Laravel Stats

Buy us a tree

Get insights about your Laravel or Lumen Project.



The easiest way to install the package is by using composer. The package requires PHP 7.3, Laravel 7.0 or higher or Lumen 7.0 or higher.

Due to version conflicts, stats can't be installed in Laravel 7 projects which are running with phpunit 8. Phpunit 9 is required.

composer require "wnx/laravel-stats" --dev

The package will automatically register itself.

If you're using Lumen you have to manually register the Service Provider in your bootstrap/app.php file:


Optionally, you can publish the config file of this package with this command (Laravel only):

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Wnx\LaravelStats\StatsServiceProvider"

The following config file will be published in config/stats.php


return [

     * List of folders to be analyzed.
    'paths' => [

     * List of files/folders to be excluded from analysis.
    'exclude' => [
        // base_path('app/helpers.php'),
        // base_path('app/Services'),

     * List of your custom Classifiers
    'custom_component_classifier' => [
        // \App\Classifiers\CustomerExportClassifier::class

     * The Strategy used to reject Classes from the project statistics.
     * By default all Classes located in
     * the vendor directory are being rejected and don't
     * count to the statistics.
     * The package ships with 2 strategies:
     * - \Wnx\LaravelStats\RejectionStrategies\RejectVendorClasses::class
     * - \Wnx\LaravelStats\RejectionStrategies\RejectInternalClasses::class
     * If none of the default strategies fit for your usecase, you can
     * write your own class which implements the RejectionStrategy Contract.
    'rejection_strategy' => \Wnx\LaravelStats\RejectionStrategies\RejectVendorClasses::class,

     * Namespaces which should be ignored.
     * Laravel Stats uses the `Str::startsWith()`class to
     * check if a Namespace should be ignored.
     * You can use `Illuminate` to ignore the entire `Illuminate`-namespace
     * or `Illuminate\Support` to ignore a subset of the namespace.
    'ignored_namespaces' => [



After installing you can generate the statistics by running the following Artisan Command.

php artisan stats

The statistics are also available as JSON.

php artisan stats --json

If you want a more detailed report and see which classes have been grouped into which component, you can use the --verbose-option.

php artisan stats --verbose

The verbose option is also available for the JSON format.

php artisan stats --json --verbose

How does this package detect certain Laravel Components?

The package scans the files defined in the paths-array in the configuration file. It then applies Classifiers to those classes to determine which Laravel Component the class represents.

Component Classification
Controller Must be registered with a Route
Model Must extend Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model
Command Must extend Illuminate\Console\Command
Rule Must extend Illuminate\Contracts\Validation\Rule
Policy The Policy must be registered in your AuthServiceProvider
Middleware The Middleware must be registered in your Http-Kernel
Event Must use Illuminate\Foundation\Events\Dispatchable-Trait
Event Listener Must be registered for an Event in EventServiceProvider
Mail Must extend Illuminate\Mail\Mailable
Notification Must extend Illuminate\Notifications\Notification
Nova Action Must extend Laravel\Nova\Actions\Action
Nova Dashboard Must extend Laravel\Nova\Dashboard
Nova Filter Must extend Laravel\Nova\Filters\Filter
Nova Lens Must extend Laravel\Nova\Lenses\Lens
Nova Resource Must extend Laravel\Nova\Resource
Job Must use Illuminate\Foundation\Bus\Dispatchable-Trait
Migration Must extend Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration
Request Must extend Illuminate\Foundation\Http\FormRequest
Resource Must extend Illuminate\Http\Resources\Json\JsonResource or Illuminate\Http\Resources\Json\ResourceCollection
Seeder Must extend Illuminate\Database\Seeder
ServiceProvider Must extend Illuminate\Support\ServiceProvider
Blade Components Must extend Illuminate\View\Component
Custom Casts Must implement Illuminate\Contracts\Database\Eloquent\CastsAttributes or Illuminate\Contracts\Database\Eloquent\CastsInboundAttributes
Dusk Tests Must extend Laravel\Dusk\TestCase
BrowserKit Test Must extend Laravel\BrowserKitTesting\TestCase
PHPUnit Test Must extend PHPUnit\Framework\TestCase

Create your own Classifiers

If your application has it's own components you would like to see in laravel-stats you can create your own "Classifiers". Create your own Classifiers by implementing the Classifier-contract and adding the class to the stats.custom_component_classifier config array.

For example:

// app/Classifiers/RepositoryClassifier.php

namespace App\Classifiers;

use Wnx\LaravelStats\ReflectionClass;
use Wnx\LaravelStats\Contracts\Classifier;

class RepositoryClassifier implements Classifier
    public function name(): string
        return 'Repositories';

    public function satisfies(ReflectionClass $class): bool
        return $class->isSubclassOf(\App\Repositories\BaseRepository::class);

    public function countsTowardsApplicationCode(): bool
        return true;

    public function countsTowardsTests(): bool
        return false;
// config/stats.php
    'custom_component_classifier' => [


You're free to use this package, but if it makes it to your production environment you are required to buy the world a tree.

It’s now common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis and keep our temperatures from rising above 1.5C is to plant trees. If you support this package and contribute to the Treeware forest you’ll be creating employment for local families and restoring wildlife habitats.

Running the tests

The package has tests written in phpunit. You can run them with the following command.


Running the command in a local test project

If you're working on the package locally and want to just run the command in a demo project you can use the composer path-repository format. Add the following snippet to the composer.json in your demo project.

    "repositories": [
            "type": "path",
            "url": "/path/to/laravel-stats/",
            "options": {
                "symlink": true

And "install" the package with composer require wnx/laravel-stats. The package should now be symlinked in your demo project.
