How better to work with money on mysql / laravel site ?

Recommended Posts

Working with money in php 8 /laravel 9 site for money fields I use integer in mysql db and custom cast app/Casts/MoneyCast.php like :



namespace App\Casts;

use Illuminate\Contracts\Database\Eloquent\CastsAttributes;

class MoneyCast implements CastsAttributes

    public function get($model, string $key, $value, array $attributes)
        return round(floatval($value) / 100, 2);

    public function set($model, string $key, $value, array $attributes)
        return floatval($value) * 100;


It seems quite good for me, but I found some referance to libraries


and wonder if some of which library is preferable for working in laravel ?
Would it be better or safer ?

Thanks in advance!
