Compared to other packages


This package intends to provide you with the necessary tooling for adding multi-tenancy manually to your application. It will give you model traits, classes for creating tenant databases, and some additional tooling.

It would have been a good option for when you want to implement multi-tenancy manually, but:

  • It isn't being actively developed — no features have been added in the past ~year
  • It makes testing a nightmare.

    Over the last few months, I've received this feedback:

    But, I still can't run any tests in Hyn, and had some queuing problems I'm still nervous about.

    At the moment, our app is using latest Laravel and latest hyn/tenancy. The only thing I don't like about it is that tests are extremely fragile to the point where I don't dare mess with anything for risk of breaking everything

    By the way, this package is awesome! It's so much better than the hyn alternative which is a bit of a mess in my opinion... It is a pity that I did not come across it in the first place.

    I'm not sharing this to intentionally make hyn/multi-tenancy bad, but be very careful if you decide to go with that package.


This package intends to provide you with a framework for building your own multi-tenancy implementation. The documentation is quite lacking, so I couldn't get a too detailed idea of what it does, but from my understanding, it gives you things like events which you can use to build your own multi-tenancy logic.

If you want the absolute highest flexibility and would otherwise build your own implementation, looking into this package might be useful.

However, if you're looking for a package that will help you make a multi-tenant project quickly, this is probably not the right choice.


This package is a very simple implementation of multi-tenancy.

It does the same thing as stancl/tenancy v2, but with far fewer features out of the box.

The only benefit I see in this package compared to v2 of stancl/tenancy is that it uses Eloquent out of the box, which makes things like Cashier integration easier. But, that's irrelevant since we're in v3 already and v3 uses Eloquent.

So, I suggest you consider this package only if you value simplicity for some reason, and aren't building anything with any amount of complexity and need for "business features".


In my — biased, of course, but likely true as well — opinion, this package is the absolute best choice for the vast majority of applications.

The only packages I'd realistically consider are mine (of course) and tenancy/tenancy if you need something very custom, though I don't see the reason for that in 99% of applications.

This package attempts to be about as flexible as tenancy/tenancy, but also provide you with the absolute largest amount of out-of-the-box features and other tooling. It continues its path as the first package to have been using the automatic approach with adding many more features — most of which are "enterprise" features, in v3.

To give you an incomplete-but-good-enough list of features, this package supports:

  • Multi-database tenancy
    • creating databases
      • MySQL
      • PostgreSQL
      • PostgreSQL (schema mode)
      • SQLite
    • creating database users
    • automatically switching the database
    • CLI commands, with more features than e.g. spatie/laravel-multitenancy
      • migrate
      • migrate:fresh
      • seed
  • Single-database tenancy
    • model traits with global scopes
  • Rich event system
  • Very high testability
  • Automatic tenancy
    • tenancy bootstrappers to switch:
      • database connections
      • redis connections
      • cache tags
      • filesystem roots
      • queue context
  • Manual tenancy
    • model traits
  • Out of the box tenant identification
    • domain identification
    • subdomain identification
    • path identification
    • request data identification
    • middleware classes for the methods above
    • CLI argument identification
    • manual identification (e.g. in tinker)
  • Integration with many packages
    • spatie/laravel-medialibrary
    • spatie/laravel-activitylog
    • Livewire
    • Laravel Nova
      • for managing tenants
      • for using inside the tenant application
    • Laravel Horizon
    • Laravel Telescope
    • Laravel Passport
  • Syncing users (or any other database resources) between multiple tenant databases
