
You may want to base your results on the existence of a relationship. For example, imagine that you want to retrieve all projects that have project_one starting with ,CSS. To do this, you can pass the name of the relationship to the whereHas() method and specify additional query constraints for has queries

Project::whereHas('project_one', function (Builder $query) {
    $query->where('title', 'like', 'CSS%');

use with() method with WhereHas()

Project::with('project_one')->whereHas('project_one', function (Builder $query) {
       $query->where('title', 'like', 'CSS%');

Now, Let’s be more professional

public function scopeWithWhereHas($query, $relation, $constraint){
   return $query->whereHas($relation, $constraint)->with([$relation => $constraint]);


Project::withWhereHas('project_one', fn($query) =>
     $query->where('title', 'like', 'CSS%')

Since this query builder may be needed in many Models in AppServiceProvider::boot()

use IlluminateDatabaseEloquentBuilder;
Builder::macro('withWhereHas', fn($relation, $constraint) =>
   $this->whereHas($relation, $constraint)->with([$relation => $constraint]);

I hope you enjoy the code.
