Laravel-Easy-Log helps you to log into differnet files per level or into a MySQL-datatbase, for which you also get a Log-view.


composer require cafe-serendipity/laravel-easy-log


  • add the provider to config/app.php

Publish files

  • having the configuration-file, views & controller available in your application, you have to publish them
php artisan vendor:publish --tag=lel --force

Decide how to log


  • if you wanna log on application-level, means also Laravel is logging through Laravel-Easy-Log, add the following to bootstrap/app.php just before return $app;. Because Laravel-Easy-Log is logging ow for you, you have to switch on at least file or db in config/laravel-easy-log.php
$app->configureMonologUsing(function ($logger) {
  • now use it as usual:
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Log;


Log::debug("CONTEXT log in DEBUG", array('col1' => 'Hi, I am a context log.'));    
Log::info("CONTEXT log in INFO", array(
        'col1' => 'Hi, I am a context log.',
        'col2' => 'Hi, I am a context log.'


  • if you don't wanna have Laravel logging through Laravel-Easy-Log, but you wanna do it on your own, you have to create an instance of Laravel-Easy-Log:
$logger = \Piccard\LEL\LEL::configureMonolog("channel-name"); 
$logger->info("Whatever you want to log");
  • now use the instance:
$logger->debug("CONTEXT log in DEBUG", array('col1' => 'Hi, I am a context log.'));    
$logger->info("CONTEXT log in INFO", array(
        'col1' => 'Hi, I am a context log.',
        'col2' => 'Hi, I am a context log.'

Configure Laravel-Easy-Log

Open up config/laravel-easy-log and enable the handlers you want to use. Basically you can use the same options like in Monolog.


  • use_default_connection You can use your default DB-connection or define a custom one.
  • app is just another column, if you use different Laravel-applications and the same logging-server, so you can filter them better out.
  • table the table which will be created for logging
  • columns define here some extra columns, which you can use when you log, which is similar to Monolog's context logging
Log::info("CONTEXT log in DEBUG", array('col1' => 'Hi, I am a context log.'));

To get to the view of your DB-Logs goto the route /lel


  • log_levels define here which files you want foreach log-level
