Menu Builder Usage Example - displays the builder

A basic two-level menu can be displayed in your blade template

Using Model Class
/* get menu by id*/
$menu = Menus::find(1);
/* or by name */
$menu = Menus::where('name','Test Menu')->first();

/* or get menu by name and the items with EAGER LOADING (RECOMENDED for better performance and less query call)*/
$menu = Menus::where('name','Test Menu')->with('items')->first();
/*or by id */
$menu = Menus::where('id', 1)->with('items')->first();

//you can access by model result
$public_menu = $menu->items;

//or you can convert it to array
$public_menu = $menu->items->toArray();
or Using helper
// Using Helper 
$public_menu = Menu::getByName('Public'); //return array

Menu Usage Example (b)

Now inside your blade template file place the menu using this simple example

<div class="nav-wrap">
    <div class="btn-menu">
    </div><!-- //mobile menu button -->
    <nav id="mainnav" class="mainnav">

        <ul class="menu">
            @foreach($public_menu as $menu)
            <li class="">
                <a href="{{ $menu['link'] }}" title="">{{ $menu['label'] }}</a>
                @if( $menu['child'] )
                <ul class="sub-menu">
                    @foreach( $menu['child'] as $child )
                        <li class=""><a href="{{ $child['link'] }}" title="">{{ $child['label'] }}</a></li>
                </ul><!-- /.sub-menu -->

    </nav><!-- /#mainnav -->
 </div><!-- /.nav-wrap -->
