Laravel dump server comes with the version of Laravel 5.7. The previous versions do not include any dump server. Dump server will be a development dependency in laravel/laravel composer file.
With release of version 5.7, you’ll get this command which includes a concept out-of-thebox which allows user to dump data to the console or an HTML file instead of to the browser. The command execution is mentioned below −
php artisan dump-server # Or send the output to an HTML file php artisan dump-server --format=html > dump.html
The command runs a server in the background which helps in collection of data sent from the application, that sends the output through the console. When the command is not running in the foreground, the dump() function is expected to work by default.
