After installing this plugin and installing chrome plugin Clockwork, you can use your Chrome developer tools for debugging and profiling your OctoberCMS website and admin panel, including information on request, headers, GET and POST data, cookies, session data, database queries, routes, visualization of application runtime and more.

Not a Chrome user? Check out embeddable web app version of Clockwork, supporting many modern browsers along chrome.

To add your controller's runtime to timeline, add following to your base controller's constructor:


Clockwork also comes with a facade, which provides an easy way to add records to the Clockwork log and events to the timeline. You can use alias:

use Clockwork\Support\Laravel\Facade as Clockwork
// Or use alias Clockwork

Now you can use the following commands:

Clockwork::startEvent('event_name', 'Event description.'); // event called 'Event description.' appears in Clockwork timeline tab
Clockwork::info('Message text.'); // 'Message text.' appears in Clockwork log tab
Log::info('Message text.'); // 'Message text.' appears in Clockwork log tab as well as application log file

Clockwork::info(array('hello' => 'world')); // logs json representation of the array
Clockwork::info(new Object()); // logs string representation of the objects if the object implements __toString magic method, logs json representation of output of toArray method if the object implements it, if neither is the case, logs json representation of the object cast to array


Also you can use functions inside a Twig template

{{ info(var) }} // appears in Clockwork log tab
{{ startEvent('event_name', 'Event description.') }} // event called 'Event description.' appears in Clockwork timeline tab
{{ endEvent('event_name') }}
