<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge">
    <title>Boostrap 5</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href={{ asset('css/bootstrap.min.css') }}>
</head>
<body>
    <div class="container">
        <div class="alert alert-success mt-5" role="alert">
            Boostrap 5 is working!
        </div>    
    </div>
    <script src="{{ asset('js/bootstrap.min.js') }}"></script>
</body>
</html>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Step 4: Adding Bootstrap 5 using Laravel Mix

In Laravel Mixing Bootstrap 5 Install is difficult than 1 and 2 method. you need to install first node npm if you do not have node npm package then install first other wise Laravel mix not working .

npm install  
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, you can see node_modules Folder it mean npm is working. Now we need to install bootstrap 5

npm install bootstrap@next --save-dev 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next,we need run one more command npm install @popperjs/core --save-dev

npm install @popperjs/core --save-dev
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

After, you can see in package.json

"devDependencies": {
        "@popperjs/core": "^2.9.2",
        "axios": "^0.21",
        "bootstrap": "^5.0.0-beta3",
        "laravel-mix": "^6.0.6",
        "lodash": "^4.17.19",
        "postcss": "^8.1.14"
    }
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, you need to create folder scss inside app.scss file.resources/scss/app.scss put @import "~bootstrap/scss/bootstrap";

 @import "~bootstrap/scss/bootstrap";
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, For Js you need to add only resources/js/bootstrap.js put import "bootstrap";

window._ = require("lodash");
import "bootstrap";
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then,run last command

npx mix
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

you can see

<!DOCTYPE html>
