The GhostBuster of your exception page!

It displays a GIF instead of Symfony's ghost on exception page and it's compatible with Symfony versions from 4.4 to latest. Here is what it looks like :

Demo Symfony  4.4

Be aware that we can not be held responsible for any loss of productivity during development.


composer require jolicode/gif-exception-bundle --dev

Now enjoy your exceptions \o/

Add some more gifs!

We need you to improve the included GIFs! Do not hesitate to open PRs to add more gifs in Resources/public/images/, it will be very welcomed! 😉

Optimizing gifs

If you are adding gifs we strongly recommend optimizing them. There is a tool to aid with this (you will need to install gifsicle).


You can also run this from a Symfony project if you have this as an installed bundle via:

bin/console jolicode:gifexception:optimize

Although it would probably make more sense to use the former and push up the optimized gifs.

It uses gifsicle to optimize gifs via the image-optimizer library.
