Laravel Telescope Toolbar

Unit Tests Packagist License Latest Stable Version Total Downloads Fruitcake

Extends Laravel Telescope to show a powerful Toolbar



First install Telescope and check it works (see

composer require laravel/telescope
php artisan telescope:install

# Telescope 5.0 no longer automatically loads migrations from its own migrations directory. Instead, you should run the following command to publish Telescope's migrations to your application:
php artisan vendor:publish --tag=telescope-migrations

php artisan migrate

Then just install the package with Composer and it will register automatically:

composer require fruitcake/laravel-telescope-toolbar --dev

The Toolbar will show by default when Telescope is enabled and APP_DEBUG is true. It can also enabled or disabled using the TELESCOPE_TOOLBAR_ENABLED environment variable.


Note: The Toolbar is intended for Development environments, not for production.

Run this command to publish the config for this package:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Fruitcake\\TelescopeToolbar\\ToolbarServiceProvider"
