Websolutionstuff | Nov-01-2020 | Categories : Laravel

In this article, we will give you information about the basic route, named route, and advanced route in laravel 7 and laravel 8.

Routing is a basic and important component of the laravel framework, All laravel routes are determined in the file located as the app/Http/routes.php file, here I will show you routing - laravel 7/8 routing example and how to create routes in laravel. Also, we will see the laravel routing parameter with an example.

Basic Routing


Route::get('test', function () {
	    return 'This is Test Route';


The Default Route Files

All laravel routes are defined in your route files, which are located in the "routes" Folder. And in this route folder laravel gives different files like api.php, web.php, etc.



Example of Laravel 8 Route


use App\Http\Controllers\UserController;

	Route::get('/test', [TestController::class, 'index']);


In Laravel Available Basic Route Methods


Route::get($url, $callback);
Route::post($url, $callback);
Route::put($url, $callback);
Route::patch($url, $callback);
Route::delete($url, $callback);
Route::options($url, $callback);


Laravel Route Match and Any Methods


Route::match(['get', 'post'], '/', function () {

	Route::any('/', function () {


Laravel Redirect Routes Example

Laravel provides default redirection of any URL. If you want to redirect to another URL you may use the laravel "Route::redirect" method.

Example of Laravel Route::redirect

Route::redirect('/create', '/index');

 Laravel Also provides a redirect route with a status code but the status code is an optional parameter.

Route::redirect('/create', '/index', 301);



Laravel View Routes Example

If your route only needs to return a view, you may use the "Route::view" method.

Route::view('/index', 'index');

Route::view('/welcome', 'welcome', ['name' => 'name']);


Laravel Named Routes Example


Route::get('user/profile', function () {

Route::get('user/profile', [UserController::class, 'index'])->name('profile');



Assign middleware to all routes within a group using the "middleware" method before defining the group.

Route::middleware(['role'])->group(function () {
	    Route::get('user/profile', function () {
		// Uses role middleware...



Route Prefixes

The prefixes method is used to prefix the given URL of the route.

Route::prefix('admin')->group(function () {
	    Route::get('users', function () {
		// Matches The "/admin/users" URL


Route Model Binding


Route::get('user/{id}', function (App\Models\User $user) {
    return $user->email;


Rate Limiting
  • Laravel provide powerful and customizable rate limiting services that you may utilize to restrict the amount of traffic for a given route or group of routes.
  • Rate limiters are using the "RateLimiter" facade's "for" method.

Example of Rate Limit

use Illuminate\Cache\RateLimiting\Limit;
	use Illuminate\Support\Facades\RateLimiter;

	RateLimiter::for('global', function (Request $request) {
	    return Limit::perMinute(1500);


Rate Limit with Custom Response


RateLimiter::for('global', function (Request $request) {
	    return Limit::perMinute(1000)->response(function () {
		return response('Example of Custom response...', 429);


Current Route

Laravel provides an inbuilt method for getting current information on the route. You can get information about the current route using the inbuilt method of the route.

$current_route = Route::current();

$current_route_name = Route::currentRouteName();

$current_route_action = Route::currentRouteAction();
