Laravel 5.4: Fluent Routing

routing Laravel 5.x Laravel 5.4

Laravel 5.4 has released another pretty cool routing improvement. In this post, I would like to show you the improved fluent Registering Routes.

In the past, you used to define a named route like this at the end of the closure -

Route::get('projects/{id}', function ($id) {

Now you can define it at the beginning, as shown below -

Route::name('myProjects')->get('projects/{id}', function ($id) {

Same way you can define your middleware also, here the example-

Route::middleware('auth')->get('projects/{id}', function ($id) {

You can chain and use together both middleware and named routes, as shown below -

middleware('auth')->get('projects', function () {
    // some closure action...

Registering a middleware with a route prefix and group

Route::middleware('auth')->prefix('api')->group(function () {
    // register some routes...

Registering a middleware to a resource controller

Route::middleware('auth')->resource('project', 'ProjectController');
