Tracy Debugger support for Laravel

This service provider adds the powerful Tracy debug tool to the Laravel 5 framework.

Nette Tracy screenshot

Why is Tracy better than the laravel (Symfony) build-in debugger?

  • Exception stack trace contains values of all method arguments.
  • Request & Response & Server environment information is displayed on the error page.
  • The whole error page with full stack trace can be easily stored to some directory as HTML file (useful on production mode).
  • Webmaster can be notified by email about errors that occured on the site.

See full Tracy docs and sample error page.

Tracy is a part of the Nette Framework.

If you are sending JSON with TracyDebugBar rendered, you have probably created JSON Response wrong way.

	$user = \App\Models\User::first();
	return $user; //Correct ->toJson() will be invoked and JSON Response will be created
	$json = $user->toJson();
	return $json; //Wrong - it creates Text/Plain Response
	return \Response::json($json); //This is OK, but note that your JSON will be ESCAPED

Use Tracy version 2.3.7 some newer versions are incompatible..
