Blank Page

This is a common blank page structure.


    <!-- push external head elements to head -->
        <title>Page title | Site title</title>
        <!-- add some inline style or css file if any -->
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ asset('file-path')}}">

    <!-- push external js if any -->
        <script src="{{ asset('script-path') }}"></script>


The REST API is built using Laravel Passport, a package that provides secure authentication for Laravel applications. The API follows a low-level HTTP-based CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) approach for handling data

API documentation will be found here. and Postman collection here

Connect API

After successful login, an access_token will be provided to user. This token will be used for further requests.

Access token will be like,


Set Authorization header to connect API in request header

'headers' => [
    'Accept' => 'application/json',
    'Authorization' => 'Bearer eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJpc3MiOiJodHRwczpcL1wvd29ya3N1aXRlLmRldlwvYXBpXC92MVwvYXV0aFwvbG9naW4iLCJpYXQiOjE1ODAyODA3MjksImV4cCI6MTYxMTkwMzEyOCwibmJmIjoxNTgwMjgwNzI5LCJqdGkiOiJBYXE1QkdnT0p1dG1ycUdIIiwic3ViIjoxLCJwcnYiOiI4MThmNWM5OGFjZTIzNzUzMmQ5ZDQ5NDNmZDhlZmI1NDBiODU1YjQyIiwicmVtZW1iZXIiOjEsInR5cGUiOjF9.wK4OhcwUWa9uwFboqkZCOznjnRnjU19yzoCGCKIZUY0',

Roles & Permission

In this template, I create some users with different roles and permission. Lets see, how to apply this permissions in any where

Grouped Route
//only those have permission_name permission will get access

Route::group(['middleware' => 'can:permission_name1|permission_name2'], function(){
    //route here
Single Route

Blade Component
    content here
Super Admin

Note: as Super Admin role has all the permissions. Add selected Super Admin in app/provider/AuthServiceProvider.php .

Gate::before(function ($user, $ability) {
    return $user->hasRole('Super Admin') ? true : null; //if change name

Editable Datatable (ejbeaty)

Cell edit plugin allows cells within a DataTable to be editable. When a cell is click on, an input field will appear. When focus is lost on the input and the underlying DataTable object will be updated and the table will be redrawn. The new value is passed to a callback function, along with it's row, allowing for easy server-side data updates.

Editable Datatable
                                        var dTable = $('#table_name').DataTable({});
    "onUpdate": callFunction, //call function to update in backend
    "columns": [0], // define column numbers to be editable
    "confirmationButton": { // could also be true
        "confirmCss": 'btn btn-success',
        "cancelCss": 'btn btn-danger'
    "inputTypes": [
            "column": 0,
            "type": "text",
            "options": null
        // set column properties if add a new one

// update function

function callFunction(updatedCell, updatedRow, oldValue) {
    //do anything
