Step 1: Download Laravel Fresh Setup

Use the following command to install the laravel fresh setup. So open your terminal OR command prompt and run following command:

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

Step 2: Setup Database Credentials

After successfully download laravel Application, Go to your project root directory and open .env file. Then set up database credential as follow:

  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: Make Migration & Model

Use the following command to create a migration file and model for our post table:

php artisan make:model Post -m

after that, open your posts migration file and paste the following code:

Schema::create('posts', function (Blueprint $table) {
     $table->bigIncrements('id');
     $table->string('title');
     $table->timestamps();
});

Again open your terminal and run the php artisan migrate to migrate our tables into your database:

php artisan migrate

After that, open Post model and update the following code into your app/Post.php model file:

namespace App;
use App\Events\PostCreated;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
class Post extends Model
{
    protected $guarded = [];
}

Step 4: Add Routes

Add the following routes into your route file. So go app/routes/web.php and update the following routes:

routes/web.php

Route::get('/post', 'PostController@index')->name('post';
Route::post('/post', 'PostController@createPost');

Step 5:  Make Controller By Command

Now open your terminal and run the following command:

php artisan make:controller PostController

This command will create a controller that name PostController inside the controller folder.

Next, open it app/Https/Controller/PostController.php and update the following methods into your PostController file:

namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use App\Post;
use App\Events\PostCreated;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
class PostController extends Controller
{
    
    public function index()
    {
       return view('post');
    }
    public function createPost(Request $request)
    {
        $post = new Post;
        $post->title = $request->title;
        $post->save();
        return response()->json([
            'message' => 'New post created'
        ]);
    }
}

Step 6: Install Vue Js dependency

Now, go inside the project folder and install the frontend dependencies using the following command.

npm install

now open webpack.mix.js file and update the following code into your file. Make an asstes folder inside resources folder and copy js and sass folder inside it. Thats all. We need it to setup our laravel mix.

webpack.mix.js

const mix = require('laravel-mix');
mix.js('resources/assets/js/app.js', 'public/js/app.js')
    .sass('resources/assets/sass/app.scss', 'public/css/app.css');

Next Go to resources/assets/js/components/ folder. And create a new components name PostComponent.vue.

Then update the following code into your PostComponent.vue file:

<template>
    <div class="container">
        <div class="row justify-content-center">
            <div class="col-md-8">
                <div class="card">
                    <div class="card-header">Create new post</div>
                    <div class="card-body">
                        <p id="success"></p>
                        <form @submit.prevent="addNewPost">
                            <input type="text" name="title" v-model="newPost">
                            <input type="submit" value="Submit">
                        </form>
                    </div>
                </div>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
</template>
<script>
    export default {
        
        data(){
            return {
              newPost: ''
            }
        },
        methods: {
            addNewPost(){
                axios.post('/post',{title: this.newPost, user_id:userId})
                .then((response)=>{
                $('#success').html(response.data.message)
                })
            }
        }
    }
</script>
 

The above code is to send form data to controller using axios post request in laravel.

Next, Go to resources/assets/js then open app.js file and intialize vue js components in this file.

So open app.js file and update the following code into your app.js file:

require('./bootstrap');
window.Vue = require('vue');
Vue.component('post-component', require('./components/PostComponent.vue').default);
const app = new Vue({
    el: '#app',
});

Step 7: Create blade file and layout

Now, Open resources/layouts/app.blade.php and update the following code into it:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="csrf-token" content="{{ csrf_token() }}">
    <title>{{ config('app.name', 'Laravel') }}</title>
    <link href="{{ mix('css/app.css') }}" rel="stylesheet">
    <title>Send form data with vue js in laravel</title>
</head>
<body>
    
    <div id="app">
    <div class="py-4">
        @yield('content')
    </div>
    
    </div>
    <script src="{{ mix('js/app.js') }}" defer></script>
</body>
</html> 

Next, resources/views/ and create a new blade view file name post.blade.php.

And update the following code into your post.blade.php view file:

@extends('layouts.app')
@section('content')
  <post-component></post-component>
           
@endsection  

Step 8: Run Development Server

Now everything is set to go. Now just we have to compile our all javascript file. so run below command.

npm run dev 
//or
npm run watch

Now you are ready to run this app, so hit the below URL into your browser:

http://localhost:8000/post
