Laravel package to dump SQL queries, related EXPLAIN and location in code in different formats:

  • HTML
  • markdown
  • email
  • console
  • log


Via Composer

composer require --dev cerbero/sql-dumper

To customize some aspects of this package, the config/sql_dumper.php file can optionally be generated via:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=sql-dumper


The easiest way to dump a SQL query is calling the helper functions. There is a helper for each dumper:

  • ds() dump SQL queries with the dumper specified in config/sql_dumper.php as default dumper
  • dsConsole() dump SQL queries with the console dumper
  • dsEmail() dump SQL queries with the email dumper
  • dsHtml() dump SQL queries with the html dumper
  • dsLog() dump SQL queries with the log dumper
  • dsMarkdown() dump SQL queries with the markdown dumper

All SQL queries executed within the helper's closure are dumped:

$user = ds(function () {
    return User::with('posts')->find(1);

Depending on dumper and database driver, SQL queries dumps will look like:

console dump console_dump.png
email or HTML file or markdown file dump html_dump.png
log file dump log_dump.png

Along with the default dumper, in config/sql_dumper.php we may customize the SQL dumpers default behavior. For example, the HTML dump default path is /storage/sql_dump_TIMESTAMP.html but we can set a different one:

return [
    HtmlDumper::class => [
        'path' => storage_path('foo.html'),

Also templates and email recipient are customizable, please refer to the [configuration][link-config] for further details.

This package includes a middleware to easily dump SQL queries in routes or group of routes. The middleware can be registered in app/Http/Kernel.php:

protected $routeMiddleware = [
    'sql.dump' => \Cerbero\SqlDumper\Http\Middleware\SqlDump::class,

Then we can add it to routes to run the default dumper:

Route::middleware('sql.dump')->get('users', function () {
    return User::all();

If we want to use a different dumper, we can pass it to the middleware as a parameter:

Route::middleware('sql.dump:log')->get('users', function () {
    return User::all();

The valid parameters are:

  • console
  • email
  • html
  • log
  • markdown
