Step 1: Download Laravel

This is the first step and we need a fresh laravel application; however, if you have not created the laravel app, then you may go ahead and execute the below command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel example-app


Step 2: Create Controller

At this point, now we should create a new controller as UserController. In this controller, we will add an index and show a method, that will return users.

Let's update the following code to your controller file:


namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Models\User;
class UserController extends Controller
     * Write code on Method
     * @return response()
    public function index()
        $users = User::paginate(20);
        return view('users', compact('users'));
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
    public function show($id)
        $user = User::find($id);
        return response()->json($user);


Step 3: Add Route

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

| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which
| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!
Route::get('users', [UserController::class, 'index']);
Route::get('users/{id}', [UserController::class, 'show'])->name('');
