To fetch data from a JSON with Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. First, make sure you have a JSON file with the data you want to fetch. You can create a JSON file or fetch data from an API that returns JSON data.
  2. In your Laravel application, you can use the file_get_contents function to read the contents of the JSON file or use the json_decode function to convert the JSON string into a PHP array.
  3. Here is an example of how to fetch data from a JSON file in Laravel:

public function fetchDataFromJsonFile()
{
    // Path to the JSON file
    $file = public_path('data.json');

    // Read the contents of the file
    $jsonString = file_get_contents($file);

    // Convert the JSON string into a PHP array
    $data = json_decode($jsonString, true);

    // Access the data and do something with it
    foreach ($data as $item) {
        echo $item['name'] . ' - ' . $item['email'] . '<br>';
    }
}


  1. You can also fetch data from an API that returns JSON data using Laravel's built-in HTTP client Guzzle. Here is an example of how to fetch data from an API in Laravel:

use IlluminateSupportFacadesHttp;

public function fetchDataFromApi()
{
    // Make a GET request to the API
    $response = Http::get('https://api.example.com/data');

    // Convert the JSON response into a PHP array
    $data = $response->json();

    // Access the data and do something with it
    foreach ($data as $item) {
        echo $item['name'] . ' - ' . $item['email'] . '<br>';
    }
}


By following these steps, you can fetch data from a JSON file or API in your Laravel application.
