Fetch records from MySQL with jQuery AJAX – Laravel

AJAX makes easier to load records from MySQL database without reloading the whole page.

Handle AJAX request from the controller and database manipulation in the model.

In this tutorial, I show how you can fetch records from MySQL database with jQuery AJAX in Laravel.

Fetch records from MySQL with jQuery AJAX – Laravel


  1. Table structure
  2. Database Configuration
  3. Model
  4. Controller
  5. Route
  6. View
  7. Output
  8. Conclusion


1. Table structure

I am using users table in the example.

CREATE TABLE `users` (
  `username` varchar(80) NOT NULL,
  `name` varchar(80) NOT NULL,
  `email` varchar(80) NOT NULL

2. Database Configuration

Open .env file.

Specify the host, database name, username, and password.


3. Model

Create a Page model.

php artisan make:model Page

Here, create a single method –

  • getuserData – Fetch all records from users table and return it. If $id value is not 0 then select a record by id.



namespace App;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\DB;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Page extends Model {
  public static function getuserData($id=0){

      $value=DB::table('users')->orderBy('id', 'asc')->get(); 
      $value=DB::table('users')->where('id', $id)->first();
    return $value;

4. Controller

Create a Pages controller.

php artisan make:controller PagesController

Create two methods –

  • index() – Load user_data view.
  • getUsers() – This method is call from $.ajax request in jQuery.

Fetch all records by calling Page::getuserData($id) where pass $id and initialize $userData['data']. Return in JSON fromat.

Completed Code


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Page;

class PagesController extends Controller{

  public function index(){
    return view('ajaxget');

  public function getUsers($id = 0){
    // Fetch all records
    $userData['data'] = Page::getuserData($id);

    echo json_encode($userData);

5. Route

Define 2 routes in routes/web.php file –

  • /
  • getUsers/{id} – This is used in jQuery AJAX.

Completed Code


// Controller-name@method-name
Route::get('/', 'PagesController@index'); // localhost:8000/

6. View

Create a new user_view.blade.php file in resources/views/ directory.

Download jQuery library and store in public/js/ directory.

Fetch records from MySQL with jQuery AJAX – Laravel

Or you can also use CND –

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.3.1/jquery.min.js"></script>


Create a textbox and two buttons and list all fetch records in <table> with jQuery AJAX.

  • The first button uses to fetch records according to entered userid in the textbox.
  • The second button uses to fetch all records.


Create a function fetchRecords from where send AJAX GET request to 'getUsers/'+id. On successful callback empty the <table> <tbody> and get response['data'] length is not null.

Add new row to <tbody> according to following conditions –

  • If len>0 then loop on response['data'] and create new <tr> and append in <tbody>.
  • If len is not greater than 0 and response['data'] is not null then create a single <tr> and append in <tbody>.
  • If len is not greater than 0 and response['data'] is null then create a single <tr> with No record found message in <td> and append in <tbody>.

On the search button click gets the textbox value and pass in fetchRecords() function.

Completed Code

<!doctype html>
     <input type='text' id='search' name='search' placeholder='Enter userid 1-27'><input type='button' value='Search' id='but_search'>
     <input type='button' value='Fetch all records' id='but_fetchall'>
     <table border='1' id='userTable' style='border-collapse: collapse;'>

     <!-- Script -->
     <!-- <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.3.1/jquery.min.js"></script> --> <!-- jQuery CDN -->
     <script src="{{asset('js/jquery-3.3.1.min.js')}}"></script>

     <script type='text/javascript'>

       // Fetch all records

       // Search by userid
          var userid = Number($('#search').val().trim());
	  if(userid > 0){



     function fetchRecords(id){
         url: 'getUsers/'+id,
         type: 'get',
         dataType: 'json',
         success: function(response){

           var len = 0;
           $('#userTable tbody').empty(); // Empty <tbody>
           if(response['data'] != null){
             len = response['data'].length;

           if(len > 0){
             for(var i=0; i<len; i++){
               var id = response['data'][i].id;
               var username = response['data'][i].username;
               var name = response['data'][i].name;
               var email = response['data'][i].email;

               var tr_str = "<tr>" +
                   "<td align='center'>" + (i+1) + "</td>" +
                   "<td align='center'>" + username + "</td>" +
                   "<td align='center'>" + name + "</td>" +
                   "<td align='center'>" + email + "</td>" +

               $("#userTable tbody").append(tr_str);
           }else if(response['data'] != null){
              var tr_str = "<tr>" +
                  "<td align='center'>1</td>" +
                  "<td align='center'>" + response['data'].username + "</td>" + 
                  "<td align='center'>" + response['data'].name + "</td>" +
                  "<td align='center'>" + response['data'].email + "</td>" +

              $("#userTable tbody").append(tr_str);
              var tr_str = "<tr>" +
                  "<td align='center' colspan='4'>No record found.</td>" +

              $("#userTable tbody").append(tr_str);
