different way to redirect

Posted 8 months ago by michaelnguyen547

I am looking at Illuminate/Routing/Redirector - the main actor that handlers redirect()

Need some gurus to help me understand the use case and when I should use guest, intended, away, action

    /**
     * Create a new redirect response, while putting the current URL in the session.
     *
     * @param  string  $path
     * @param  int     $status
     * @param  array   $headers
     * @param  bool    $secure
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\RedirectResponse
     */
    public function guest($path, $status = 302, $headers = [], $secure = null)
    {
        $request = $this->generator->getRequest();

        $intended = $request->method() == 'GET' && $request->route() && ! $request->expectsJson()
                        ? $this->generator->full()
                        : $this->generator->previous();

        if ($intended) {
            $this->session->put('url.intended', $intended);
        }

        return $this->to($path, $status, $headers, $secure);
    }

    /**
     * Create a new redirect response to the previously intended location.
     *
     * @param  string  $default
     * @param  int     $status
     * @param  array   $headers
     * @param  bool    $secure
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\RedirectResponse
     */
    public function intended($default = '/', $status = 302, $headers = [], $secure = null)
    {
        $path = $this->session->pull('url.intended', $default);

        return $this->to($path, $status, $headers, $secure);
    }

    /**
     * Create a new redirect response to an external URL (no validation).
     *
     * @param  string  $path
     * @param  int     $status
     * @param  array   $headers
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\RedirectResponse
     */
    public function away($path, $status = 302, $headers = [])
    {
        return $this->createRedirect($path, $status, $headers);
    }

    /**
     * Create a new redirect response to a controller action.
     *
     * @param  string|array  $action
     * @param  mixed   $parameters
     * @param  int     $status
     * @param  array   $headers
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\RedirectResponse
     */
    public function action($action, $parameters = [], $status = 302, $headers = [])
    {
        return $this->to($this->generator->action($action, $parameters), $status, $headers);
    }
