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

Create Migration File

Open project into terminal and run this command,

$ php artisan make:migration create_products_table

It will create a file i.e 2023_09_11_145601_create_products_table.php inside /database/migrations folder.

Open 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('products', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->id();
            $table->string('name')->nullable();
            $table->longText('description')->nullable();
            $table->float('amount')->nullable();
            $table->boolean('status')->default(0);
            $table->integer('stock')->default(0);
            $table->timestamps();
        });
    }

    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     */
    public function down(): void
    {
        Schema::dropIfExists('products');
    }
};

Next,

Run Migration

We need to create table inside database.

$ php artisan migrate

This command will create table “products” inside database.

Setup Model

Open project terminal and run this command,

$ php artisan make:model Product

It will create Product.php file inside /app/Models folder.

Open file and write this code into it,

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Product extends Model
{
    use HasFactory;

    protected $fillable = [
        'name', 'amount', 'description', 'status', 'stock'
    ];
}

Livewire Installation (Composer Package)

Back to project terminal and run this command to install livewire inside application,

$ composer require livewire/livewire

Livewire Form Wizard Settings

Open Wizard.php file from /app/Livewire folder and write this following code into it.

<?php

namespace App\Livewire;

use Livewire\Component;
use App\Models\Product;

class Wizard extends Component
{
    public $currentStep = 1;
    public $name, $amount, $description, $status = 1, $stock;
    public $successMessage = '';

    public function render()
    {
        return view('livewire.wizard');
    }

    public function firstStepSubmit()
    {
        $validatedData = $this->validate([
            'name' => 'required|unique:products',
            'amount' => 'required|numeric',
            'description' => 'required',
        ]);

        $this->currentStep = 2;
    }

    public function secondStepSubmit()
    {
        $validatedData = $this->validate([
            'stock' => 'required',
            'status' => 'required',
        ]);

        $this->currentStep = 3;
    }

    public function submitForm()
    {
        Product::create([
            'name' => $this->name,
            'amount' => $this->amount,
            'description' => $this->description,
            'stock' => $this->stock,
            'status' => $this->status,
        ]);

        $this->successMessage = 'Product created successfully.';

        $this->clearForm();

        $this->currentStep = 1;
    }

    public function back($step)
    {
        $this->currentStep = $step;
    }

    public function clearForm()
    {
        $this->name = '';
        $this->amount = '';
        $this->description = '';
        $this->stock = '';
        $this->status = 1;
    }
}

Open wizard.blade.php blade template file from /resources/views/livewire folder and write this code into it.
