Social Card of Laravel Activity Log

Log activity inside your Laravel app

Latest Version on Packagist GitHub Workflow Status Check & fix styling Total Downloads

The spatie/laravel-activitylog package provides easy to use functions to log the activities of the users of your app. It can also automatically log model events. The Package stores all activity in the activity_log table.

Here's a demo of how you can use it:

activity()->log('Look, I logged something');

You can retrieve all activity using the Spatie\Activitylog\Models\Activity model.

Activity::all();

Here's a more advanced example:

activity()
   ->performedOn($anEloquentModel)
   ->causedBy($user)
   ->withProperties(['customProperty' => 'customValue'])
   ->log('Look, I logged something');

$lastLoggedActivity = Activity::all()->last();

$lastLoggedActivity->subject; //returns an instance of an eloquent model
$lastLoggedActivity->causer; //returns an instance of your user model
$lastLoggedActivity->getExtraProperty('customProperty'); //returns 'customValue'
$lastLoggedActivity->description; //returns 'Look, I logged something'

Here's an example on event logging.

$newsItem->name = 'updated name';
$newsItem->save();

//updating the newsItem will cause the logging of an activity
$activity = Activity::all()->last();

$activity->description; //returns 'updated'
$activity->subject; //returns the instance of NewsItem that was saved

Calling $activity->changes() will return this array:

[
   'attributes' => [
        'name' => 'updated name',
        'text' => 'Lorum',
    ],
    'old' => [
        'name' => 'original name',
        'text' => 'Lorum',
    ],
];
