If you are new in laravel 5 and you want to determine email is exist or not then you can do it easily. IF you did use code php then we have to write long code and check but laravel provide it's own query builder so it is pretty easy. you can see following example how i check row is exists or not:


$user = User::where('email',Input::get('email'))->first();

if (is_null($user)) {

print_r("email is exists");


print_r("email is not exists");
