Middleware provide a convenient mechanism for inspecting and filtering HTTP requests entering your application. For example, Goravel provides a CORS middleware, which can implement requests across domains.

Define Middleware

You can create your own middleware in the app/http/middleware directory, the structure is as follows.

package middleware

import (

func Cors() http.Middleware {
  return func(ctx http.Context) {
    method := ctx.Request().Method()
    origin := ctx.Request().Header("Origin", "")
    if origin != "" {
      ctx.Response().Header("Access-Control-Allow-Origin", "*")
      ctx.Response().Header("Access-Control-Allow-Methods", "POST, GET, OPTIONS, PUT, DELETE, UPDATE")
      ctx.Response().Header("Access-Control-Allow-Headers", "*")
      ctx.Response().Header("Access-Control-Expose-Headers", "Content-Length, Access-Control-Allow-Origin, Access-Control-Allow-Headers, Authorization")
      ctx.Response().Header("Access-Control-Max-Age", "172800")
      ctx.Response().Header("Access-Control-Allow-Credentials", "true")

    if method == "OPTIONS" {


Create Middleware By Command

go run . artisan make:middleware Cors
go run . artisan make:middleware user/Cors

Register Middleware

Global Middleware

If you want to apply middleware for every HTTP request of your application, you only need to register the middleware in the Middleware in the app/http/kernel.go file.

// app/http/kernel.go
package http

import (

type Kernel struct {

func (kernel *Kernel) Middleware() []http.Middleware {
  return []http.Middleware{

Assign Middleware for Routing

You can register the middleware for some routing separately:

import "github.com/goravel/framework/http/middleware"

facades.Route().Middleware(middleware.Cors()).Get("users", userController.Show)
