This package can automatically discover routes for controllers and views in your Laravel application. This isn't an all-in approach. While using use auto discovery, you can still register routes like you're used to.

// typically in a routes file


// other routes

Using PHP attributes you can manipulate discovered routes: you can set a route name, add some middleware, or ...

Here's how you would add middleware to a controller whose's route will be auto discovered.

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Routing\Middleware\ValidateSignature;
use Spatie\RouteDiscovery\Attributes\Route;

class MyController
    #[Route(middleware: ValidateSignature::class)]
    public function myMethod() { /* ... */ }

A note on performance

Discovering routes during each application request may have a small impact on performance. For increased performance, we highly recommend caching your routes as part of your deployment process.
