Why you should JSON Encode and Decode in Livewire

Sometimes we have more columns in our table in the database, and we don’t want to create a new table for storing the related data in the other table on behalf of a primary key.

So, we have simple or easiest options to store multiple text field data into a single column in JSON format.

We simply store all of the request parameters into a single variable as an associative array in the pair of keys and values and store it in JSON Format in the database table in the Livewire Laravel application.
