Laravel Datatables 7.0
Laravel Datatables 7.0 splits Laravel Datatables 6.x into a main package and plugins packages for more flexibile and pluggable design.
On Laravel Datatables 7.0, service classes and files are extracted into a separate package to reduce its complexity and dependencies on other packages by default. This idea comes up from Issue #832 which actually makes sense since not all users are using the export functionality.
DomPDF dependency is now optional on Laravel Datatables 7.0 and was transferred to Buttons plugin.
Buttons plugin will now give you a choice to install it or not.
This was as a
suggest since we now have an option to use
snappy as our pdf generator.
request property is now set as
protected. To access the request instance, use the getter method
$dataTable = Datatable::of(User::query());$request = $dataTable->getRequest();
