This class is a middleware that can disallow HTTP requests that do not accept JSON.

It checks the current HTTP request to check the values for the Accept header.

The class will return HTTP status 400 if the application/json MIME type is not in the headers that the client accepts.

There are certain types of applications, like for instance APIs, that only serve data values as responses.

JSON is nowadays a common format to serve HTTP responses with data values represented as text.

When an API application is only meant to serve JSON based responses, it is useful to refuse serving requests from clients that are not ready to take JSON based responses, like for instance requests from regular browsers that expect HTML pages.

This package provides a solution that can be used in Laravel based applications to refuse serving HTTP requests from clients that are not ready to handle JSON based responses.
