Laravel Vue Datatable

A Vue.js datatable component for Laravel that works with Bootstrap.

Requirements

  • Vue.js 2.x
  • Laravel 5.x

Using Dynamic Components

You can also inject your own components into the table such as buttons. Your buttons, links etc can also listen for events.

Example Button Component

(ExampleButton.vue)

<template>
    <button :class="classes" @click="click(data)" title="Update">
        <span>
            <i class="fa fa-eye" aria-hidden="true"></i>
        </span>
        &nbsp;
        {{ name }}
    </button>
</template>
export default {
    props: {
        data: {},
        name: {},
        click: {},
        classes: {},
    }
}

Dynamic Datatable Columns

(UserDatatable.vue)


import ExampleButton './ExampleButton.vue';

export default {
    data() {
        return {
            url: 'http://vue-datatable.test/ajax',
            perPage: ['10', '25', '50'],
            columns: [
            {
                label: 'ID',
                name: 'id',
                filterable: true,
            },
            {
                label: 'Name',
                 name: 'name',
                filterable: true,
            },
            {
                label: 'Email',
                name: 'email',
                filterable: true,
            }
            {
                label: '',
                name: 'View',
                filterable: false,
                component: ExampleButton,
                event: "click",
                handler: this.alertMe,
                classes: { 
                    'btn': true,
                    'btn-primary': true,
                    'btn-sm': true,
                } 
            },
            ]
        }
    },
    components: {
        // eslint-disable-next-line
        ExampleButton,
    },
    methods: {
        alertMe(data) {
            alert("hey");
        }
    },
}

Overriding the Filters and Pagination Components

If the included pagination or filters do not meet your requirements or if the styling is incorrect, they can be over-written using scoped slots.

Paginatior Datatable

<data-table
    :url="url"
    :columns="columns"
    :per-page="perPage">

    <span slot="pagination" slot-scope="{ links, meta }">
        <paginator 
            :meta="meta"
            :links="links"
            @next="updateUrl"
            @prev="updateUrl">
        </paginator>
    </span>
</data-table>

Once the URL has been updated by your customer paginator or filters, the table will re-render. Alterativly, if updating the URL is troublesome, different table filters can be manipulated by your filters using the v-model directive:

Example Filter

(DatatableFilter.vue)

This example filter will control the length of the table manipulating the tableData.length property using v-model.

<template>
    <select
        class="form-control"
        v-model="tableData.length">
        <option
            :key="index"
            :value="records"
            v-for="(records, index) in perPage">
            {{ records }}
        </option>
    </select>
</template>
export default {
    props: [
        "tableData", "perPage"
    ]
}

Filter Datatable

<data-table
    :url="url"
    :columns="columns"
    :per-page="perPage">

    <span slot="filters" slot-scope="{ tableData, perPage }">
        <data-table-filters
            :per-page="perPage"
            :table-data="tableData">
        </data-table-filters>
    </span>
</data-table>

Custom Filters

You can also add your own custom filters to be sent to the Laravel backend:

Datatable

data() {
    return {
        url: "/url",
        perPage: ['10', '25', '50'],
        columns: [
        	...
        ],
        filters: {
            isAdmin: '',
        },
        pagination:{
            limit: 1,
            align: "right",
            size: "small"
        }
    }
},
<data-table
    :url="url"
    :filters="filters"
    :columns="columns"
    :per-page="perPage"
    :pagination="pagination">
    <span slot="filters" slot-scope="{ tableData, perPage }">
        <data-table-filters
            :table-data="tableData"
            :per-page="perPage">
        </data-table-filters>
    </span>
</data-table>

Example Filter


<div class="row mb-3">
    <div class="col-md-3">
        <select
            v-model="tableData.length"
            class="form-control">
            <option
                :key="index"
                :value="records"
                v-for="(records, index) in perPage">
                {{records}}
            </option>
        </select>
    </div>
    <div class="col-md-3">
        <select
            v-model="tableData.filters.isAdmin"
            class="form-control">
            <option value>All Staff</option>
            <option value='admin'>Admin</option>
            <option value='staff'>Staff</option>
        </select>
    </div>
    <div class="col-md-3 offset-md-3">
        <input
            name="name"
            class="form-control"
            v-model="tableData.search"
            placeholder="Search Table">
    </div>
</div>

This added "isAdmin" filter for staff type will be send to the Laravel backend and can be used to manipulate the results:


$query = User::dataTableQuery($column, $dir, $length, $searchValue);
        
if (isset($isAdmin) && ! empty($isAdmin)) {
    $query->where("type", $isAdmin);
}
    
$data = $query->paginate($length);

return new DataTableCollectionResource($data);

Styling the Datatable

You can edit the style of the Datatable by overriding the classes prop. A example mixin config can be found be below for Tailwind:
