I will explain step by step tutorial laravel livewire file upload. you can see laravel livewire file upload example. we will help you to give example of file upload with laravel livewire. We will use laravel livewire store upload file.

In this tutorial, we will create simple file upload example using laravel livewire. you can use laravel livewire with laravel 6, laravel 7 and laravel 8 version.

Livewire is a full-stack framework for Laravel framework that makes building dynamic interfaces simple, without leaving the comfort of Laravel. if you are using livewire with laravel then you don't worry about writing jquery ajax code, livewire will help to write very simple way jquery ajax code using php. without page refresh laravel validation will works, form will submit etc.

Here, i will give you very simple example to creating files upload form with title and name and i will store that data to database without refresh page and too many lines of code in blade file. we will use only livewire/livewire package.

So, let's follow bellow step and you will get bellow layout:

Step 1 : Install Laravel 8

first of all we need to get fresh Laravel 8 version application using bellow command, So open your terminal OR command prompt and run bellow command:

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Step 2 : Create Migration and Model

Here, we need create database migration for files table and also we will create model for files table.

php artisan make:migration create_files_table

Migration:

<?php

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

class CreateFilesTable extends Migration

{

/**

* Run the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function up()

{

Schema::create('files', function (Blueprint $table) {

$table->id();

$table->string('title');

$table->string('name');

$table->timestamps();

});

}

/**

* Reverse the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function down()

{

Schema::dropIfExists('files');

}

}

php artisan migrate

now we will create File model by using following command:

php artisan make:model File

App/Models/File.php

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class File extends Model

{

use HasFactory;

protected $fillable = [

'title','name'

];

}

Step 3: Install Livewire

now in this step, we will simply install livewire to our laravel 8 application using bellow command:

composer require livewire/livewire

Step 4: Create Component

Now here we will create livewire component using their command. so run bellow command to create file upload form component.

php artisan make:livewire file-upload

Now they created fies on both path:

app/Http/Livewire/FileUpload.php

resources/views/livewire/file-upload.blade.php

Now both file we will update as bellow for our contact us form.

app/Http/Livewire/FileUpload.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Livewire;

use Livewire\Component;

use Livewire\WithFileUploads;

use App\Models\File;

class FileUpload extends Component

{

use WithFileUploads;

public $file, $title;

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function submit()

{

$validatedData = $this->validate([

'title' => 'required',

'file' => 'required',

]);

$validatedData['name'] = $this->file->store('files', 'public');

File::create($validatedData);

session()->flash('message', 'File successfully Uploaded.');

}

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function render()

{

return view('livewire.file-upload');

}

}

resources/views/livewire/file-upload.blade.php

<form wire:submit.prevent="submit" enctype="multipart/form-data">

<div>

@if(session()->has('message'))

<div class="alert alert-success">

{{ session('message') }}

</div>

@endif

</div>

<div class="form-group">

<label for="exampleInputName">Title:</label>

<input type="text" class="form-control" id="exampleInputName" placeholder="Enter title" wire:model="title">

@error('title') <span class="text-danger">{{ $message }}</span> @enderror

</div>

<div class="form-group">

<label for="exampleInputName">File:</label>

<input type="file" class="form-control" id="exampleInputName" wire:model="file">

@error('name') <span class="text-danger">{{ $message }}</span> @enderror

</div>

<button type="submit" class="btn btn-success">Save</button>

</form>

Step 5: Create Route

now we will create one route for calling our example, so let's add new route to web.php file as bellow:

routes/web.php

Route::get('file-upload', function () {

return view('default');

});

Step 6: Create View File

here, we will create blade file for call form route. in this file we will use @livewireStyles, @livewireScripts and @livewire('contact-form'). so let's add it.

resources/views/default.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

<title>Laravel Livewire Example - ItSolutionStuff.com</title>

@livewireStyles

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.5.2/css/bootstrap.min.css" integrity="sha384-JcKb8q3iqJ61gNV9KGb8thSsNjpSL0n8PARn9HuZOnIxN0hoP+VmmDGMN5t9UJ0Z" crossorigin="anonymous">

</head>

<body>

<div class="container">

<div class="card">

<div class="card-header">

Laravel Livewire Example - ItSolutionStuff.com

</div>

<div class="card-body">

@livewire('file-upload')

</div>

</div>

</div>

</body>

@livewireScripts

</html>

Now you can run using bellow command:

php artisan serve

Open bellow URL:

http://localhost:8000/file-upload

I hope it can help you...
