Package that adds verbosity to Laravel/Lumen built-in console commands

Laravel Verbose in action

Overview

Even though Laravel console commands have verbosity flags -v/-vv/-vvv they are actually ignored. Therefore, using some of the console commands leaves developer completely blind – you have no idea what's happening behind the scenes.

Example running queue:work without this package:

$ php artisan queue:work --once
$

What? Did it work or not? Was there a job in the queue or not? Why did it take several seconds to complete - does it mean it actually worked? What queue or connection did it use because I don't remember if I set them correctly?

Reminds of Microsoft products uh? :)

Example running queue:work after installing this package:

$ php artisan queue:work -vv
Using connection: sqs
Using queue: live-visits
The queue seems to be empty.
Sleeping for 3 seconds.

Let's now break AWS credentials so that SQS is unreachable:

$ php artisan queue:work -vv
Using connection: sqs
Using queue: live-visits
Error executing "ReceiveMessage" on "https://sqs.ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/XXX/live-visits"; AWS HTTP error...
Couldn't fetch a job from the queue. See the log file for more information.

Voilà! Now I know exactly what happened in both cases, and now -vv flag did exactly what it was supposed to do.

Installation

$ composer require dusterio/laravel-verbose

Then add a service provider to your config/app.php:

  /* ... */
  Dusterio\LaravelVerbose\Integrations\LaravelServiceProvider::class,
  /* ... */
