Laravel with Packages | Laravel Fullcalendar Example Tutorial

Hello Dev,

In this tutorial, we will go over the demonstration of the laravel fullcalendar example. We will look at an example of laravel full calendar crud example. let’s discuss laravel full calendar ajax. this example will help you laravel a full calendar event click. You just need to do some steps to do the laravel full calendar tutorial.

you can easily use the full calendar in laravel 6, laravel 7, laravel 8, and laravel 9 versions using this tutorial.

In this example, we will simply create a crud application with the full calendar so you can easily create events, and edit events by dragging and dropping, and deleting events. in this example, we will create an events table with a start, edit date, and title column. then you can add, edit and delete that event with the database.

Let’s follow a few steps to make it a laravel full calendar crud app. you can see the below preview:

Preview:

Step 1: Install Laravel 8

In this step, if you haven’t a laravel 8 application setup, we have to get a fresh laravel 8 application. So run the below command and get a clean fresh laravel 8 application.

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

Step 2: Create Migration and Model

In this step, we have to create migration for events table using Laravel 8 PHP artisan command, so first fire bellow command:

php artisan make:migration create_events_table

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

<?php

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

class CreateEventsTable 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, simply run the migration:

php artisan migrate

After creating the “events” table you should create an Event model for items, so first create a file in this path “app/Models/Event.php” and put the below content in the Event.php file:

app/Models/Event.php

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Event extends Model
{
use HasFactory;

protected $fillable = [
'title', 'start', 'end'
];
}

Step 3: Create Routes

In this step, we will add routes and controller files so first add the below 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::get('fullcalender', [FullCalenderController::class, 'index']);
Route::post('fullcalenderAjax', [FullCalenderController::class, 'ajax']);

Step 4: Create Controller File

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 the FullCalenderController.php file in your app/Http/Controllers directory. open the FullCalenderController.php file and put the below code in that file.

app/Http/Controllers/FullCalenderController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Models\Event;

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 5: Create Blade File

Ok, in this last step we will create a fullcalender.blade.php file to display the full calendar and we will write the js code for the crud app. So first create the fullcalender.blade.php file and put the below code:

resources/views/fullcalender.blade.php

$(document).ready(function () {

var SITEURL = "{{ url('/') }}";

$.ajaxSetup({
headers: {
'X-CSRF-TOKEN': $('meta[name="csrf-token"]').attr('content')
}
});

var calendar = $('#calendar').fullCalendar({
editable: true,
events: SITEURL + "/fullcalender",
displayEventTime: false,
editable: true,
eventRender: function (event, element, view) {
if (event.allDay === 'true') {
event.allDay = true;
} else {
event.allDay = false;
}
},
selectable: true,
selectHelper: true,
select: function (start, end, allDay) {
var title = prompt('Event Title:');
if (title) {
var start = $.fullCalendar.formatDate(start, "Y-MM-DD");
var end = $.fullCalendar.formatDate(end, "Y-MM-DD");
$.ajax({
url: SITEURL + "/fullcalenderAjax",
data: {
title: title,
start: start,
end: end,
type: 'add'
},
type: "POST",
success: function (data) {
displayMessage("Event Created Successfully");

calendar.fullCalendar('renderEvent',
{
id: data.id,
title: title,
start: start,
end: end,
allDay: allDay
},true);

calendar.fullCalendar('unselect');
}
});
}
},
eventDrop: function (event, delta) {
var start = $.fullCalendar.formatDate(event.start, "Y-MM-DD");
var end = $.fullCalendar.formatDate(event.end, "Y-MM-DD");

$.ajax({
url: SITEURL + '/fullcalenderAjax',
data: {
title: event.title,
start: start,
end: end,
id: event.id,
type: 'update'
},
type: "POST",
success: function (response) {
displayMessage("Event Updated Successfully");
}
});
},
eventClick: function (event) {
var deleteMsg = confirm("Do you really want to delete?");
if (deleteMsg) {
$.ajax({
type: "POST",
url: SITEURL + '/fullcalenderAjax',
data: {
id: event.id,
type: 'delete'
},
success: function (response) {
calendar.fullCalendar('removeEvents', event.id);
displayMessage("Event Deleted Successfully");
}
});
}
}

});

});

function displayMessage(message) {
toastr.success(message, 'Event');
}

</script>

</body>
