How to compare two Carbon Timestamps?

First, Eloquent automatically converts it’s timestamps (created_at, updated_at) into carbon objects. You could just use updated_at to get that nice feature, or specify edited_at in your model in the $dates property:

protected $dates = ['edited_at'];

Now back to your actual question. Carbon has a bunch of comparison functions:

  • eq() equals
  • ne() not equals
  • gt() greater than
  • gte() greater than or equals
  • lt() less than
  • lte() less than or equals


    // edited at is newer than created at
