Whoops is coming back in Laravel 5.5

Whoops is coming back in Laravel 5.5

Whoops is a PHP error handler framework that came pre-installed in Laravel 4 and was later removed with the Laravel 5.0 release. It was announced this week that Whoops will be making a come back in Laravel 5.5.

Some of the features of Whoops includes:

  • Flexible, stack-based error handling
  • Stand-alone library with (currently) no required dependencies
  • Simple API for dealing with exceptions, trace frames & their data
  • Includes a pretty rad error page for your webapp projects
  • Includes the ability to open referenced files directly in your editor and IDE
  • Includes handlers for different response formats (JSON, XML, SOAP)
  • Easy to extend and integrate with existing libraries
  • Clean, well-structured & tested code-base

I think what most people like is the appearance of the error pages and seeing the code causing the issue right on the page. I know many are excited this is coming back and I am one of those.
