In Laravel 5 – dd gets an upgrade

Symfony recently announced a new VarDumper Component which makes var_dumps easier for developers:

The VarDumper component provides mechanisms for walking through any arbitrary PHP variable. Built on top, it provides a better dump() function that you can use instead of var_dump.

Laravel 5 has replaced the dd(), dump and die, function so it will include this under the hood.

The colors are blinding but I’m happy that my most used Laravel feature is getting an update.
