Scaffold comes with a fully functional API layer. It handles authentication using basic auth using user generated tokens. Tokens can be reset and are encrypted so they're only visible on the moment of reset.


The build endpoints uses the api.php routes. In only contains 3 endpoints by default.


Each has separate handles and the output of the me endpoint uses the UserResource for handling its explicit output.

Base Controller

The base controller for the API controllers contains in the constructor method a handling which sets the user property of the controller to the auth('api')->user(). This way you don't have to keep rewriting that accessor.
