Chapter IV - Developing User Panel

Home Page

Home screen or the landing page needs to be simple, clean and user friendly. The good news is that this code will help you develop just that.


1 Route::get('/',array(
2 'as' => 'home',
3 'uses' => 'HomeController@home'
4 ));

Code Explanation:

When a user searches for the web application on their browser, the route code mentioned above takes the command to the HomeController where the home page functions are present.


1 public function home()
2 {
3 $listpost = DB::table('posts')->orderByRaw("RAND()")->take(9)->get();
4 $postrand = DB::table('posts')->orderByRaw("RAND()")->take(1)->first();
5 $postdis = DB::table('posts')->orderby('created_at')->get();
6 $trend = DB::table('posts')->orderby('count','desc')->take(10)->get();
7 return View::make('index')->with('listpost',$listpost)
8 ->with('postrand',$postrand)
9 ->with('postdis',$postdis)
10 ->with('trend',$trend);
11 }

Code Explanation:

The controller code as mentioned above helps in intelligently populating the homepage with trending posts and feeds that engage and compel the users to register with the web application. The HomeController then aids in redirecting the users to app/views/index.blade.php. This folder holds the code of all the views that aids in displaying the screen as illustrated below
