syntax error, unexpected 'class' (T_CLASS) in Laravel Cart

Posted 1 month ago by WebbieWorks

I am trying to install a this shopping cart using Laravel but I am getting an error and I cannot figure it out. I have triple checked all my routes and they all seem to be what they should be. I have been searching everywhere for this, but what I can find, it actually shows where the error is, like "unexpected error in (error location).

syntax error, unexpected 'class' (T_CLASS)

This is my QuoteController (some code removed for space)

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Product;
use Gloudemans\Shoppingcart\Facades\Cart;

class QuoteController extends Controller
public function index()
        return view('quote');
public function store(Request $request)
        Quote::add($request->$id, $request->name)

        return redirect()->route('quote.index')->with('success_message', 'Item was add to quote!');

My routes in web.php look correct.

Route::get('/quote.php', '[email protected]')->name('quote.index');
Route::post('/quote.php', '[email protected]')->name('');

Also, here is the code for the button.

<form action="{{ route('') }}" method="POST">
                {{ csrf_field() }}
                <input type="hidden" name="id" value="{{ $product->id }}">
                <input type="hidden" name="name" value="{{ $product->name }}">
                <button type="submit" class="btn btn-lg valBtn text-uppercase">Request Quote</button>

Both the error and the word quote (the return view('quote'); ) are in light green so I believe that is the issue, but I cannot find what could be causing the error. I am just now learning laravel with the help of this video.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciate.
