Last week Laravel 5 was released. Unfortunately that handy command for tailing the logs that you know and love from Laravel 4 was not included.

The laravel-tail package brings it back. You can install it via composer:

composer require spatie/laravel-tail

After that you'll have to register the service provider:

// config/app.php

'providers' => [
    ...
    'Spatie\Tail\TailServiceProvider',
    ...
];

After that's done you can tail your local log with

php artisan tail

The remote log can be tailed with

php artisan tail production

Happy tailing!
