We will create laravel project using composer. So, please make sure your system should have composer installed. If not, may be this article will help you to Install composer in system.

Implementing SweetAlert2 jQuery Plugin

Let’s create a simple application where we will see the step by step implementation of sweetalert2 jQuery plugin files.

Create Route

Routes can be configured into web.php which is at /routes folder.

//... other routes

Route::get("sweetalert-notification", [MessageNotificationController::class, "showSweetAlertMessages"]);

Create Controller

$ php artisan make:controller MessageNotificationController

Open MessageNotificationController.php from /app/Http/Controllers

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class MessageNotificationController extends Controller
{
  public function showSweetAlertMessages(){

     // Flash messages settings
    
     session()->flash("success", "This is success message");

     session()->flash("warning", "This is warning message");

     session()->flash("info", "This is information message");

     session()->flash("error", "This is error message");

     return view("sweetalert-notification");
   }
}

Create Blade Template File

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.5.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/sweetalert2@9.17.2/dist/sweetalert2.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/sweetalert2@9.17.2/dist/sweetalert2.min.css">


<script>
$(function(){

    @if(Session::has('success'))
        Swal.fire({
        icon: 'success',
        title: 'Great!',
        text: '{{ Session::get("success") }}'
    })
    @endif
});
</script>

Above code is for success notification block only. If you need to display for Error, Warning and Information.

For Error Block

<script>
$(function(){

    @if(Session::has('error'))
    Swal.fire({
        icon: 'error',
        title: 'Oops...',
        text: '{{ Session::get("error") }}'
    })
    @endif
});
</script>

For Warning Block

<script>
$(function(){

    @if(Session::has('warning'))
    Swal.fire({
        icon: 'warning',
        title: 'Oops...',
        text: '{{ Session::get("warning") }}'
    })
    @endif
});
</script>

For Information Block

<script>
$(function(){

    @if(Session::has('info'))
    Swal.fire({
        icon: 'info',
        title: 'Oops...',
        text: '{{ Session::get("info") }}'
    })
    @endif
});
</script>

Right now we are displaying these notification messages without any operations like insert, update or anything but you can use it for your application notifications.


Application Testing

Run this command into project terminal to start development server,

php artisan serve

Open up the URL – http://127.0.0.1:8000/sweetalert-notification

For Error
