Can’t find routes.php in Laravel 5

A video on Laracast says that routes.php is inside ./app/Http/.
Can’t find it.

I’m trying to figure it out and update this post! 🙂


OK!, almost 24hours later…
But!, I hadn’t been all this time looking for the solution.

YES!, I’v seen it before and tried but didn’t worked…

I was trying to use Laravel Annotation, but with no success.

OK!, heres the real sh*t.

We can have routes.php on Laravel 5 inside app/Http.

We need to active it on app/Providers/RouteServiceProvider.php, by uncomment require app_path(‘Http/routes.php’);.

You will need to update the “route:list” or what they call…
This is how…

php artisan clear-compiled
php artisan route:scan

and list them on console…

php artisan route:list

Your routes should work now.

How to install Laravel 5 5.0-dev / 4.3

Since we need composer, lets install it.

We have to have installed curl and php-cli on our server.

  • curl
    apt-get install curl
  • php-cli
    apt-get install php5-cli

Lets now install composer.

curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php

Lets now move composer to /user/local/bin/composer so we can run it anywhere in the system.

mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

Inside the folder that we want to put Laravel 5, in my case /home/webroot/domain.com/www2/ lets run

/usr/local/bin/composer create-project laravel/laravel www2 dev-develop

Simple and fast.


Inside the folder, that we installer laravel /home/webroot/domain.com/www2 lets run

php artisan -V

HOORAY! Laravel Framework version 5.0-dev!




Laravel, confide translations / new names – confide::confide

So, imagine that we are using Laravel and creating a new form…

 <div class="form-group">
 <label for="nif">{{{ Lang::get('confide::confide.nif') }}}</label>
 <input class="form-control" placeholder="{{{ Lang::get('confide::confide.nif') }}}" type="text"
 name="nif" id="nif" value="{{{ Input::old('nif') }}}">

We will see returned confide::confide.nif and not anything else…
How do we solve this?

Inside /app/lang/pt/ (pt is my default language… you should use yours…….) create the following file: confide.php and with a structure like the other files (duplicate,rename and change it) inside that folder create the new entries…

return array(
 | Confide Language Lines
 | The following language lines contain the default error messages used by
 | the validator class. Some of these rules have multiple versions such
 | such as the size rules. Feel free to tweak each of these messages.
 "nome_completo" => "Nome completo",
 "morada" => "Morada",
 "nif" => "NIF",
 "email_confirmacao" => "Email Confirmação",

We now, have to CALL confide.nif and not confide::confide.nif.
