Laravel 5.5 shipped a couple of convenient shortcuts to the Laravel
Router class that eliminates the need for creating a controller or closure only to return a simple view or redirect. If you missed them in the release notes, let’s look at them briefly, they are sure to simplify your code and remove a couple of files.
Route::view method eliminates the need for routes that only need a view returned. Instead of using a controller or a closure, you can define a URI and a path to a view file:
// resources/views/pages/about.blade.php Route::view('/about', 'pages.about');
You can also pass in an array of variables that will be passed to the view:
Route::view('/about', 'pages.about', ['year' => date('Y')]);
Route::redirect method also eliminates the need to create a controller or a closure only to return a redirect response:
The third default argument, if not passed, is a
301 redirect. However, you can pass the third argument for a different status code. For example, if you want to create a
307 Temporary Redirect, it would look like this:
Route::redirect('/old-about', '/about', 307);
