My Simple Laravel 5 Phonebook App Project with DataTables

It has been a while since my last tutorial. So, I challenged myself to develop a small and simple phonebook or phone directory web application by using Laravel 5.2 framework and DataTables plugin.

If you are not familiar with DataTables, DataTables is a plug-in for the jQuery Javascript library. It is a highly flexible tool, based upon the foundations of progressive enhancement, and will add advanced interaction controls to any HTML table.

Laravel 5.3 is going to be released soon if I’m not mistaken and yet I still developing using 5.2 version. That is find because this app is simple and the updating part should be not so complicated (I guess).

I have yet to set up the demo online. But basically the phonebook has features like: 

  • User authentication
  • User registration
  • Update and reset password
  • CRUD operations to save and retrieve contacts
  • Use ajax (datatables plugin) for searching and tabulation of data

This app is more or less quite similar with My Customer Management app but the phonebook is simpler and nicer IMO. Hahaha.

Below some of the screenshots that I can share with you guys. Any feedback are most welcome.
