i would like to share with you how to create drag and drop cards using jquery ui and also we will make it dynamic using laravel 6. so basically we will save data into database using jquery ajax. we will use bootstrap for just make it better layout. we require to use jquery ui for make row. we will use cdn jquery ui or css.

So just follow below step to done this example.

Step 1 : Install Laravel 6 Application

we are going from scratch, So we require to get fresh Laravel application using bellow command, So open your terminal OR command prompt and run bellow command:

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

Database Configuration

In this step, we require to make database configuration, you have to add following details on your .env file.

1.Database Username

1.Database Password

1.Database Name

In .env file also available host and port details, you can configure all details as in your system, So you can put like as bellow:

following path: .env





Step 2: Create ajax Item Table and Model

In this step we have to create migration for Items table using Laravel 6 php artisan command, so first fire bellow command:

php artisan make:model Item -m

After this command you have to put bellow code in your migration file for create Item table.

following path:/database/migrations/2020_01_10_102325_create_items_table.php


use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

class CreateItemsTable extends Migration



* Run the migrations.


* @return void


public function up()


Schema::create('items', function (Blueprint $table) {









* Reverse the migrations.


* @return void


public function down()





Now we require to run migration be bellow command:

php artisan migrate

After you have to put bellow code in your model file for create Item table.

following path:/app/Item.php


namespace App;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Item extends Model



* The attributes that are mass assignable.


* @var array


protected $fillable = [

'title', 'order', 'status',



Step 4: Create Route

In this is step we need to create route for ajax update items status layout file and another one for post request.open following fille path

following path:/routes/web.php

Route::get('/', array('as'=> 'front.home', 'uses' => 'ItemController@itemView'));

Route::post('/update-items', array('as'=> 'update.items', 'uses' => 'ItemController@updateItems'));

Step 5: Create Controller

here this step now we should create new controller as ItemController,So run bellow command for generate new controller

php artisan make:controller ItemController

now this step, this controller will manage layout and ajax update items status layout with post request,bellow content in controller file.following fille path

following path:/app/Http/Controllers/ItemController.php


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use App\Item;

class ItemController extends Controller


public function itemView()


$panddingItem = Item::where('status',0)->orderBy('order')->get();

$completeItem = Item::where('status',1)->orderBy('order')->get();

return view('dragAndDroppable',compact('panddingItem','completeItem'));


public function updateItems(Request $request)


$input = $request->all();

foreach ($input['panddingArr'] as $key => $value) {

$key = $key+1;



foreach ($input['completeArr'] as $key => $value) {

$key = $key+1;



return response()->json(['status'=>'success']);



Step 6: Create View

In Last step, let's create dragAndDroppable.blade.php(resources/views/dragAndDroppable.blade.php) for layout and we will write design code here and also Drag and Droppable Cards and ajax to store data items status, So put following code:

following path:resources/views/dragAndDroppable.blade.php

<!doctype html>

<html lang="en">


<meta charset="utf-8">
