  • Step 2 – Connecting App to Database
  • Step 3 – Build Migration & Model
  • Step 4 – Add Routes
  • Step 5 – Create Controller Using Artisan Command
  • Step 6 – Create Blade View
  • Step 7 – Run Development Server
  • Step 8 – Test This App

Step 1 – Install Laravel App

First of all, open terminal and execute the following command on terminal to install or download Laravel 8 app:

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

Step 2 – Connecting App to Database

In this step, open .env and configure database details for connecting app to database:

 DB_CONNECTION=mysql 
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1
DB_PORT=3306
DB_DATABASE=here your database name here
DB_USERNAME=here database username here
DB_PASSWORD=here database password here

Step 3 – Build Migration & Model

In this step, execute the following command on terminal to create event model and migration file:

php artisan make:model Event -m

This command will create one model name Event and also create one migration file for the Events table.

After successfully run the command, Navigate to database/migrations folder and open create_events_table.php file. Then update the following code into create_events_table.php file, as follow:

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

class CreateEventsTable extends Migration
{
    /**
     * Run the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function up()
    {
        Schema::create('events', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->increments('id');
            $table->string('title');
            $table->dateTime('start');
            $table->dateTime('end');
            $table->timestamps();
        });
    }

    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function down()
    {
        Schema::dropIfExists('events');
    }
}

Now, execute the following command on terminal to create the tables into database:

php artisan migrate

Step 4 – Add Routes

In this step, Create two routes and add in web.php file. So, visit /routes directory and open web.php file. Then add the following routes into it:

use App\Http\Controllers\FullCalendarController;


Route::get('ckeditor', [FullCalendarController::class, 'index']);
Route::post('fullcalendar/create', [FullCalendarController::class, 'create']);
Route::post('fullcalendar/update', [FullCalendarController::class, 'update']);
Route::post('fullcalendar/delete', [FullCalendarController::class, 'destroy']);

Step 5 – Create Controller Using Artisan Command

In this step, execute the following command on terminal to create a controller name FullCalendarController.php file:

php artisan make:controller FullCalendarController

After successfully create controller, visit app/http/controllers directory and open FullCalendarController.php file.

<?php
  
namespace App\Http\Controllers;
  
use App\Models\Event;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Redirect,Response;
  
class FullCalenderController extends Controller
{

    public function index()
    {
        if(request()->ajax()) 
        {

         $start = (!empty($_GET["start"])) ? ($_GET["start"]) : ('');
         $end = (!empty($_GET["end"])) ? ($_GET["end"]) : ('');

         $data = Event::whereDate('start', '>=', $start)->whereDate('end',   '<=', $end)->get(['id','title','start', 'end']);
         return Response::json($data);
        }
        return view('fullcalendar');
    }
   
  
    public function create(Request $request)
    {  
        $insertArr = [ 'title' => $request->title,
                       'start' => $request->start,
                       'end' => $request->end
                    ];
        $event = Event::insert($insertArr);   
        return Response::json($event);
    }
    

    public function update(Request $request)
    {   
        $where = array('id' => $request->id);
        $updateArr = ['title' => $request->title,'start' => $request->start, 'end' => $request->end];
        $event  = Event::where($where)->update($updateArr);

        return Response::json($event);
    } 


    public function destroy(Request $request)
    {
        $event = Event::where('id',$request->id)->delete();
  
        return Response::json($event);
    }    


}

Step 6 – Create Blade view

In this step, Visit the resources/views directory and create a blade view file named fullcalendar.blade.php. And add the following code into it:

eventClick: function (event) {
var deleteMsg = confirm("Do you really want to delete?");

url: SITEURL + 'fullcalendar/delete',
data: "&id=" + event.id,
success: function (response) {
if(parseInt(response) > 0) {
$('#calendar').fullCalendar('removeEvents', event.id);
displayMessage("Deleted Successfully");

});
}
