In this file i check first if user is not login then it will redirect home route and other if user have not is_admin = 1 then it will redirect home route too.


namespace AppHttpMiddleware;

use Closure;

use Auth;

class IsAdminMiddleware



* Handle an incoming request.


* @param IlluminateHttpRequest $request

* @param Closure $next

* @return mixed


public function handle($request, Closure $next)


if(!Auth::check() || Auth::user()->is_admin != '1'){

return redirect()->route('home');


return $next($request);
