HTML renderer injection into daily and single channel drivers

'single' => [
    'driver' => 'single',
    'path' => storage_path('logs/laravel.html'),
    'tap' => [\LaravelExtendedErrors\Formatter\HtmlFormatter::class],
    'level' => 'debug',

'daily' => [
    'driver' => 'daily',
    'path' => storage_path('logs/laravel.html'),
    'level' => 'debug',
    'days' => 7,
    'tap' => [\LaravelExtendedErrors\Formatter\HtmlFormatter::class],


All changes will be applied to 'channels' array in config/logging.php.

Telegram channel

'telegram' => [
    'driver' => 'telegram',
    'token' => env('LOG_TELEGRAM_API_KEY'),
    'chat_id' => env('LOG_TELEGRAM_CHAT_ID'),
    'proxy' => [
        'type' => env('LOG_TELEGRAM_PROXY_TYPE', 'http'),
        'host' => env('LOG_TELEGRAM_PROXY_HOST'),
        'port' => env('LOG_TELEGRAM_PROXY_PORT'),
        'user' => env('LOG_TELEGRAM_PROXY_USER'),
        'password' => env('LOG_TELEGRAM_PROXY_PASSWORD'),
    'level' => 'debug',
    'bubble' => false',

Rendered logs and exceptions are sent as documents to provided chat_id

Proxy settings:

  • proxy.type can be: http, socks4, socks5, nginx
  • proxy.user and proxy.password can be empty if proxy has no authorisation
  • proxy.host for http, socks4 and socks5 types usually is an IP address like
  • proxy.host for nginx type should be a full url like http://bot.yourdomain.com ,https://bot.yourdomain.com or http://bot.yourdomain.com:8080; proxy.port is not used for this type;

Proxy uses Basic Auth method to send user and password. Other auth methods are not supported right now. Make an issue if you need some (make sure CURL suppots it).

Nginx vhost config to proxy requests to api.telegram.org

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name bot.yourdomain.com;
    location / {
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_pass https://api.telegram.org/;
        client_max_body_size 100M;

Email channel

'email' => [
    'driver' => 'email',
    'level' => 'debug',
    'subject' => 'Server log',
    'sender' => 'local@test.lh',
    'receiver' => ['your@email.com'],
    'bubble' => false',

Warning: there is no limit for exceptions and you may eventually get thousands of errors at once if you use this channels in high loaded project.


Actually there is no channel driver for Sentry but here is quick tutorial on how to add add exceptions reporting to Sentry via Handler.php:

Require sentry packages:

"require": {
    "sentry/sentry": "^1.8",
    "sentry/sentry-laravel": "^0.8.0",

In your app/Exception/Handler.php update report() method to look like:

public function report(Exception $exception) {
    if ($this->shouldReport($exception) && app()->bound('sentry')) {
        app('sentry')->captureException($exception, ['extra' => \LaravelExtendedErrors\Utils::getMoreInformationAboutRequest()]);


To .env file add url provided by Sentry when you create a new project there. It will look like this:


Note that there is 'extra' key used to send report to Sentry. This one stores all data from current request just like exception logs generated by HTML Renderer. This provides better understanding of what happened.

Whoops exception page replacement

To replace HTML exception pages rendered by built-in Laravel's Whoops handler with exception page rendered by this package you need to add 'replace_whoops' => true, to config/logging.php

Custom user info data collector

ExceptionHtmlRenderer prints minimal set of user info: primary key and class. To print more info you can provide your own user info collector using ExceptionHtmlRenderer::setUserInfoCollector(\Closure). Closure
receives no arguments and must return null (not authenticated) or array. Also it is on your side how you get user object. ExceptionHtmlRenderer by default uses request()->user();
