At the top there's a new Docs item which will go straight to the Laravel documentation. That red dot means we found a very specific page (for instance the Eloquent page for query errors) Settings can now be saved right in Ignition itself, you don't have to edit a config file.

Of course, Ignition still can fix common problems for you, such as generating a missing app key.

We always keep displaying the exception message. Take a look at this beautiful animation to make it sticky.

Ignition can now highlight Blade views correctly. We've gone the extra mile and created a Blade language file for highlight.js. You'll find it in this repo: github.com/spatie/highlightj鈥

Ignition can show you the location of your dump message. Click on that path to go straight to that file.

馃檶 You can still get help from a colleague by sharing your Exception via flareapp.io, the best exception tracker for Laravel application. 馃拝 In the next few weeks, we'll also update Flare with the new Ignition design and also launch a beautiful new marketing page.

馃憤 The new version of Ignition will ship with Laravel 9, but you can also install it in Laravel 8. In composer.json just replace facade/ignition with spatie/laravel-igntion ^1.0 That's an easy upgrade of your error page.

You can now install Ignition into non-Laravel applications as well. It's one liner: Ignition::make()->register(); Want to know more? Head over to the repo on GitHub: github.com/spatie/ignition
