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.

Setup Form Data Controller

Back to project terminal and run this command to create a controller class file,

php artisan make:controller BlogController

It will create a file i.e BlogController.php inside /app/Http/Controllers folder.

Open file and write this complete code into it,

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

//use App\Models\Blog;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\View\View;

class BlogController extends Controller
{
    public function index(): View
    {
        return view('blog-form');
    }

    public function submitData(Request $request)
    {
        $validatedData = $request->validate([
            'title' => 'required',
            'description' => 'required',
            'author_name' => 'required'
        ]);

        // $blog = new Blog();

        // $blog->title = $request->title;
        // $blog->description = $request->description;
        // $blog->author_name = $request->author_name;

        // $blog->save();

        return redirect('form')->with('success', 'Data saved successfully!')->withInput();
    }
}

Route::get('form', [BlogController::class, 'index']);
Route::post('submit', [BlogController::class, 'submitData'])->name("blog.submit");
//...

Application Testing

Run this command into project terminal to start development server,

php artisan serve

URL: http://127.0.0.1:8000/form

It will open form. Once you submit form with data. Form will be submitted and redirect back with inputted values.
