Disable the CSRF token in Laravel 5

Just a #HTH

Often when you’re devving’ forms in Laravel a quick refresh of the page rightly errors on the CSRF token. This is a bit of a bummer if you want to keep testing the same request, so all I do is…

Goto App/Http/Kernel.php and comment out,

// 'AppHttpMiddlewareVerifyCsrfToken',

Then you can dev to your heart’s content, just remember to un-comment it! Maybe write a unit test to check it’s on before allowing you to push or create a merge request. Like one that alters the hidden field and submits.
