My first composer package: Add AI powered fixes to your Laravel error pages

After finishing my blog post Add AI powered fixes to your Laravel error pages recently, I figured I'd release this as a composer package. I wanted to do that primarily as a learning exercise: Despite having worked with PHP for well over 20 years now, and having used composer longer than I can remember, I've actually never created a composer package.

So here goes my first composer package: nanos/openai-exceptions - a really simple package to show AI powered fixes on your Laravel error pages. If you want to know how this works under the hood, see the blog post linked above, but if you just want to use it, simply require it in your Laravel project as a dev dependency:

composer require --dev nanos/openai-exceptions

Then publish the configuration file:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Nanos\OpenaiExceptions\OpenAiSolutionServiceProvider" --tag="config"

And supply your OpenAI API key in your .env file:


To test, make mistakes, and you should see an output like in the screenshot below:

Example of a nano/openai-exceptions error message


You can configure a fair bit of this package in the config/openai-exceptions.php file. It's all documented in there, but here is a summary:

Customising the prompt

If you wish to customise the prompt that is being sent to the OpenAI client to get your fix, you can publish the blade view, and change it as desired:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Nanos\OpenaiExceptions\OpenAiSolutionServiceProvider" --tag="views"

then customise resources/views/vendor/nanos/openai-exceptions/prompt.blade.php

Any thoughts?

Particularly since this is my first composer package, I'd love if you have some feedback! Anything I got wrong? Please let me know in the comments below.
