Laravel: How to get a route to directly show a view?

If you have a simple controller method that is just:

  1. public function about_me() {
  2.                 return view('static.about_me');
  3.                 }

Then you can do the following in your routes file:

  1. Route::view('/about','static.about_me');

This makes it a bit quicker to code. Sometimes it is common to end up with a bunch of functions (in a controller named something like StaticPagesController) that don't do anything apart from return a view. Using the Route::view method in your routes file means you can skip making that function.
