How to implement DataTables server-side in laravel

We need to install yajra package using composer.

Run the following the command to install it,

composer require yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle:~6.0

or else add the following code to composer.json file and run composer install

"require": {........"yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle": "~6.0"}

and add DataTables to providers list /config/app.php

'providers' => [        .....        .....        Yajra\Datatables\DatatablesServiceProvider::class,

],

and finally we publish the configuration,

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=datatables

Here we show all the data in a table, we use the same data from previous example,

<table class="datatable mdl-data-table dataTable" cellspacing="0"    width="100%" role="grid" style="width: 100%;">    <thead>        <tr>            <th>ID</th>            <th>First Name</th>            <th>Last Name</th>            <th>Email</th>            <th>Gender</th>            <th>Country</th>            <th>Salary</th>        </tr>    </thead>    <tbody>    </tbody></table>

the class names used above for table are as suggested by datatables.net/examples/styling/material.html

We use some java script to initialize DataTables, process server-side requests and for the material design part we use.

<script>    $(document).ready(function() {        $('.datatable').DataTable({            processing: true,            serverSide: true,            ajax: '{{ route(' serverSide ') }}',            columnDefs: [{                targets: [0, 1, 2],                className: 'mdl-data-table__cell--non-numeric'            }]        });    });</script>

As we see in the above script, the ajax call routes to serverSide, here is the logic for it,

Route::get('/serverSide', [    'as'   => 'serverSide',    'uses' => function () {        $users = App\Data::all();        return Datatables::of($users)->make();    }]);
