php - How to get clean GET urls for search in laravel 5.4


Currently I'm working on a project search functionality in Laravel and stuck in to get clean GET urls without any kind of JS JS will work too

like when I search my form redirects me to


but instead, I want this


My web.php is:

Route::get('search', ['as' => 'search', 'uses' => '[email protected]']);

Form is:

<form class="form-inline" method="GET" action="{{ action('[email protected]') }}" id="search-form">
  <div >
    <div >

      <input type="text" id="form-q" name="q" placeholder="Search a Job">
      <i ></i>

  <div >
    <div >
      <button type="submit" >Search <i ></i> </button>

Currently In controller I'm just printing the value:

 public function search(Request $request)
  echo $request['q'];  

I've already checked multiple solutions of JS or POST but none works for me this is the final output I'm looking for: http://jobs.localhost/search/hello





Change route to:

Route::get('search/{search}', ['as' => 'search', 'uses' => '[email protected]']);

And controller to:

public function search(Request $request, $search)
    echo $search;  

Then you'll be able to do something like this with jQuery:

$('#search-form').on('submit', function(e) {
    var search = $('#form-q').val();
    window.location('/search/' + search);



What you want is route parameters. You can find more info here.

A problem you can (and will) run into is that the route for the form is determined in php (server side), but the search parameter is determined as input. If you don't want any javascript I believe this is impossible without rerouting.
