Laravel Validators Package

Published on

Recently, I created a package for Laravel called Route Redirect Helper, which adds a Route::redirect() macro to the router so you don’t have to create a closure for each simple redirect in your application. After using my helper for a bit I noticed that I could simplify something else I do in most projects, which is create a PagesController to handle all static pages like FAQs, Terms, License, etc.

To reduce the number of overly-simple controllers I have in my applications, I created a new package for Laravel called Route View Helper, which allows me to turn the former into the latter:

The old way

Route::get('/terms', function () {
  return view('pages.terms');

The new way

Route::view('/terms', 'pages.terms');

The package uses an internal controller so you can still cache your routes.
