Provides A Powerful Error Response System For Both Development And Production


Laravel Exceptions was created by, and is maintained by Graham Campbell, and provides a powerful error response system for both development and production for Laravel. It optionally utilises the Whoops package for the development error pages. Feel free to check out the change log, releases, security policy, license, code of conduct, and contribution guidelines.


Build Status StyleCI Status Software License Packagist Downloads Latest Version


This version requires PHP 7.4-8.3 and supports Laravel 8-11.

Exceptions L5.5 L5.6 L5.7 L5.8 L6 L7 L8 L9 L10 L11

To get the latest version, simply require the project using Composer:

$ composer require "graham-campbell/exceptions:^17.2"

Once installed, if you are not using automatic package discovery, then you need to register the GrahamCampbell\Exceptions\ExceptionsServiceProvider service provider in your config/app.php.

You then MUST change your App\Exceptions\Handler to extend GrahamCampbell\Exceptions\ExceptionHandler.

Whoops Support

If you want to have the debug error pages available, you're going to need to require Whoops:

$ composer require "filp/whoops:^2.15" --dev

Our debug displayer will automatically detect the presence of Whoops. Feel free to go and have a read of our source code to give you a better understanding of how this works.


Laravel Exceptions supports optional configuration.

To get started, you'll need to publish all vendor assets:

$ php artisan vendor:publish

This will create a config/exceptions.php file in your app that you can modify to set your configuration. Also, make sure you check for changes to the original config file in this package between releases.

There are a few config options:

Exception Transformers

This option ('transformers') defines each of the exception transformers setup for your application. This allows you to turn your exceptions into other exceptions such as exceptions for perfect results when passed to the displayers. Note that this list is processed in order and subsequent transformers can still modify the results of previous ones if required.

Exception Displayers

This option ('displayers') defines each of the exception displayers setup for your application. These displayers are sorted by priority. Note that when we are in debug mode, we will select the first valid displayer from the list, and when we are not in debug mode, we'll filter out all verbose displayers, then select the first valid displayer from the new list.

Displayer Filters

This option ('filters') defines each of the filters for the displayers. This allows you to apply filters to your displayers in order to work out which displayer to use for each exception. This includes things like content type negotiation.

Default Displayer

This option ('default') defines the default displayer for your application. This displayer will be used if your filters have filtered out all the displayers, otherwise leaving us unable to displayer the exception.

Exception Levels

This option ('levels') defines the log levels for the each exception. If an exception passes an instance of test for each key, then the log level used is the value associated with each key.


There is currently no usage documentation for Laravel Exceptions, but we are open to pull requests.
