Laravel 9 Ajax FullCalendar Tutorial with Example

Hi all,

Today, I explain laravel 9 ajax full calendar tutorial with example. I will show to you, how you can integrate a full calendar in laravel 9 application. I have written step-by-step instructions of laravel 9 FullCalendar ajax.

This comprehensive guide, step by step, explains how to add and integrate FullCalendar in Laravel not only but also how to use FullCalendar in the Laravel 9 application.

Step 1: Download Laravel


Let us begin the tutorial by installing a new laravel application. if you have already created the project, then skip following step.

composer create-project laravel/laravel example-app

Step 2: Add Migration and Model

In this step create migration and model for events table, fire this command:

php artisan make:model Events -m

After this command you will find one file in following path "database/migrations" and you have to put bellow code in your migration file for create events table.

Database/Migrations/create_events_table.php

<?php

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

return new class extends Migration

{

/**

* Run the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function up()

{

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

$table->id();

$table->string('title');

$table->date('start');

$table->date('end');

$table->timestamps();

});

}

/**

* Reverse the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function down()

{

Schema::dropIfExists('events');

}

};

Then after, run migration:

php artisan migrate

Now that you have created the event model, type your code into it. Copy the following model to write the code. This code you put in your Event.php model.

app/Models/Events.php

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Events extends Model

{

use HasFactory;

/**

* The attributes that are mass assignable.

*

* @var array

*/

protected $fillable = [

'title', 'start', 'end'

];

}

Step 3: Add Controller

Now require to create new FullCalenderController for index and ajax method so first run bellow command :

php artisan make:controller FullCalenderController

After this command you can find FullCalenderController.php file in your app/Http/Controllers directory. open FullCalenderController.php file and put bellow code in that file.

app/Http/Controllers/FullCalenderController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use App\Models\Events;

class FullCalenderController extends Controller

{

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function index(Request $request)

{

if($request->ajax()) {

$data = Event::whereDate('start', '>=', $request->start)

->whereDate('end', '<=', $request->end)

->get(['id', 'title', 'start', 'end']);

return response()->json($data);

}

return view('fullcalender');

}

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function ajax(Request $request)

{

switch ($request->type) {

case 'add':

$event = Event::create([

'title' => $request->title,

'start' => $request->start,

'end' => $request->end,

]);

return response()->json($event);

break;

case 'update':

$event = Event::find($request->id)->update([

'title' => $request->title,

'start' => $request->start,

'end' => $request->end,

]);

return response()->json($event);

break;

case 'delete':

$event = Event::find($request->id)->delete();

return response()->json($event);

break;

default:

# code...

break;

}

}

}

Step 4: Add Routes

In this step we will add routes and controller file so first add bellow route in your routes.php file.

routes/web.php

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\FullCalenderController;

/*

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

| Web Routes

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

|

| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These

| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which

| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!

|

*/

Route::controller(FullCalenderController::class)->group(function(){

Route::get('fullcalender', 'index');

Route::post('fullcalenderAjax', 'ajax');

});

Step 5: Add Blade File

Ok, in this last step we will create fullcalender.blade.php file for display fullcalender and we will write js code for crud app. So first create fullcalender.blade.php file and put bellow code:

resources/views/fullcalender.blade.php
