A few days ago Laracasts released a routing best practices video:
Let’s take some time to review a number of best practices, when it comes to how you structure your app’s routing layer.
This video has a bunch of great tips. It also helped clarify the disagreement I started on Twitter when I said that I didn’t like named routes. :) It’s been rare that I ever changed routes. So thinking about it from a management/client angle I can see why that would be very useful.
