In this tutorial, I would like to show you the laravel 8 crud operation example. we will implement a laravel 8 crud application for beginners. I will give you a simple example of how to create crud in laravel 8. you will learn crud operation in laravel 8.

So, let’s follow a few steps to create an example of the laravel 8 crud application tutorial.

Laravel 8 is just released by yesterday, Laravel 8 gives several new features and LTS support. So if you are new to laravel then this tutorial will help you create an insert update delete application in laravel 8.

You just need to follow a few steps and you will get basic crud stuff using controller, model, route, bootstrap 4, and blade.

In this tutorial, you will learn very basic crud operations with laravel's new version 6. I am going to show you step by step from scratch so, I will better understand if you are new to laravel.

Step 1: Install Laravel 8

first of all, we need to get a fresh Laravel 8 version application using below command, So open your terminal OR command prompt and run below command:

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Step 2: Database Configuration

In the second step, we will make database configuration for the example database name, username, password, etc for our crud application of laravel 8. So let’s open the .env file and fill in all details like as below:

.env

DB_CONNECTION=mysqlDB_HOST=127.0.0.1DB_PORT=3306DB_DATABASE=here your database name(blog)DB_USERNAME=here database username(root)DB_PASSWORD=here database password(root

Step 3: Create Migration

we are going to create a crud application for the product. so we have to create migration for “products” table using Laravel 8 PHP artisan command, so first fire bellow command:

php artisan make:migration create_products_table --create=products

After this command you will find one file in the following path “database/migrations” and you have to put the below code in your migration file for creating a products table.

<?phpuse Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;class CreateProductsTable extends Migration{/*** Run the migrations.** @return void*/public function up(){Schema::create('products', function (Blueprint $table) {$table->id();$table->string('name');$table->text('detail');$table->timestamps();});}/*** Reverse the migrations.** @return void*/public function down(){Schema::dropIfExists('products');}}

Now you have to run this migration by the following command:

php artisan migrate

Step 4: Add Resource Route

Here, we need to add a resource route for the product crud application. so open your “routes/web.php” file and add the following route.

routes/web.php

use App\Http\Controllers\ProductController;Route::resource('products', ProductController::class);

Step 5: Add Controller and Model

In this step, now we should create a new controller as ProductController. So run the below command and create a new controller. bellow controller for creating resource controller.

php artisan make:controller ProductController --resource --model=Product

After the below command, you will find a new file in this path “app/Http/Controllers/ProductController.php”.

In this controller will create seven methods by default as bellow methods:

1)index()

2)create()

3)store()

4)show()

5)edit()

6)update()

7)destroy()

So, let’s copy the below code and put it on the ProductController.php file.

app/Http/Controllers/ProductController.php

<?phpnamespace App\Http\Controllers;use App\Models\Product;use Illuminate\Http\Request;class ProductController extends Controller{/*** Display a listing of the resource.** @return \Illuminate\Http\Response*/public function index(){$products = Product::latest()->paginate(5);return view('products.index',compact('products'))->with('i', (request()->input('page', 1) - 1) * 5);}/*** Show the form for creating a new resource.** @return \Illuminate\Http\Response*/public function create(){return view('products.create');}/*** Store a newly created resource in storage.** @param  \Illuminate\Http\Request  $request* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response*/public function store(Request $request){$request->validate(['name' => 'required','detail' => 'required',]);Product::create($request->all());return redirect()->route('products.index')->with('success','Product created successfully.');}/*** Display the specified resource.** @param  \App\Product  $product* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response*/public function show(Product $product){return view('products.show',compact('product'));}/*** Show the form for editing the specified resource.** @param  \App\Product  $product* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response*/public function edit(Product $product){return view('products.edit',compact('product'));}/*** Update the specified resource in storage.** @param  \Illuminate\Http\Request  $request* @param  \App\Product  $product* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response*/public function update(Request $request, Product $product){$request->validate(['name' => 'required','detail' => 'required',]);$product->update($request->all());return redirect()->route('products.index')->with('success','Product updated successfully');}/*** Remove the specified resource from storage.** @param  \App\Product  $product* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response*/public function destroy(Product $product){$product->delete();return redirect()->route('products.index')->with('success','Product deleted successfully');}}

Ok, so after running the below command you will find “app/Models/Product.php” and put the below content in the Product.php file:

app/Models/Product.php

<?phpnamespace App\Models;use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;class Product extends Model{use HasFactory;protected $fillable = ['name', 'detail'];}

Step 6: Add Blade Files

In the last step. In this step, we have to create just blade files. So mainly we have to create a layout file and then create a new folder “products” then create blade files of the crud app. So finally you have to create the following bellow blade file:

1) layout.blade.php

2) index.blade.php

3) create.blade.php

4) edit.blade.php

5) show.blade.php

So let’s just create the following file and put bellow code.

resources/views/products/layout.blade.php

Now we are ready to run our crud application example with laravel 8 so run the below command for a quick run:

php artisan serve

Now you can open the below URL on your browser:

http://localhost:8000/products

You will see the layout as like below:

List Page:
