Automatically Route Generator & Discovery Package for Laravel.

Features

  • All HTTP Methods which supported by Laravel
  • AJAX supported HTTP Methods (XMLHttpRequest)
  • Custom patterns for parameters with Regex
  • kebab-case and snake_case supported URLs
  • Livewire routes support [included Volt] (in v2.x)

Install

Supported Laravel Versions:

  • v2.x: Laravel 10 and later
  • v1.x: Laravel 6 and later (see the source)

Run the following command directly in your Project path:

$ composer require izniburak/laravel-auto-routes

OR open your composer.json file and add the package like this:

{
    "require": {
        "izniburak/laravel-auto-routes": "^2.0"
    }
}

after run the install command.

$ composer install

The service provider of the Package will be automatically discovered by Laravel.

After that, you should publish the config file via following command:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Buki\AutoRoute\AutoRouteServiceProvider"

Greate! You can start to use Auto Route Package.

Usage

Open web.php or api.php files in routes directory, and add a new route that will be generated automatically:

Route::auto('/test', 'TestController');

All methods will be automatically generated by the AutoRoute Package.

Details

  • You can use auto-route.php file in config directory in order to change configuration of the Package. You can;

    • add new patterns for the parameters of the methods.
    • change default HTTP methods.
    • change main method.
  • You can use Buki\AutoRoute\Facades\Route in web.php and api.php in order to simple code completion for the method while using an IDE or Editor. You can add/replace the following line to top of the file:

// use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use Buki\AutoRoute\Facades\Route;
  • All methods which will be auto generated must have public accessor to discovered by the AutoRoute Package.

Methods

  • If you use camelCase style for your method names in the Controllers, these methods endpoints will automatically convert to kebab-case to make pretty URLs. For example:
Route::auto('/test', 'TestController');
# OR
Route::auto('/test', TestController::class);
namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class TestController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * URL will be converted to "/test/foo-bar"
     */
    public function fooBar(Request $request)
    {
        // your codes
    }
}
  • You can specify HTTP Method for the method of the Controllers. If you want that a method works with GET method and other method works with POST method, you can do it. Just add a prefix for the method. That's all. For example;
namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class TestController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * URL: "/test/foo-bar"
     * This method will only work with 'GET' method. 
     */
    public function getFooBar(Request $request)
    {
        // your codes
    }
    
    /**
     * URL: "/test/bar-baz"
     * This method will only work with 'POST' method. 
     */
    public function postBarBaz(Request $request)
    {
        // your codes
    }
}
  • If you don't add any prefix to your methods to use HTTP method definition, all URL will work with all HTTP methods. This options can be changed from auto-route.php configuration file.

  • If you want to use snake_case format for your methods, you can do it like that:

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class TestController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * URL: "/test/foo_bar"
     * This method will only work with 'GET' method. 
     */
    public function get_foo_bar(Request $request)
    {
        // your codes
    }
    
    /**
     * URL: "/test/bar_baz"
     * This method will only work with 'POST' method. 
     */
    public function post_bar_baz(Request $request)
    {
        // your codes
    }
}

Ajax Supported Methods

Also, you can add AJAX supported routes. For example; If you want to have a route which only access with GET method and XMLHttpRequest, you can define it simply. This package has some AJAX supported methods. These are;

XGET, XPOST, XPUT, XDELETE, XPATCH, XOPTIONS, XANY.
namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class TestController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * URL: "/test/foo"
     * This method will only work with 'GET' method and XMLHttpRequest.
     */
    public function xgetFoo(Request $request)
    {
        // your codes
    }
    
    /**
     * URL: "/test/bar"
     * This method will only work with 'POST' method and XMLHttpRequest.
     */
    public function xpostBar(Request $request)
    {
        // your codes
    }
    
    /**
     * URL: "/test/baz"
     * This method will work with any method and XMLHttpRequest. 
     */
    public function xanyBaz(Request $request)
    {
        // your codes
    }
}

As you see, you need to add only x char as prefix to define the AJAX supported routes. If you want to support XMLHttpRequest and all HTTP methods which supported by Laravel, you can use xany prefix.

