Delete Record in Laravel 8

In this short post, I will share simple methods for deleting records in Laravel 8 with examples.

 

Deleting Examples:

 

Single delete with Laravel query builder:

DB::table('posts')->where('id', 1)->delete();

 

Multiple delete with Laravel query builder:

DB::table('posts')->whereIn('id', [2, 4])->delete();

 

Single delete with Laravel eloquent:

Post::where('id', 1)->delete();

 

Multiple delete with Laravel eloquent:

Post::whereIn('id', [2, 4])->delete();

 

That's it. Next, we will implement in our controller example:

 

Delete Implementation

 

Controller code:

/**
* Remove the specified resource from storage.
*
* @param  \App\Models\Post  $post
* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
*/
public function destroy(Post $post)
{
    $post->delete();

    return redirect()->route('posts.index')
         ->withSuccess(__('Post delete successfully.'));
}

 

Route code:

Route::resource('posts', PostsController::class);

 

Blade code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>

    <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8" />
        <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">

    </head>

    <body>
        <div class="container mt-5">
            @if(Session::get('success', false))
              <?php $data = Session::get('success'); ?>
              @if (is_array($data))
                  @foreach ($data as $msg)
                      <div class="alert alert-success" role="alert">
                          <i class="fa fa-check"></i>
                          {{ $msg }}
                      </div>
                  @endforeach
              @else
                  <div class="alert alert-success" role="alert">
                      <i class="fa fa-check"></i>
                      {{ $data }}
                  </div>
              @endif
            @endif
            <table class="table table-striped" id="users-table">
              <thead>
                <tr>
                  <th scope="col">Title</th>
                  <th scope="col">Description</th>
                  <th scope="col">Body</th>
                  <th scope="col">Delete</th>
                </tr>
              </thead>
              <tbody>
                @foreach($posts as $post)
                  <tr>
                    <td>{{$post->title}}</td>
                    <td>{{$post->description}}</td>
                    <td>{{$post->body}}</td>
                    <td>
                        <form method="post" action="{{route('posts.destroy',$post->id)}}">
                            @method('delete')
                            @csrf
                            <button type="submit" class="btn btn-danger btn-sm">Delete</button>
                        </form>
                    </td>
                  </tr>
                @endforeach
              </tbody>
            </table>
        </div>
    </body>
</html>

 

That's it. I hope it helps.
