Let's start our example tutorial of react js laravel get request api example from scratch.

 

Step 1: Download Laravel

First, in this step to create laravel react axios get request example we need to open Terminal and run the following command to create a fresh Laravel project:

composer create-project laravel/laravel react-js

 

Step 2: Install Laravel UI

In this step we need to install Laravel ui. Because of we have to install react js in our Laravel app, for that we have to install Laravel ui package to get react support.

composer require laravel/ui

 

After running the above command, run below command to install react

php artisan ui react

//then run

npm install

//then


npm run watch

 

Step 3: Create Route

Now in this step we need to see our view file where we will render our react component. So create route. Here we need to route, one for see view and another for fetch our users json data.

routes/web.php

use App\Models\User;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| 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('/', function () {
    return view('welcome');
});


Route::get('/users', function (Request $request) {
    $users = User::paginate(10);
    return $users;
});
