Laravel logical issue

Posted 1 week ago by vlauciani94

Imagine I have 2 controllers, UserController and PostController, however, I want to use a function which has a general use and doesn't thematically belong to any of those classes. Something like:

public function sum($numberOne, $numberTwo) {
    return $numberOne + $numberTwo;

Where am I supposed to create it in order to be able to use it in both UserController and PostController? I constantly read that it's a bad practice to call a controller method from another controller but I just can't figure out what's the alternative.

I could just create the function in each controller but then I'd be repeating myself and the code won't be easily maintainable.
