No ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ header – Laravel

XMLHttpRequest cannot load http://myapi/api/rating. Response to preflight request doesn’t pass access control check: No ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ header is present on the requested resource. Origin ‘http://localhost:8104‘ is therefore not allowed access. The response had HTTP status code 403.

I can’t figure out why I can’t make CORS requests. I’ve install the middleware here, added it to the global http kernel, but it still doesn’t work. Tried to create a custom middleware given stackoverflow suggestions but that also did not work. Also tried adding a Route group. Lastly, I tried setting the response headers manually in the request action. I’m really stuck – help is appreciated!

Answer

If you are using Laravel 5.5 & Laravel 5.x and facing same problem like No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Just use following package and config your system.

Step 1:

composer require barryvdh/laravel-cors

Step 2

You also need to add CorsServiceProvider to your config/app.php providers array:

FruitCakeCorsCorsServiceProvider::class,

To allow CORS for all your routes, add the HandleCors middleware in the $middleware property of app/Http/Kernel.php class:

For global uses:

protected $middleware = [
    // ...
    FruitcakeCorsHandleCors::class,
];

For middleware uses:

protected $middlewareGroups = [
   'web' => [
       // ...
   ],

   'api' => [
        // ...
        FruitcakeCorsHandleCors::class,
    ],
];

Step 3

Once your installation completed run below command to publish the vendor files.

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="FruitcakeCorsServiceProvider"

Hope this answer helps someone facing the same problem as myself.
