Version Compatibility

Laravel

LERN
5.1.x 3.x
5.2.x 3.x
5.3.x 3.x
5.4.x 3.x
5.5.x 4.x
5.6.x 4.x
6.x 5.x

Migrating from
3.x
to
4.x

Make sure that the config file now includes the new

lern.notify.class
and
lern.record.class
settings. Check the config file to see how they are used.

Migrating from
2.x
to
3.x

Version 3.x introduces the ability to collect more information from the error such as the user_id, url, method, and input data. In order to use 3.x you will need to copy over the new config file, the migration file and then migrate it. ```php

This will only copy over the migration file. For the config file you can either include the --force flag (Which will overwrite it) or copy it manually from github

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Tylercd100\LERN\LERNServiceProvider" php artisan migrate ```

Installation

Version 4.x uses Package Discovery. If you are using 3.x you will need to follow these instructions.

Install via composer - In the terminal:

bash
composer require tylercd100/lern

Then you will need to run these commands in the terminal in order to copy the config and migration files

bash
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Tylercd100\LERN\LERNServiceProvider"

Before you run the migration you may want to take a look at

config/lern.php
and change the
table
property to a table name that you would like to use. After that run the migration
bash
php artisan migrate

Usage

To use LERN modify the report method in the

app/Exceptions/Handler.php
file ```php public function report(Exception $e) { if ($this->shouldReport($e)) {
    //Check to see if LERN is installed otherwise you will not get an exception.
    if (app()->bound("lern")) {
        app()->make("lern")->handle($e); //Record and Notify the Exception

    /*
    OR...
    app()->make("lern")->record($e); //Record the Exception to the database
    app()->make("lern")->notify($e); //Notify the Exception
    */
}

}

return parent::report($e);

} ```

Dont forget to add this to the top of the file

php
//If you updated your aliases array in "config/app.php"
use LERN;
//or if you didnt...
use Tylercd100\LERN\Facades\LERN;

Recording

You can call

LERN::record($exception);
to record an Exception to the database. To query any Exception that has been recorded you can use
ExceptionModel
which is an Eloquent Model
php
use Tylercd100\LERN\Models\ExceptionModel;
$mostRecentException = ExceptionModel::orderBy('created_at','DESC')->first();

To change what is recorded in to the database take a look at

config/lern.php
```php 'record'=>[ /** * The Model to use */ 'model' => \Tylercd100\LERN\Models\ExceptionModel::class,
/**
 * Database connection to use. Null is the default connection.
 */
'connection'=>null,

/**

  • Database table to use
  • / 'table'=>'vendor_tylercd100_lern_exceptions',

/**

  • Information to store
  • / 'collect'=>[ 'method'=>false, //When true it will collect GET, POST, DELETE, PUT, etc... 'data'=>false, //When true it will collect Input data 'status_code'=>true, 'user_id'=>false, 'url'=>false, 'ip'=>false, ],

], ``

Note: If you change
lern.recorder.model
then
lern.recorder.table
and
lern.recorder.connection
will be ignored unless you extend
\Tylercd100\LERN\Models\ExceptionModel::class`

Notifications

LERN uses the Monolog library to send notifications. If you need more than the supported notification channels, then you can add your own custom Monolog handlers. To start using any of the supported handlers just edit the provided config file

config/lern.php
.

Changing the log level programmatically

Some notification services support different log levels. If changing the config value

lern.notify.log_level
is not enough then try it this way:
php
// Change the log level. 
// Default is: critical
// Options are: debug, info, notice, warning, error, critical, alert, emergency
LERN::setLogLevel("emergency");

Changing the subject line

Some notification services support a subject line, this is how you change it.

php
//Change the subject
LERN::setSubject("An Exception was thrown!");

Changing the body of the notification

LERN publishes a default blade template file that you can find at

resources/views/exceptions/default.blade.php
. The blade template file is compiled with these values:
$exception
$url
$method
$data
$user
. To specify a different blade template file, just edit the config file
php
'notify'=>[
    'view'=>'exceptions.default',
],
(deprecated) Using the
LERN::setMessage()
function

Make sure that you set the view config value to null or the

LERN::setMessage()
will not work
php
'notify'=>[
    'view'=>null,
],

Custom Monolog Handlers

To use a custom Monolog Handler call the

pushHandler
method
php
use Monolog\Handler\HipChatHandler;
$handler = new HipChatHandler($token,$room);
LERN::pushHandler($handler);
LERN::notify($exception);
