If you are working with REST API then you always need to return json data response that way front-end developer can handle it easily. i created bellow controller method in this method i return json array response, that way you can understand very well. laravel 5 provide response() helper and it will help to response of json object. But if you are working on Core PHP then you have to do json_encode before send output. In laravel you can do it easily like this way:

Example:

public function getJsonData()

{

$myArray = ['id'=>1, 'name'=>'HD'];

return response()->json($myArray);

}
