use Yajra\DataTables\Html\Builder;
use App\DataTables\UserDataTable;
use App\User;
class UsersController extends Controller
   public function index(Builder $builder, UserDataTable $dataTable)
        $html = $builder->columns([
            ['data' => 'id', 'name' => 'id','title' => 'ID'],
            ['data' => 'name', 'name' => 'name','title' => 'Name'],

        if(request()->ajax()) {
            $result = User::select('*');
            return $dataTable->dataTable($result)->toJson();
        return view('user.list', compact(['html']));

Create datatable

Create UserDataTable.php file in app/DataTables/ folder and copy paste the following code.

namespace App\DataTables;
use App\User;
use Yajra\DataTables\Services\DataTable;
class UserDataTable extends DataTable
     * Build DataTable class.
     * @param mixed $query Results from query() method.
     * @return \Yajra\DataTables\DataTableAbstract
    public function dataTable($query)
        return datatables($query)
        ->addColumn('action', function ($data) {
           return '<a class="label label-success" href="' . route('editUser',[$data->id]) . '"  title="Edit"><i class="fa fa-edit"></i></a><a class="label label-danger" href="javascript:;"  title="Delete" onclick="deleteConfirm('.$data->id.')"><i class="fa fa-trash"></i></a><a class="label label-info" href="'.route('createMeasurement',[$data->id]).'"  title="Assign Measurement"><i class="fa fa-stethoscope" aria-hidden="true"></i></a>';
        ->addColumn('user_status', function ($data) {
            if ($data->user_status=='1'){
                return'<a class="text-green actStatus" data-sid="'.$data->id.'" id="state'.$data->id.'"><span class="badge badge-bdr-pill label-success">Active</span></a>';
                return '<a class="text-danger actStatus" data-sid="'.$data->id.'" id="state'.$data->id.'"><span class="badge badge-bdr-pill label-danger">Inactive</span></a>';
        ->addColumn('eps_verified', function ($data) {
            if ($data->eps_verified=='1'){
                return'<a class="text-green epsStatus" data-sid="'.$data->id.'" id="state'.$data->id.'"><span class="badge badge-bdr-pill label-success">Verified</span></a>';
                return '<a class="text-danger epsStatus" data-sid="'.$data->id.'" id="state'.$data->id.'"><span class="badge badge-bdr-pill label-danger">Unverified</span></a>';
        ->filterColumn('created_at', function($query, $keyword) {
          $sql = 'DATE_FORMAT(created_at,"%d-%M-%Y") like ?';
          $query->whereRaw($sql, ["%{$keyword}%"]);
     * Optional method if you want to use html builder.
     * @return \Yajra\DataTables\Html\Builder
    public function html()
        return $this->builder()
                    ->addAction(['width' => '80px'])

Create Blade View

Next, create list.blade.php file in resources/views/user/ folder and copy paste the following code.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <title>Laravel DataTable - Tuts Make</title>
    <link href="" rel="stylesheet">  
    <link  href="" rel="stylesheet">
    <script src=""></script>  
    <script src=""></script>
    <script src=""></script>
      <div class="container">
          <h2>Laravel DataTable - Tuts Make</h2>
          <div class="col-xs-12">
            <div class="box">
                <div class="box-body">
                    {!! $html->table(['class' => 'table table-bordered','id'=>'datatable']) !!}
    {!! $html->scripts() !!}
    $(document).ajaxStart(function() { Pace.restart(); });

7. Start Development Server

In this step, we will use the php artisan serve command. It will start your server locally

php artisan serve

If you want to run the project different port so use this below command

php artisan serve –port=8080
