In this article, I am going to share how to use SweetAlert2 in Laravel 8.x and Upper with AJAX. Let’s start.

Create Controller

Create user controller using this command:

php artisan make:controller UserController

Open user controller and paste this code:

UserController.php
<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

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

class UserController extends Controller
{
    // all users
    public function users()
    {
        $users = User::all();
        return view('users', compact('users'));
    }

    // delete user
    public function delete($id)
    {
        $delete = User::destroy($id);

        // check data deleted or not
        if ($delete == 1) {
            $success = true;
            $message = "User deleted successfully";
        } else {
            $success = true;
            $message = "User not found";
        }

        //  return response
        return response()->json([
            'success' => $success,
            'message' => $message,
        ]);
    }
}

I’ve created two functions. One for getting all users and another for deleting user.

Define Routes & Insert Fake data

Let’s define routes for those two functions:

routes/web.php
<?php

use App\Http\Controllers\UserController;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

Route::get('users', [UserController::class, 'users']);
Route::post('delete/{id}', [UserController::class, 'delete']);

Now let’s insert some fake user data:

\App\Models\User::factory(5)->create(); // 5 fake user data

Set SweetAlert2 with AJAX in Blade File

Create a view named “users.blade.php” and paste this code:

users.blade.php
<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <!-- meta tags -->
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">
    <!-- csrf-token -->
    <meta name="csrf-token" content="{{ csrf_token() }}">
    <!-- Bootstrap CSS -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/5.0.0-alpha2/css/bootstrap.min.css">
    <!-- jquery -->
    <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.5.1.min.js"></script>
    <!-- SweetAlert2 -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/limonte-sweetalert2/10.5.1/sweetalert2.min.css">
    <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/limonte-sweetalert2/10.5.1/sweetalert2.all.min.js"></script>

            <td>{{ $user->email }}</td>
            <td>

            if (e.value === true) {
                var CSRF_TOKEN = $('meta[name="csrf-token"]').attr('content');

                $.ajax({
                    type: 'POST',
                    url: "{{url('/delete')}}/" + id,
                    data: {_token: CSRF_TOKEN},
                    dataType: 'JSON',
                    success: function (results) {
                        if (results.success === true) {
                            swal.fire("Done!", results.message, "success");
                            // refresh page after 2 seconds
                            setTimeout(function(){
                                location.reload();
                            },2000);
                        } else {
                            swal.fire("Error!", results.message, "error");
                        }
                    }
                });

            } else {
                e.dismiss;
            }

        }, function (dismiss) {
            return false;
        })
    }
</script>
</body>
</html>

Run and See Output

Now run the Laravel project and visit this route http://localhost:8000/users. You will see a page like this:

Click Delete button and the SweetAlert2 confirmation box will appear:

If you select Yes button, the data will be deleted via AJAX and you will see a confirmation message like this:
