Routes

Definition & Principles#

Read from the Porto SAP Documentation (#Routes).

Rules#

  • API Route files MUST be named according to their API's versions, exposure and functionality. Example CreateOrder.v1.public.php, FulfillOrder.v2.public.php, CancelOrder.v1.private.php...

  • Web Route files are pretty similar to API web files, but they can be named anything.

Web Routes#

Example: Endpoint to display a Hello View in the browser

<?php
$router->get('/hello', [
'uses' => '[email protected]',
]);

In all the Web Routes files the $router variable is an instance of the default Laravel Router Illuminate\Routing\Router.

API Routes#

Example: User Login API Endpoint

<?php
$router->post('login', [
'uses' => '[email protected]',
]);

Example: Protected List All Users API Endpoint, for an API Routes file

<?php
$router->get('users', [
'uses' => '[email protected]',
'middleware' => [
'api.auth',
]
]);

Protect your Endpoints:#

Checkout the Authorization Page.

Difference between Public & Private routes files#

apiato has 2 types of endpoints, Public (External) mainly for third parties clients, and Private (Internal) for your own Apps. This will help to generate separate documentations for each and keep your internal API private.
