Let’s get started.

Laravel Installation

Open terminal and run this command to create a laravel project.

composer create-project laravel/laravel myblog

It will create a project folder with name myblog inside your local system.

To start the development server of laravel –

php artisan serve

URL: http://127.0.0.1:8000

Assuming laravel already installed inside your system.

Create Database & Connect

To create a database, either we can create via Manual tool of PhpMyadmin or by means of a mysql command.

CREATE DATABASE laravel_app;

To connect database with application, Open .env file from application root. Search for DB_ and update your details.

DB_CONNECTION=mysql
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1
DB_PORT=3306
DB_DATABASE=laravel_app
DB_USERNAME=root
DB_PASSWORD=root

Setup Model and Table Migration

Open project into terminal and run this command,

php artisan make:model Slider -m

It will create a model file app/Models/Slider.php and a migration file xxx_create_sliders_table.php inside /database/migrations folder.

Open migration file and write this complete code into it,

<?php
  
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
  
return new class extends Migration
{
    /**
     * Run the migrations.
     */
    public function up(): void
    {
        Schema::create('sliders', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->id();
            $table->string('title');
            $table->string('url');
            $table->timestamps();
        });
    }
  
    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     */
    public function down(): void
    {
        Schema::dropIfExists('sliders');
    }
};

Run Migration

Next, you need to migrate migration files,

php artisan migrate

Open app/Models/Slider.php and write this complete code into it,

<?php
  
namespace App\Models;
  
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
  
class Slider extends Model
{
    use HasFactory;

    protected $fillable = [
        'title',
        'url'
    ];
}

Create Database Seeder Class

Back to project terminal and run this command,

php artisan make:seeder SliderSeeder

It will create a file database/seeders/SliderSeeder.php.

Open file and write this complete code into it,

<?php
  
namespace Database\Seeders;
  
use Illuminate\Database\Console\Seeds\WithoutModelEvents;
use Illuminate\Database\Seeder;
use App\Models\Slider;
  
class SliderSeeder extends Seeder
{
    /**
     * Run the database seeds.
     */
    public function run(): void
    {
        $sliders = [
            [
                'title' => 'Image 1',
                'url' => 'https://picsum.photos/seed/picsum/700/400'
            ],
            [
                'title' => 'Image 2',
                'url' => 'https://picsum.photos/id/237/700/400'
            ],
            [
                'title' => 'Image 3',
                'url' => 'https://picsum.photos/id/200/700/400'
            ]
        ];
 
        foreach ($sliders as $key => $value) {
            Slider::create($value);
        }
    }
}

Next,

You have to run the seeder command to see this,

php artisan db:seed --class=SliderSeeder

Create Slider Controller

Next, you need to create a controller class,

php artisan make:controller SliderController

It will create a file SliderController.php inside /app/Http/Controllers folder.
