Adds PHP Debugbar to your October application. This plugin provides easy access to tools like the response timeline, database queries, and exceptions.

Special thanks to Flynsarmy for providing the original plugin that inspired this one :)

Debugbar Plugin

Easily see what's going on under the hood of your October application.


If you installed the plugin via October's plugin marketplace, just set debug to true in config/app.php, and the debugbar should appear in your backend. If the plugin was installed without using the marketplace, you'll need to also run a composer update from /plugins/bedard/debugbar. See barryvdh/laravel-debugbar for more usage instructions and documentation.

    I was using Clockwork before, and found it a bit overly clunky. I like this one better. Thanks.

    Everything is ok, but debugbar doesn't work on subdomains. I guess its because of the following check in Plugin.php:

    if (!BackendAuth::check()) {

    Even if I logged in the Backend this expression is always FALSE because the Backend auth cookie is set only for primary domain.
