Create a Dynamic URL and Redirect to it in Laravel

So basically this is what I need. I have a router definition like this.

Route::get('view/{postId}', 'PostController@view');

Above router definition will get triggered if the url we request is
. But what I want is I want to appear this url like
(Ex :

, I will get the post using the id passed and thus can generate the url what I need. Here is the problem begins. As you can see, I need to redirect to a dynamic url which will look differently for each post. I want to redirect to this dynamic urls but these urls are not defined inside

Is this possible in Laravel ?

In short, what I need is, I want to update
array with my dynamically generated url value with corresponding controller action in run time before I am invoking

If you need further clarification, I will do it for sure. Please give me your suggestions.

it is simpler than you are thinking.

Route::get('{category}/{title}',['uses' => 'FooController@bar']);

This should be the last route defined in your route list. Any other route should go upper than this one.

this will match www.domain.com/music/easy-chords-in-guitar

rest routes define as you want.


Route::get('/',['uses' => 'FooController@home']);
Route::get('about',['uses' => 'FooController@about']);
Route::get('contact',['uses' => 'FooController@contact']);

Route::get('{category}/{title}',['uses' => 'FooController@bar']);
