This package requires a basic understanding of Laravel Passport.


  1. Add this package in your project.
  2. Now add the trait CanHaveAPIEndPoints in the controller that will contribute in the mobile service. You can also add this trait in the base controller and use it. Now you can use returnFormattedResponse method to send the respose. This function will check the request and send the reponse accordingly.

Handling web responses only

The first argument is the array of data you pass to the view. The second argument is the view name.

return $this->returnFormattedResponse(['projects' => $projects], 'project.index');

Handling both web and API responses

Use two closures for sending different responses for web and api.

return $this->returnFormattedResponse(
    function () {
       // api response here
    function () {
       // web response here

Exception Handling

For clear error responses you need to add the trait in the App\Exceptions\Handler class and add the following code snippt in report method.

public function render($request, Exception $exception)
    if($this->isApi()) {
        return $this->renderErrorResponseForAPI($exception);
    return parent::render($request, $exception);

Auth Middleware

If you want to set the auth user for every authenticated route then add RestApiMiddleware in your project and apply in on routes.

In kernel.php

'restapi' => ColoredCow\LaravelMobileAPI\RestAPIMiddleware::class,

In routes/api.php file

Route::group(['middleware' => ['auth:api', 'restapi:auth'] ], function () {
    // routes
