php - Change charset in Laravel


Is there a way to change the default charset (UTF-8) to ISO-8859-1 in Laravel Framework?

I already tried:

Adding headers to routes;

$headers = array("Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1");
Route::get('/notificacao/nova','[email protected]', $headers);



I had your same problem and solved it adding a middleware which replaces UTF-8 with ISO-8859-1 in the Content-Type charset header.

I created a new middleware class, namedCharsetMiddleware, with these contents:

namespace App\Http\Middleware;

use Closure;

class CharsetMiddleware
    public function handle($request, Closure $next)
        $response = $next($request);
        $contentType = $response->headers->get('Content-Type');
        if (!empty($contentType)) {
            $response->header('Content-Type', str_replace('UTF-8', 'iso-8859-1', $contentType));
        return $response;

I put it in app/Http/Middleware/ folder, and then in app/Http/Kernel.php class added the class reference at the end of$middleware array property, like this:

protected $middleware = [
    // ... Other middleware references
