Laravel Decomposer decomposes and lists all the installed packages and their dependencies along with the Laravel & the Server environment details your app is running in. Decomposer also generates a markdown report from those details that can be used for troubleshooting purposes, also it allows you to generate the same report as an array anywhere in your code. All these just on the hit of a single route as shown below in the gif.
Kind Attention : This is the initial version which will be improved actively. You can have a look at the Roadmap. If you have any suggestions for code improvements, new optional or core features or enhancements, create an issue so you,us or any open source believer can start working on it.
- This can be used by your non-tech client/user of your laravel app or non-experienced dev who still dosen’t uses CLI to generate the system report & send over to you so you can know the entire details of his environment.
- To see the list of all installed packages & their dependencies in the laravel app directly from the browser
- To get the Laravel & Server environment details on the same page with the packages list
- To check whether all the pre configurations & extensions asked by Laravel are applied and loaded or not
- Suppose suddenly or after some changes your app broke, you can install Laravel Decomposer, generate & copy the report and paste it in the issue box of the respective repo you are reporting the issue to.
- For package/laravel app developers this can be very useful when collecting the information from the users reporting the issues. As the report gives them complete info about the environment the issue is being raised in.
- It can also help you in other ways like suppose you have a package installed that is using illuminate/support v5.1, and an another package using illuminate/support v5.3, so getting these facts quickly by just hitting to a route can make you aware of possible unstability & conflicts so you can report that to the respective package developer.
- It cuts down the troubleshooting time. For eg: Sometimes after trying all possible solutions at the end the user says ‘I forgot to say I am on PHP 4’. Here Decomposer acts as the precaution & removes the dependency of querying the user for every single thing.
- ~Allow Decomposer report to be accessed via code~ Released in v1.1
- Add a config file to allow user to control what he/she wants to see in the view
- Check for updates of the installed packages & show if any available for the respective packages or their dependencies
- Allow users and other packages to add their own stats in the Decomposer report
- Compare same dependency versions for different packages & warn user about the possible conflict. (Can be achieved even now as the search results highlighting is enabled, but sure it can be done in more better way)
- Make UI more informative & UX more better
- Let us know if you want anything to be added in the decomposer. After all the user makes the packages worth :)
- We have created the issues & labels with the appropriate titles , where you can contribute your ideas & suggestions or let us know if you are working on a PR for that. Always more than happy to hear & learn new things from the community.
You can install this package via composer:
composer require lubusin/laravel-decomposer
Next, add the service provider:
// In config/app.php ( Thank you for considering this package! Have a great day :) ) 'providers' => [ /* * Package service providers */ Lubusin\Decomposer\DecomposerServiceProvider::class, ];
Add a route in your web routes file:
Go to http://yourapp/decompose or the route you configured above in the routes file.
- You might want to access the Decomposer Report in your code so that it could be passed to any third party services like Bugsnag, etc. or maybe you want to log it yourself somewhere if required.
getReportArray()helper method has been introduced to solve the same requirement.
- First use the Decomposer class at the top as follows:
- Then use the
getReportArray()method as required.
$DecomposerStats = Decomposer::getReportArray();
- It returns a multi-dimensional associative array with 3 keys: Server Environment, Laravel Environment & Installed Packages having the respective details as an associative array.
