BadMethodCallException in Macroable.php line 81: Method filter does not exist.

Route::filter('birthday', function()
{
    if (true) {
        return View::make('birthday');
    }
});
Route::get('/', array(
    'before' => 'birthday',
    function()
    {
       return View::make('welcome');
    }
));

route filters are not going away entirely after Laravel 5.0 However, middleware is now the preferred way to achieve the same functionality. See http://laravel.com/docs/master/middleware for info about how to use it. Middleware can be implemented to behave like either "before" or "after" filters. And it can be applied to all routes (called "global middleware"), or assigned to specific routes (by adding "'middleware' => 'auth'" for example to your route definitions in your routes.php file.
