LaraLens is a Laravel artisan command to show you the current configuration of your application. It is useful to show in your terminal the status of:

  • some useful configuration variable;
  • the database connection;
  • the tables in the database;
  • the connection via HTTP request.

LaraLens - diagnostic package for Laravel


When I have a new Laravel Application deployed on the target server, usually I perform a list of commands in order to check the configuration, the connection to database, inspect some tables, the response of the web server. I tried to show more information in just one command. This is useful also when the installation of your Laravel application is on premises, and someone else takes care about the configuration. So, in this scenario usually, as developer, your first question is: "how is configured the application?".

composer require hi-folks/lara-lens
