Setup Controller

So at first, we'll create a controller by firing the below command.

php artisan make:controller FullCalendar

It'll create a controller under app/Http/Controllers called FullCalendar, open the file and below code in your controller. Look at the below source code.


namespace App\Http\Controllers;
class FullCalendar extends Controller
    public function calendar()
        $events = [];

        $start_dates = ['2023-06-01','2023-06-07','2023-06-11','2023-06-12T10:30:00','2023-06-12','2023-06-12','2023-06-13','2023-06-28'];
        $end_date = ['','2023-06-10','2023-06-13','2023-06-12T12:30:00','2023-06-12T12:00:00','2023-06-12T14:30:00','2023-06-13T07:00:00',''];

        $titles = ['All Day Event','Long Event','Conference','Meeting','Lunch','Meeting','Birthday Party','Click for Google'];
        $links = ['','','','','','','',''];

        foreach ($titles as $key=> $title) {
            $events[]   = [
                'title' => $title,
                'start' => $start_dates[$key],
                'end'   => $end_date[$key],
                'url'   => $links[$key],

        $data = [
            'events' => $events

        return view('fullcalendar',$data);

Setup View

Now we need to setup the blade file, so that we can show the result in a nice way.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang='en'>
    <meta charset='utf-8' />
<div id='calendar'></div>
<script src='[email protected]/'></script>

    document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function() {
        var calendarEl = document.getElementById('calendar');
        var calendar = new FullCalendar.Calendar(calendarEl, {
            initialView: 'dayGridMonth',
            events : @json($events)


Setup Route

Put the below route in the web.php file.

Route::get('/fullcalendar', [\App\Http\Controllers\FullCalendar::class,'calendar'])->name('fullcalendar');


Now it's the time to check the output. Go to localhost:8000/fullcalendar, and you'll find the below output.

That's it for today. I hope it'll be helpful in upcoming project. You can also download this source code from GitHub. Thanks for reading. ๐Ÿ™‚
