Route::get('/category-list', [TestSweetalertController::class, 'index']);
Route::get('/category-delete/{id}', [TestSweetalertController::class, 'delete']);

         @if(isset($category) && !empty($category))
         @foreach ($category as $key => $data )
            <td>{{ $data->name }}</td>
               <a href="/category-delete/{{$data->id}}" class="btn btn-danger delete-confirm" role="button">Delete</a>
   $('.delete-confirm').on('click', function (event) {
      const url = $(this).attr('href');
          title: 'Are you sure?',
          text: 'This record and it`s details will be permanantly deleted!',
          icon: 'warning',
          buttons: ["Cancel", "Yes!"],
          }).then(function(value) {
