Laravel — P34: Introduction to the Car Management Project

An Introduction to a Laravel Car Management Project

We’ve made it past the introductory phase and are ready to put our knowledge to the test. In the next few articles, we’re going to be making a car management system.

If you haven’t taken a look at the first 33 articles, we’ve gone through a lot. We covered the installation process, directory structure basics, basic routing, views (both blade and component based), controllers, models, and database operations, which include Models, migrations, Factories, and Seeders.

Most of these have been on a pure introductory level and we’ll come back to them after we build this system. The advanced portion of this series will cover each of the topics in depth.

How can we tackle the Car Management System?

Any kind of management system requires that we go through the CRUD process (Create, Read, Update, and Delete).


We’ll start off with our comfort zone: creating the database structure for our car management system and populating it with fake data.


Our main page will display all of our cars and links to each individual car.


When we visit a specific vehicle, we’ll be able to view all of its details on the show page. We’ll also be able to click to edit it or delete it.


Once we click on the edit button, the text will transform into a pre-populated field for that particular car. We can make modifications and click Save. Clicking the Save button will trigger the data to be sent to the backend and the information updated for that particular car.


We’ll also need to be able to delete a specific car. Once we click delete, Laravel will process the deletion for us.


Finally, we need to have the ability to insert a new car into the system. A form needs to be displayed where the user can enter data, and once they click Submit, the data will be processed and inserted.

Along the way, we’re going to focus on form validation, error management, and relationships between Models. Once the project is done, we’ll review these concepts in full. We’ll come back to the Car Management Project frequently and add additional features like authentication and unit testing.

I’m excited to create this project with you all. See you soon.
