npm install --save-dev bootstrap@^4.0.0-beta popper.js

Bootstrap.js

Navigate to your resources/assets/js/bootstrap.js file and find the section.
window.$ = window.jQuery = require('jquery');
require('bootstrap-sass');
Replace this with the following.
 window.$ = window.jQuery = require('jquery');

require('bootstrap');
