To get the backtrace in PHP you can use the debug_backtrace function. By default, it can be hard to work with. The reported function name for a frame is skewed: it belongs to the previous frame. Also, options need to be passed using a bitmask.

This package provides a better way than debug_backtrace to work with a back trace. Here's an example:

// returns an array with `Spatie\Backtrace\Frame` instances
$frames = Spatie\Backtrace\Backtrace::create()->frames(); 

$firstFrame = $frames[0];

$firstFrame->file; // returns the file name
$firstFrame->lineNumber; // returns the line number
$firstFrame->class; // returns the class name

Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require spatie/backtrace

Usage

This is how you can create a backtrace instance:

$backtrace = Spatie\Backtrace\Backtrace::create();

Getting the frames

To get all the frames you can call frames.

$frames = $backtrace->frames(); // contains an array with `Spatie\Backtrace\Frame` instances

A Spatie\Backtrace\Frame has these properties:

  • file: the name of the file
  • lineNumber: the line number
  • arguments: the arguments used for this frame. Will be null if withArguments was not used.
  • class: the class name for this frame. Will be null if the frame concerns a function.
  • method: the method used in this frame
  • applicationFrame: contains true is this frame belongs to your application, and false if it belongs to a file in the vendor directory

Collecting arguments

For performance reasons, the frames of the back trace will not contain the arguments of the called functions. If you want to add those use the withArguments method.

$backtrace = Spatie\Backtrace\Backtrace::create()->withArguments();

Setting the application path

You can use the applicationPath to pass the base path of your app. This value will be used to determine whether a frame is an application frame, or a vendor frame. Here's an example using a Laravel specific function.

$backtrace = Spatie\Backtrace\Backtrace::create()->applicationPath(base_path());

Getting a certain part of a trace

If you only want to have the frames starting from a particular frame in the backtrace you can use the startingFromFrame method:

use Spatie\Backtrace\Backtrace;
use Spatie\Backtrace\Frame;

$frames = Backtrace::create()
    ->startingFromFrame(function (Frame $frame) {
        return $frame->class === MyClass::class;
    })
    ->frames();

With this code, all frames before the frame that concerns MyClass will have been filtered out.

Alternatively, you can use the offSet method, which will skip the given number of frames. In this example the first 2 frames will not end up in $frames.

$frames = Spatie\Backtrace\Backtrace::create()
    ->offset(2)
    ->frames();

Limiting the number of frames

To only get a specific number of frames use the limit function. In this example, we'll only get the first two frames.

$frames = Spatie\Backtrace\Backtrace::create()
    ->limit(2)
    ->frames();

Getting a backtrace for a throwable

Here's how you can get a backtrace for a throwable.

$frames = Spatie\Backtrace\Backtrace::createForThrowable($throwable)

Because we will use the backtrace that is already available the throwable, the frames will always contain the arguments used.
