Laracasts User Profile URL Structure (/@Username)

Posted 1 year ago by Tipoff

What's the best practice for setting up user profiles with a URL structure of /@Username like that used here on Laracasts or on Medium? In Laravel, what would I insert in the route file?

On a side note, what are the SEO implications of using the @ sign in a URL? Are there any negative consequences for search engine readability?

Did you know that, in addition to the forum, Laracasts includes well over 1000 lessons on modern web development? All for the price of one lunch out per month.
