You can install the nova tool in to a Laravel app that uses Nova via composer:

composer require spatie/nova-tail-tool

Next up, you must register the tool with Nova. This is typically done in the tools method of the NovaServiceProvider.

// in app/Providers/NovaServiceProvider.php

// ...

public function tools()
   return [
        // ...
        new \Spatie\TailTool\TailTool(),


Click on the "Application log" menu item in your Nova app to see the log. Initially it will be empty. All new lines that are appended to the log will be shown.
