Automatically restart Horizon when local PHP files change
How many hours have lost debugging local jobs only to find out that you forgot to restart Horizon?
This package contains an Artisan command
horizon:watch that will start Horizon and automatically restart it when any PHP file is created, updated or deleted.
This command is meant to be used in local environment.
We highly appreciate you sending us a postcard from your hometown, mentioning which of our package(s) you are using. You'll find our address on our contact page. We publish all received postcards on our virtual postcard wall.
You can install the package via composer:
composer require spatie/laravel-horizon-watcher --dev
chokidar installed. You can install it via npm
npm install chokidar --save-dev
yarn add chokidar --dev
Optionally, you can publish the config file with this command:
php artisan vendor:publish --tag="horizon-watcher-config"
This is the contents of the published config file:
return [ /* * Horizon will be restarted when any PHP file inside these directories * get created, updated or deleted. You can also specify other kinds * of files here. */ 'paths' => [ app_path(), config_path(), database_path(), resource_path('views'), base_path('.env'), base_path('composer.lock'), ], /* * This command will be executed to start Horizon. */ 'command' => 'php artisan horizon', ];
php artisan horizon:watch to start Horizon. When a PHP file in your project gets created, updated or deleted, Horizon will automatically restart.
