The best custom cards for Laravel Pulse in 2024

Laravel Pulse in a nutshell

If you never heard about it, Laravel Pulse is a free and open source package for the Laravel framework that helps developers monitor various aspects of their web applications in real-time. You can learn more about it here: Laravel Pulse: monitor your apps for free

Laravel Pulse also allows developers to create what’s called a “custom card,” which will help populate the dashboard with useful data for your application. Let’s talk about the best ones I’ve found in alphabetical order.

The best custom cards for Laravel Pulse

laravel-pulse-schedule, which lists all your scheduled tasks

hosmelq/laravel-pulse-schedule, made by Hosmel Quintana, is a card that will list all your scheduled tasks as well as the next time they will run.

ohdearapp/ohdear-pulse was made by the great folks at Spatie. This card plugs itself into their awesome service, Oh Dear (that I actually use for this blog), which provides valuable insights about uptime, cron tasks (aka scheduled tasks), and broken links. We all know how crucial these metrics are on a business-critical application.

pulse-database, for real-time insights about your databases

maantje/pulse-database, made by Jamie Schouten, is a card that will give you real-time insights about your databases such as the active threads, the current amount of connections, and more!

pulse-outdated, to keep an eye on outdated Composer dependencies

aaronfrancis/pulse-outdated, made by Aaron D. Francis, is a card that will help you keep an eye on outdated Composer dependencies. It’s a great way to prevent potential security issues by making sure you’re always using the latest versions of your dependencies.

pulse-php-fpm, to monitor your PHP-FPM processes

maantje/pulse-php-fpm, made by Jamie Schouten, is a card that will monitor your PHP-FPM processes. It’s a great way to make sure your PHP-FPM configuration is optimal to serve all your traffic.

vulnerable, to track vulnerable Composer dependencies

hungthai1401/vulnerable, made by Thai Nguyen Hung, is a card that will track vulnerable Composer dependencies and entice you to update them.

geowrgetudor/404-monitor, made by George Tudor, is a card that will track dead links on your website. It’s a great way to make sure your users don’t repeatedly end up on non-existing page ever again.
