Cached urls

By default, the last visited URL visited by a user is saved in Session. URLs must follow these criteria to be saved:

- Only GET requests are saved.
- AJAX requests are not saved.
- If the user is logged in, no urls are saved.

Excluding urls from the cache

If you want to exclude certain urls from the url cache, like for example the login and signup pages, you may use the provided "doNotSave" middleware:

// app/Http/routes.php

Route::get('/login', ['middleware' => 'doNotSave', 'uses' => 'AuthController@login']);

Redirecting after login

To redirect the user to the last saved url, such as after authentication, you may use:

public function login() {
	/** Auth user **/
	if ($success) {
