Adds a logging tap functionality to Laravel versions from 5.0 to 5.3.


Install the package using Composer.

composer require lukam/logging-tap

Open up config/app.php and add the service provider to your existing providers array.

'providers' => [	


Create a new logging tap using the artisan make:tap command. This will create a new tap file inside the App\Logging folder.

php artisan make:tap ExampleTap

Open up config/app.php, scroll down to "Logging Configuration" and add a log_tap array entry. Add your logging tap classes to this array. Any classes in this array will customize the Monolog instance when created.

'log_tap' => [App\Taps\ExampleTap::class],

For more information on how to work with logging taps refer to Laravel's logging documentation.


Create a logging tap to push a processor to Monolog instance:


namespace App\Logging;
use Monolog\Processor\UidProcessor;

class PushProcessor
    public function __invoke($logger, $arguments)
        $logger->getMonolog()->pushProcessor(new UidProcessor);

Set Monolog instance formatter:


namespace App\Logging;

use Monolog\Formatter\LineFormatter;

class Formatter
    public function __invoke($logger, $arguments)
        $format = "[%datetime%] - [%level_name%]: %message% %context% %extra%\n";
        $formatter = new LineFormatter($format, null, true, true);

        foreach ($logger->getHandlers() as $handler) {
