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

Generate Fake Data Using Factory

As you install laravel 9 setup, you should see these files –

  • User.php a model file inside /app/Models folder.
  • UserFactory.php a factory file inside /database/factories folder.

We will use concept of factory to seed dummy data to this application. But first you need to migrate your application and create users table into your database.

$ php artisan tinker

It will open tinker shell to execute commands. Copy and paste this command and execute to create test data.

>>> User::factory()->count(20)->create()

It will generate 20 fake rows of users into table.

Create Controller

Next,

We need to create a controller file.

$ php artisan make:controller UserController

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

Open UserController.php and write this complete code into it.

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Models\User;

class UserController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function index()
    {
        $users = User::paginate(10);

        return view('users', compact('users'));
    }

    /**
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     *
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function delete($id)
    {
        User::find($id)->delete();

        return response()->json(['success' => 'User Deleted Successfully!']);
    }
}

Create Blade Layout File

Go to /resources/views folder and create a file with name users.blade.php

Open users.blade.php and write this complete code into it.

            var userURL = $(this).data('url');
            var trObj = $(this);

            if (confirm("Are you sure you want to delete this user?") == true) {
                $.ajax({
                    url: userURL,
                    type: 'DELETE',

                        //alert(data.success);
                        trObj.parents("tr").remove();
                    }
                });
            }

        });

    });

Concept

To delete a single user row, fired an ajax request using DELETE request type.

$(document).on('click', '.delete-user', function() {

    var userURL = $(this).data('url');
    var trObj = $(this);

    if (confirm("Are you sure you want to delete this user?") == true) {
        $.ajax({
            url: userURL,
            type: 'DELETE',
            dataType: 'json',
            success: function(data) {
                //alert(data.success);
                trObj.parents("tr").remove();
            }
        });
    }

});

Add Route

Open web.php from /routes folder and add these route into it.

//...
use App\Http\Controllers\UserController;

//...

Route::get('users', [UserController::class, 'index']);
Route::delete('users/{id}', [UserController::class, 'delete'])->name('users.delete');

Application Testing

Open project to terminal and type the command to start development server

$ php artisan serve

URL: http://127.0.0.1:8000/users

When you click on any row – Delete button. It will ask for confirmation, if press Ok and then delete from table.
