PHP Question

Laravel same route, different controller

I would like to have general home page
and a different homepage for logged-in users

I search a lot on google but I can't find what to put in my if statement

I tried something like this:

Route::get('/', array('as'=>'home', function(){
if (!Auth::check()) {
Route::get('/', array('uses'=>'homecontroller@index'));
Route::get('/', array('uses'=>'usercontroller@home'));

I also try with something like:

return Controller::call('homecontroller@index');

but it seems it's not for laravel 4

I tried a lot of other things so I think it's more a misconception problem

If you have any clue

thanks for your help


The most simple solution I can think of is:


$uses = 'HomeController@index';
if( ! Auth::check())
    $uses = 'HomeController@home';

Route::get('/', array(
    ,'uses'=> $uses

Or you can just route the url / to method index() and do the Auth::check() in there.
