How to make multiple routes share the same URL structure or URL parameters

Laravel: How to make multiple routes share the same URL structure or URL parameters

If you have the following URLs:

/control-panel/{team_id}/
/control-panel/{team_id}/schedule
/control-panel/{team_id}/delete
        etc...

(They all share the first part of the url - /control-panel/{team_id})

Then you don't have to write out the routes like this:

  1. Route::get("control-panel/{team_id}","[email protected]");
  2. Route::get("control-panel/{team_id}/schedule","[email protected]");
  3. Route::delete("control-panel/{team_id}/delete","[email protected]");

Instead you can group the routes and add a prefix:

  1. Route::group(["prefix"=>"control-panel/{team_id}"], function() {
  2.     Route::get("/","[email protected]");
  3.     Route::get("schedule","[email protected]");
  4.     Route::delete("delete","[email protected]");
  5. });

Putting a group within a group

You can also put a Route::group() inside another one.

  1. Route::group(["prefix"=>"control-panel/{team_id}"], function() {
  2.     Route::get("/","[email protected]");
  3.  
  4.     Route::group(["prefix"=>"schedule"],function() {
  5.         Route::get("/","[email protected]");
  6.         Route::post("/add_new","[email protected]");
  7.     }
  8.     Route::delete("delete","[email protected]");
  9. });
