Laravel – debugbar package

Debug Bar

This is a package to integrate PHP Debug Bar with Laravel 5.

It includes a ServiceProvider to register the debugbar and attach it to the output. You can publish assets and configure it through Laravel.

It bootstraps some Collectors to work with Laravel and implements a couple custom DataCollectors, specific for Laravel.

It is configured to display Redirects and (jQuery) Ajax Requests. (Shown in a dropdown) Read the documentation for more configuration options.


Require this package with composer. It is recommended to only require the package for development.

composer require barryvdh/laravel-debugbar --dev

Laravel 5.5 uses Package Auto-Discovery, so doesn’t require you to manually add the ServiceProvider.

The Debugbar will be enabled when APP_DEBUG is true.

If you use a catch-all/fallback route, make sure you load the Debugbar ServiceProvider before your own App ServiceProviders.

Laravel 5.5+:

If you don’t use auto-discovery, add the ServiceProvider to the providers array in config/app.php


If you want to use the facade to log messages, add this to your facades in app.php:

'Debugbar' => Barryvdh\Debugbar\Facade::class,

he profiler is enabled by default, if you have APP_DEBUG=true. You can override that in the config (debugbar.enabled) or by setting DEBUGBAR_ENABLED in your .env. See more options in config/debugbar.php You can also set in your config if you want to include/exclude the vendor files also (FontAwesome, Highlight.js and jQuery). If you already use them in your site, set it to false. You can also only display the js or css vendors, by setting it to ‘js’ or ‘css’. (Highlight.js requires both css + js, so set to true for syntax highlighting)

Copy the package config to your local config with the publish command:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Barryvdh\Debugbar\ServiceProvider"


You can now add messages using the Facade (when added), using the PSR-3 levels (debug, info, notice, warning, error, critical, alert, emergency):

Debugbar::warning('Watch out…');
Debugbar::addMessage('Another message', 'mylabel');

And start/stop timing:

Debugbar::startMeasure('render','Time for rendering');
Debugbar::addMeasure('now', LARAVEL_START, microtime(true));
Debugbar::measure('My long operation', function() {
    // Do something…
