Laravel 5: Search box using jQuery & ajax

I have tackled about the native way in searching record in this post Laravel 5 simple search box using GET method

Now I will show you how to make a search box using Search Box using jQuery + Ajax.


  • Return json data which you can manipulate
  • Clean url, since you use ajax
  • You can add variety of additional jquery effects like toaster messages, etc


  • Additional code needed

Things you need to know:

  • Ajax and jquery little background or can read the code
  • Knowledge of json
  • I used employee table, so anything from model to controller are employee related

What our search box will be?

  • An input type text
  • jQuery will trigger when enter button is pressed
  • No search button

Now lets get started.
