Laravel ajax setup for jQuery and Angular

Request::ajax() = True when:

    "X-Requested-With" : "XMLHttpRequest"

Request::wantsJson() = True when:

Note: laravel looks for “json” in the first accept parameter.

    "Accept" : "application/json"

Both are true if

    "X-Requested-With" : "XMLHttpRequest",
    "Accept" : "application/json"

Global jQuery setup

This will add the proper headers to all jQuery$.ajax $.get $.post calls in your app.


    headers: {
        "X-Requested-With" : "XMLHttpRequest",
        accept: "application/json"

The headers can be overridden and appended in the indivdual calls.

Global Angular setup

This will add the proper headers to all Angular http calls in your app.

app.config(['$httpProvider', function($httpProvider){

    $httpProvider.defaults.headers.common["X-Requested-With"] = 'XMLHttpRequest';

    $httpProvider.defaults.headers.common["accept"] = 'application/json';
