In Laravel 11, determining the current route name within your application is a straightforward process. Here are the common methods you can employ:

Get the Current Route Name Using the Route Facade

  • The Route facade provides a convenient way to access information about the route handling the incoming request.
  • Import the necessary namespace at the top of your controller, middleware, or Blade file:
    use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
  • Utilize the currentRouteName method to retrieve the name of the current route:
    $routeName = Route::currentRouteName();
    if ($routeName === '') {
        // Perform actions specific to the '' route


Checking Current Route Name Within the Request Object (Blade Templates)

  • Inside Blade templates, you can leverage the request object to access route information.
  • No need for additional imports as request is automatically available in Blade views.
  • Employ the routeIs method to verify if the current route matches a specific name:
    @if (request()->routeIs('articles.edit'))


Key Points:

  • Remember to define route names when registering routes in your routes/web.php file (or other route files) using the as option:
    Route::get('/products/{id}', ['as' => '', 'uses' => 'ProductController@show']);


  • These methods effectively retrieve the name assigned to the route that's handling the current request.

  • Choose the approach that best aligns with your specific context (controllers, middleware, or Blade templates).

By following these steps, you can effortlessly determine the current route name in your Laravel 11 application, enabling you to tailor your application's behavior based on the active route.
