Add index() method in the controller • Create new product endpoints by adding a function inside index() method. Here you are creating products. • You will be using two custom functions in the code: uploadImageToCloudinary() and updateDatabase() • First one uploads image to Cloudinary and second one will persist and flush data.
  5. 5. List All Products • Create a function to fetch and list all the products. • The function will return a JSON response to list the products. • The JSON response will be looped through React so it is displayed correctly to the users. • This will be done in Product Controller created earlier. • Inside the Product Controller, there is ProductRepository which will be created later. • Inside index(), add a constructor method and the mentioned private properties.