For AJAX supported methods, the package will automatically add a middleware in order to check XMLHttpRequest for the routes. This middleware throws a MethodNotAllowedException exception. But, you can change this middleware from auto-routes.php file in config directory, if you want.

Options

  • You can add route options via third parameter of the auto method.
Route::auto('/test', 'TestController', [
    // your options... 
]);

Options array may contain all Laravel route attributes like name, middleware, namespace, etc..

In addition, you can add patterns into the Options array in order to define new patterns for the parameters of the methods in the Controllers. For example:

Route::auto('/test', 'TestController', [
    'name' => 'test',
    'middleware' => [YourMiddleware::class],
    'patterns' => [
        'id' => '\d+',
        'value' => '\w+',
    ],
]);

According to example above, you can use $id and $value parameters in all methods in the Controller. And for these parameters, the rules you defined will be applied.

Also, to define default patterns for the parameters, you can modify patterns in auto-route.php file.

  • You can specify the Routes which will be generated automatically by using only or except with options parameters. You should use method names in the Controllers. For example;
# First Example
Route::auto('/foo', 'FooController', [
    'only' => ['fooBar', 'postUpdatePost'],
]);

# Second Example
Route::auto('/bar', 'BarController', [
    'except' => ['test', 'putExample'],
]);

According to first example above, only two methods will be generated. And according to other example, all methods will be generated except two methods which specified.

  • If you don't change the main_method in configurations, your main method will be index for the Controllers. That's mean, you should be add index method into your controller to define base endpoint of the Controller. For example;
Route::auto('/test', 'TestController');
namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class TestController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * URL: "/test"
     */
    public function index(Request $request)
    {
        // your codes
    }
    
    /**
     * URL: "/test/foo-bar"
     */
    public function fooBar(Request $request)
    {
        // your codes
    }
}

Parameters

  • You can use parameters as required and optional for the methods in your Controllers. For example;
namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class TestController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * URL: "/test/{id}"
     */
    public function index(Request $request, $id)
    {
        // your codes
    }
    
    /**
     * URL: "/test/foo-bar/{name}/{surname?}"
     */
    public function fooBar(Request $request, $name, $surname = null)
    {
        // your codes
    }
}

Also, you can use parameter type to use compatible pattern for the parameter. Parameter types can be int, string, float and bool. For example:

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class TestController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * URL: "/test/{id}"
     * id parameter must be numeric.  
     */
    public function index(Request $request, int $id)
    {
        // your codes
    }
    
    /**
     * URL: "/test/foo-bar/{name}/{surname?}"
     * name and surname parameters must be string.
     */
    public function fooBar(Request $request, string $name, string $surname = null)
    {
        // your codes
    }
}

If you define patterns for these variable names in the auto-route.php configuration file, your definition will be used for the value checking.

To use int, float, string and bool patterns quickly for your parameters, you can use parameter type directly.

  • You can use subfolder definition for the Controllers. For example;
Route::auto('/test', 'Backend.TestController');
# OR
Route::auto('/test', 'Backend\\TestController');

Livewire & Volt support

You can define Livewire or Volt component routes directly in your controller by using Auto Routes package! For this, you should add new methods which have prefix volt or wire. That's it. Auto Routes package will automatically discover your Livewire routes and add them into the application routes.

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class TestController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * URL: "/test/foo"
     */
    public function voltFoo(): string
    {
        // resources/views/livewire/pages/foo.blade.php
        return 'pages.foo';
    }

    /**
     * URL: "/test/bar"
     */
    public function wireBar(): string
    {
        return \App\Livewire\TestComponent::class;
    }
}

As you see; for both methods, you must return a string value that Volt component path string or Livewire component class string. Now, you can access your Livewire components.
