Installation

Laraform is a full-stack library which comes with a separate frontend and backend library. This will install Laraform's Community Edition. For the full package please check out our website.

Install frontend library for Vue.js:

npm i laraform --save

Make sure you have the following peer dependencies installed:

npm i axios lodash moment vue --save

Install backend library for Laravel:

composer require laraform/laraform-laravel

Publish assets:

php artisan vendor:publish

When asked, choose: Laraform\LaraformServiceProvider. This will publish a config file at config/laraform.php.

Usage

Create a form at app\Forms\FirstForm.php:

<?php

namespace App\Forms;

class FirstForm extends \Laraform
{
  public function schema() {
    return [
      'hello_world' => [
        'type' => 'text',
        'label' => 'Hello',
        'default' => 'World'
      ]
    ];
  }
}

Pass the form to view in routes/web.php using app() function:

Route::get('/', function () {
  return view('welcome', [
    'form' => app('App\Forms\FirstForm')
  ]);
});

Set up rendering in view in resources/views/welcome.blade.php:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="{{ str_replace('_', '-', app()->getLocale()) }}">
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <meta name="csrf-token" content="{{ csrf_token() }}">

    <title>Laravel</title>

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/css/app.css">
  </head>
  <body>
    <div id="app">
      {!! $form->render() !!}
    </div>

    <script src="/js/app.js"></script>
  </body>
</html>

Include Laraform in resources/js/app.js:

require('./bootstrap');

import Vue from 'vue'
import Laraform from 'laraform'

Vue.use(Laraform)

const app = new Vue({
  el: '#app',
})

Import theme in resources/sass/app.scss:

@import 'laraform/src/themes/default/scss/theme.scss';

If you are planning to use a CSS framework, like Bootstrap, make sure you include its theme file before Laraform's theme, so that Laraform can make use of the CSS framework's variables.

This is how it should look like in case of Bootstrap 4:

// Bootstrap 4's main theme file
@import 'bootstrap/scss/bootstrap';

// Laraform's theme file created for Bootstrap 4
@import 'laraform/src/themes/bs4/scss/theme.scss';

Laraform currently support Bootstrap 3 and Bootstrap 4. If you are using one of those also make sure to change the global theme in config/laraform.php to bs3 or bs4:

// ...
'theme' => 'bs4',

// ...

Compile your assets with:

npm run dev

Launch your site for example with:

php artisan serve

Now if you load the site you should see a very simple form with one single input. Check out our docs to learn how to create more advanced forms.

You can also download Examples to see more forms in action.
