Create and Setup Controller

First of all, create a controller so that we can remove quotes (or any string we want) from the string . So, fire the below commands in the terminal.

php artisan make:controller HomeController

It'll create a controller under app\Http\Controllers called HomeController.php. Open the file and replace with below codes.


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class HomeController extends Controller
    public function removeWords()
        $str = 'Welcome to ""';
        dd(str_replace('"', '', $str));

Create Route

Now we'll create routes so that we can see the output of our string after removing the quotes. So, put the below route in web.php file. 


use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

Route::get('/', function () {
    return view('welcome');

Route::get('remove/words', [\App\Http\Controllers\HomeController::class,'removeWords']);


And finally we're ready with our setup. It's time to check our output. Now go to, If everything goes well (hope so) you'll find a below output
