jQuery AJAX Uploader For Laravel

jQuery AJAX uploader for laravel  site and we are going to use simple HTML form and uploading image and show a preview on the upload form.


Lets start write coding, First begin with Routes.

Route::get('files', 'ImageController@getUploadForm');

The above one help you to create the folder and path to images directory. Than move to the view file and create the form for the image uploader and preview.

<div class="row">
			<div class="span8">
				<h4>Ajax Image Upload and Preview With Laravel</h4>
		<!-- Post Footer -->
		<div class="row">
			<div class="span3">
				<div id="validation-errors"></div>
				<form class="form-horizontal" id="kv_upload" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="{{ url('files/image') }}" autocomplete="off">
					<input type="hidden" name="_token" value="{{ csrf_token() }}" />
					<input type="file" name="image" id="kv_image" /> 

			<div class="span5">
				<div id="output" style="display:none">

This is a sample form with AJAX support.  and now we need to create a controller class to perform  upload and storing operations.


class ImageController extends BaseController {
	public function getUploadForm() {	return View::make('image/upload-form');	}

	public function postUpload() {
		$file = Input::file('image');
		$input = array('image' => $file);
		$rules = array(	'image' => 'image');
		$validator = Validator::make($input, $rules);
		if ( $validator->fails() ){
			return Response::json(['success' => false, 'errors' => $validator->getMessageBag()->toArray()]);
		else {
			$destinationPath = 'files/';
			$filename = $file->getClientOriginalName();
			Input::file('image')->move($destinationPath, $filename);
			return Response::json(['success' => true, 'file' => asset($destinationPath.$filename)]);

And finally , the Js function to handle the AJAX operations.


function showRequest(formData, jqForm, options) { 
    return true; 
function showResponse(response, statusText, xhr, $form)  { 
	if(response.success == false)
		var arr = response.errors;
		jQuery.each(arr, function(index, value)
			if (value.length != 0)
				jQuery("#validation-errors").append('<div class="alert alert-error"><strong>'+ value +'</strong><div>');
	} else {
		 jQuery("#output").html("<img src='"+response.file+"' />");

jQuery(document).ready(function() {
	var options = { 
                beforeSubmit:  showRequest,
		success:       showResponse,
		dataType: 'json' 
 	jQuery('body').delegate('#image','change', function(){

That’s it. and create files folder on your public/files/images/  and make the directory permission as 0777.
