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 show($id)
    {
        $user = User::find($id);

        return response()->json($user);
    }
}

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.

Concept

To show a single user details on modal, fired an ajax request using GET request type.

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

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

    $.ajax({
        url: userURL,
        type: 'GET',
        dataType: 'json',
        success: function(data) {
            $('#userShowModal').modal('show');
            $('#user-id').text(data.id);
            $('#user-name').text(data.name);
            $('#user-email').text(data.email);
        }
    });

});

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

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 Show button, you will get this user’s detail modal.
