  • Announcing x-ray
    5 projects | dev.to | 17 Sep 2021
    I'm proud to announce the initial release of the spatie/x-ray package for Ray. The x-ray package provides a command-line utility that finds and displays all calls to ray(), rd(), and other functions from the spatie/ray family of packages. Currently, it only supports PHP projects.

What are some alternatives?
