To connect React.js with Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Set up a Laravel project: First, create a new Laravel project by running the following command in your terminal:
1
composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel your-project-name


  1. Install Laravel Passport: If you plan on using Laravel Passport for authentication, you can install it by running the following command in your terminal:
1
composer require laravel/passport


  1. Configure Laravel Passport: Follow the instructions in the Laravel Passport documentation to configure Passport for your Laravel project.
  2. Set up a React.js project: Create a new React.js project by running the following command in your terminal:
1
npx create-react-app react-app


  1. Install axios: axios is a popular library for making HTTP requests in React. Install axios by running the following command in your React project directory:
1
npm install axios


  1. Make API requests: You can now make API requests from your React.js frontend to your Laravel backend. You can use axios to make GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE requests to your Laravel API endpoints.
  2. Create API routes in Laravel: Define API routes in your Laravel project by adding routes in the routes/api.php file.
  3. Authenticate requests: If you are using Laravel Passport for authentication, make sure to include the necessary headers in your axios requests to authenticate the requests.


By following these steps, you can easily connect React.js with Laravel and build a full-stack application.
