Some of Pre Request

You need to know how to make new database and table in laravel before reading this tutorial.

If do not know about this than consider reading this laravel new database and table tutorial first.

Now follow all the below steps.

Step 1. Creating a Table

Our primary need for using an eloquent in laravel is to create a model class which will represent our database table.

Now run the below command

Above command will generate one migration file in database->migrations directory.

Migration file for this table is as the below

I have added two new below lines in Schema::create() function.

Above two lines will create two columns “name” and “description” in the devices table.

Now run the following command

So we have created a fresh new table named (devices) with two extra columns : “name” and “description

Now add some rows in this table. I have added two rows. Look at the below image

laravel get all data records
So now we have a table with two rows. Now let us fetch these records.

Step 2. Making Model

We need a model class which will represent our devices table.

Name of this model class should be the singular form of the table name. So in our case model name should be “Device”

Now run the below command to make Device model.

With the help of above command, System will generate new file Device.php in app directory. Source code for this model class is as the below

Step 3. Creating Controller Class

Now it is time create an controller class. For this first open the web.php file which is inside routes folder.

Code for this web.php is as the below

Look at the last line, you need to add this line in your web.php file.

This line is saying to system that we call homepage/devices in browser, system should execute the index function in the DevicesController.php file.

Now to create DevicesController.php file hit the below command

Now system must have created a DevicesController.php file in app->Http->Controllers directory.

Source code snippet for this file is as the below

Now, look at the below line

variable $devices will get all the values from the devices table.

\App\Device is giving reference to the Model class Device.php

Now consider below line

Above line will return the view file called index.blade.php file in devices folder.

compact(‘devices’) will pass $devices variable in index.blade.php file.

So we need to create both devices folder and index.blade.php file.

Make a new folder named devices under resources->views directory.

Inside this devices folder, make a new file named index.blade.php

Step 4. Final Writings

Now in your index.blade.php file, add the below source code

Consider the below code

h1 will simply print a header.

Second line is iterating one foreach loop.

Then we will use <li> tag to put results in list items. We will simple print $device meaning is that system will print all the records from devices table.

Now read the below code block

As the <h1> tag suggests, we will print only the name column of the devices table using the above code.

Now go through the below snippet

We will fetch all the description items and then we will arrange them in the list items.

Now finally, run the below command

When above command gives you the address, run it in browser. You need to run address/devices in browser.

My address is and you should get the output like output video.
