Hello readers, am back with another tutorial to discuss about performing Create Read Update Delete(CRUD) operations in laravel using ajax.
In previous tutorials like integrating bootgrid plugin there are CRUD operations but they are without ajax, every time the operation is performed the page may reload and show the information. But here all the CRUD operations are performed without any page reload by using ajax and some handy jquery.
You can watch the video on Youtube here.
Here we will go through a simple example to cover all the CRUD operations.
- Create operation: A simple text field to add some name and save to the database.
- Read Operation: Shows all the created items which are stored in the database.
- Update Operation: Edits an item which is displayed and then updating the same to the database.
- Delete Operation: Delete an item completely from the database.

A simple text field with add button which is an ajax call to a controller.

Delete Operation using ajax :
Similar to edit operation. when the delete button is clicked with its respected row, a modal pops up, and the delete button in the modal deletes the item from the database and finally updating the view using jQuery.
