Ajax Data and Image Upload in Laravel

If you're working on a Laravel project that requires uploading data and images via Ajax, you're in the right place. In this article, I will explain how to upload data and images via Ajax in Laravel step by step.

Step 1: Installation and Configuration

The first step is to install and configure Laravel. To install Laravel, you can use either Composer or Laravel Installer. Once you have installed Laravel, you need to configure your database settings and other settings related to your project.

Step 2: Creating a Route

The next step is to create a route that will handle the Ajax request. You can create a route in the web.php file located in the routes directory of your Laravel project.

Route::post('/upload', 'UploadController@upload');

Step 3: Creating a Controller

The next step is to create a controller that will handle the Ajax request. You can create a controller using the artisan command:

php artisan make:controller UploadController

Once you have created the controller, you need to define the upload method:

public function upload(Request $request)
    // Handle the Ajax request

Step 4: Uploading Data and Images via Ajax

The final step is to create an Ajax request that will send the data and images to the server. You can use jQuery to create the Ajax request:

$(document).ready(function() {
    $('#uploadForm').on('submit', function(e) {
        var formData = new FormData(this);
            url: '/upload',
            type: 'POST',
            data: formData,
            processData: false,
            contentType: false,
            success: function(data) {
                // Handle the response
            error: function(data) {
                // Handle the error

Make sure to add the CSRF token to your Ajax request:

And add the CSRF token to the Ajax request header:

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

That's it! Now you know how to upload data and images via Ajax in Laravel.
