Clockwork v5.0 is released


November 30th, 2020


Clockwork is a development tool for PHP available right in your browser that gives you an insight into your application runtime – including request data, performance metrics, log entries, database queries, cache queries, redis commands, dispatched events, queued jobs, rendered views and more – for HTTP requests, commands, queue jobs and tests.

They’ve recently released v5 with lots of UI refinements, client-side metrics, models and notifications tabs, sharing, toolbar and more. From their release announcement here are some of the main highlights:

UI refinements

Almost every part of the Clockwork UI was touched up and improved. From simplified requests list, new tab bar, counters and tables to reworked dark theme colors.

Updated Timeline

The Timeline has been rebuilt from the ground. The new timeline makes it easier than ever before to figure out what’s happening in your application. The condense option makes the timeline more compact by condensing multiple short events into a single row. The bar colors now represent the event type and show the self and children time in different shades. Clicking on an event now reveals a popover with more details. And of course you can still filter by event type, search and show details view.

Much more…

These are just a few of the highlights and you should head over to the release announcement for all the details and to get started using Clockwork take a look at their landing page which includes all the instructions.
