Implementing friendly exception

To make exception friendly require this package and implement FriendlyExceptionInterface:



use Yiisoft\FriendlyException\FriendlyExceptionInterface;

class RequestTimeoutException extends \RuntimeException implements FriendlyExceptionInterface
    public function getName(): string
        return 'Request timed out';
    public function getSolution(): ?string
        return <<<'SOLUTION'
            Likely it is a result of resource request is not responding in a timely fashion. Try increasing timeout.

When returning solution consider the following best practices:

  1. Make solution description as short as possible.
  2. Do not use HTML tags.
  3. A simple markdown is OK but its support is up to implementation.

    public function handle(\Throwable $t)
        if ($t instanceof FriendlyExceptionInterface) {
            // additional handling
        // regular handling
