You use Laravel 5 and you want to send a DELETE request without creating a form? This will handle the form-creation bits for you dynamically, similar to the Rails implementation. To use, import script, and create a link with the `data-method="DELETE"` and `data-token="{{csrf_token()}}"` attributes.
/*
Exemples :
<a href="posts/2" data-method="delete" data-token="{{csrf_token()}}">
- Or, request confirmation in the process -
<a href="posts/2" data-method="delete" data-token="{{csrf_token()}}" data-confirm="Are you sure?">
*/
(function() {
var laravel = {
initialize: function() {
this.methodLinks = $('a[data-method]');
this.token = $('a[data-token]');
this.registerEvents();
},
registerEvents: function() {
this.methodLinks.on('click', this.handleMethod);
},
handleMethod: function(e) {
var link = $(this);
var httpMethod = link.data('method').toUpperCase();
var form;
// If the data-method attribute is not PUT or DELETE,
// then we don't know what to do. Just ignore.
if ( $.inArray(httpMethod, ['PUT', 'DELETE']) === - 1 ) {
return;
}
// Allow user to optionally provide data-confirm="Are you sure?"
if ( link.data('confirm') ) {
if ( ! laravel.verifyConfirm(link) ) {
return false;
}
}
form = laravel.createForm(link);
form.submit();
e.preventDefault();
},
verifyConfirm: function(link) {
return confirm(link.data('confirm'));
},
createForm: function(link) {
var form =
$('<form>', {
'method': 'POST',
'action': link.attr('href')
});
var token =
$('<input>', {
'type': 'hidden',
'name': '_token',
'value': link.data('token')
});
var hiddenInput =
$('<input>', {
'name': '_method',
'type': 'hidden',
'value': link.data('method')

.appendTo('body');

Hi all,

i've change a little bit to support jQuery promise so you can use any confirm action like bootbox or swal 👍

Got a problem with this. I get redirected to the href link and doesn't trigger the events registered above. However when I do debug console and traverse through the handleMethod it submits fine. Should I place this inside $(function(){})?

It's actually triggering the handleMethod method. However, the reason for the redirection was because the e.preventDefault() wasn't triggered so the link automatically redirects without calling the form.submit() first.
