Understanding Laravel Middleware

Middleware in Laravel is a bridge between all the requests and responses. Or we can say that all the requests entering your application can be filtered by middlewares. Laravel has fewer built-in middleware such as VerifyCsrfToken. The VerifyCsrfToken middleware will check the CSRF Token on each and every POST requests and through an error if the CSRF Token missed or mismatched.

REST API and Passport Authentication with Laravel

REpresentational State Transfer or REST is an architectural style for providing standards between computer systems on the web. We need REST API’s to communicate over various mediums like web, desktop or mobile application through the same database. API’s do not maintain session state between requests, except use tokens to authenticate users requests.
