In this tutorial, I will show you how to use the Datatables in the Laravel based project with
yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle package. For this tutorial, we gonna use Laravel 5.8 version but the Datatable package usage steps will be pretty simpler with other versions of Laravel framework.
As a first step lets setup a brand new Laravel project with below composer command.
composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel datatablesExample
Above command will create a Laravel project with in a folder called datatablesExample
After creating the project, we need to install
yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle composer package with below shown composer command. This package is created to handle server-side works of DataTables jQuery Plugin via AJAX option by using Eloquent ORM, Fluent Query Builder or Collection.
composer require yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle
Now register provider and facade in the application, to do that open your
config/app.php file and add the following lines to the providers and aliases array as shown below.
..... 'providers' => [ .... Yajra\DataTables\DataTablesServiceProvider::class, ] 'aliases' => [ .... 'DataTables' => Yajra\DataTables\Facades\DataTables::class, ] .....
