Using Ray With Laravel

If you use Laravel, this is the way.

#Installing the package in single Laravel project

composer require spatie/laravel-ray

By installing Ray like this it will also be installed in your production environment. This way your application will not break if you forget to remove a ray call. The package will not attempt to transmit information to Ray when the app environment is set to production.

You could opt to install laravel-ray as a dev dependency. If you go this route, make sure to remove every ray call in the code before deploying.

composer require spatie/laravel-ray --dev

#Use ray(), dd() and dump() in any file.

Head over to the global installation instructions to learn how to enable ray(), dd() and dump() in any file.

#Creating a config file

Optionally, you can run an artisan command to publish the config file in to the project root.

php artisan ray:publish-config

You can also add --docker or --homestead option to set up a base configuration for those dev environments.

php artisan ray:publish-config --docker
# or
php artisan ray:publish-config --homestead

#Using Ray in an Orchestra powered test suite

// add this to your base test case
