Datatable in Laravel 5

What is Datatable? Datatables is basically a jQuery plugin that allows you to add advanced interaction controls to your HTML tables. Things like search, pagination, sorting, and ordering. Datatables allows you to add those kinds of functionality into your tables.

In this blog we are using a Laravel package called Yajra

Yajra allows us to easily create Datatables which uses the data returned from a model as its data source.

Quick Install Yajra package:

First thing that you need to do is to add the following in your composer.json file:

"require": {
  "yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle": "~6.0"

Once you’re done with that, execute composer update from your terminal to install Yajra.


directly install from your terminal or cmd:

composer require yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle:~6.0

Once finished installing Yajra, then automatically add the service provider for Yajra into the providers array in your app.php file inside the app/config directory of your Laravel installation: 


Once that’s done, you can now create the main configuration file by executing the following from the terminal:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=datatables

And that's done..! Start building out some awesome DataTables!

Summary: You can use Yajra datatable then you can use search, pagination, sorting functionality. Datatables depends on jQuery so you also need to include that before including datatables and for ecommerce website development firm contact us.
