The spatie/laravel-activity package provides easy to use functions to log the activities of the users of your app. It can also automatically log model events. All activity will be stored in the activity_log table.

Here's a litte demo of how you can use it:

activity()->log('Look mum, I logged something');

You can retrieve all activity using the Spatie\Activitylog\Models\Activity model.


Here's a more advanced example:

   ->withProperties(['customProperty' => 'customValue'])
   ->log('Look mum, I logged something');
$lastLoggedActivity = Activity::all()->last();

$lastLoggedActivity->subject; //returns an instance of an eloquent model
$lastLoggedActivity->causer; //returns an instance of your user model
$lastLoggedActivity->getExtraProperty('customProperty'); //returns 'customValue'
$lastLoggedActivity->description; //returns 'Look mum, I logged something'

Here's an example on event logging.

$newsItem->name = 'updated name';

//updating the newsItem will cause an activity being logged
$activity = Activity::all()->last();

$activity->description; //returns 'updated'
$activity->subject; //returns the instance of NewsItem that was created

Calling $activity->changes will return this array:

   'attributes' => [
        'name' => 'original name',
        'text' => 'Lorum',
    'old' => [
        'name' => 'updated name',
        'text' => 'Lorum',
