We're happy to introduce our latest error reporting SDK, for Laravel, which tracks and reports errors that happen in your Laravel applications. Laravel is a popular and powerful MVC framework for PHP, designed for developers who need a simple and elegant toolkit to create full-featured PHP web applications.
In real-world production applications, it’s important to monitor errors so you understand your user’s experience and can fix issues before more are impacted. Rollbar helps by providing you with a live error feed from your application, including complete stack traces for instant visibility. To give you more context to debug problems, we also track the environment the error is coming from (prod or staging), the server that generated the error, and even the user’s session. Learn more about Rollbar’s product features.
Below, we'll show you how to add Rollbar error reporting to your Laravel apps and even give you a code example that you can try yourself.
We are excited to announce a significant upgrade to our PHP notifier SDK. This new version will make it much easier for customers to integrate their PHP apps with Rollbar. It uses the latest standards like Composer, proper namespaces, and is more reliable. Here are some of the highlights:

About 6 months ago I inherited a project (let’s call it Project Mayhem) that was grossly neglected by the original developer. I won’t go into too many details, but let’s just say that I’ve seen spaghetti with more order than this codebase had. No unit tests, no documentation, illogical architecture, and an expecting client… I felt like I was literally living in one of those nightmares where I’m late for the final exam in a class I passed a decade ago.
The icing on this terrible cake was that I also inherited the hosting and was graciously provided with absolutely no specs in order to replicate the previous production environment. I was flying blind, and if it weren’t for Rollbar's php error logging tools, this project would have crashed and burned long before I could make any meaningful changes to it. I was able to manage and prioritize exceptions as they happened, which gave me the information I needed to build out a proper hosting architecture and quickly fix existing issues in the codebase.
Suffice it to say, I am a big fan of Rollbar.
