What are Laravel resource controllers?

Most times the operations we carry out on a model in our application are create, read, update, and delete, as far as interacting with the database is concerned.

The simplest way to execute such an operation is by creating a resource controller, which appropriately routes all HTTP requests for CRUD operations to the controller.

How to create a resource controller

To create a post resource controller, paste the code below in your route:

use App\Http\Controllers\PostController;

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

Then, run php artisan make:controller PostController --resource, which will create a resource, PostController.

Summary

Resource controllers provide a simple way to handle CRUD operations with less hassle. For example, say you want to create a post with a resource controller. You first display the form before storing it. In the create method in the controller, you return the view, and your URI should be /create. Then, while trying to store the values of your form, you should send a POST request to /store.
