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 Sample Data

When we install laravel setup, you should see a migration file 2014_10_12_000000_create_users_table.php inside /database/migrations folder for users table and a model file User.php inside /app/Models folder.

These files you will get by default after installation.

Run this given command to seed dummy data into users table.

$ php artisan tinker

>>> User::factory()->count(10)->create()

After seeding test data you will get data something like this –

Create Controller

Back to project terminal and run this command to create controller file.

$ php artisan make:controller UserController

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

<?php
  
namespace App\Http\Controllers;
  
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Models\User;
  
class UserController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     *
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function index(Request $request)
    {
        $users = User::paginate(10);
          
        return view('users', compact('users'));
    }
  
    /**
     * Write code for update
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function update(Request $request)
    {
        if ($request->ajax()) {
            User::find($request->pk)
                ->update([
                    $request->name => $request->value
                ]);
  
            return response()->json(['success' => true]);
        }
    }
}
