I'm wondering how authentication works in Laravel, specifically with ajax requests. Is the logged in user info saved in the session? If so, does the session work with ajax requests?
I'd like to refer to a lesson: https://laracasts.com/series/lets-build-a-forum-with-laravel/episodes/32?autoplay=true
It seems that it just works even with ajax requests, but I would've expected ajax requests to be different from regular form submissions. How does Laravel know about the user on an ajax request? Would this be different if it was an SPA instead of a blade template?
