This is a quick note - intended to be a memory jogger.
Laravel will throw a ReflectionException error if a class contains an error.
ReflectionException in Route.php line 339: Class App\Http\Requests\CreateLeadRequest does not exist
This is pretty logical - if the class can’t be instantiated, it doesn’t exist.
It can be confusing if you’re looking at your project file tree and can see the class file (“I can see it - the class exists!”). In my case, I checked the calling class several times before bothering to check the content of the class that was being called - which was missing a comma.
To prevent this kind of thing:
- Use a PHP linter - here’s one for Atom
- Check all the classes involved, especially the one you’re calling - don’t assume you’ve got an autoloading issue
