Looking to improve the user experience of MoonGuard Filament Plugin, we realized that the only way to know when a site is under maintenance is by reviewing its configuration, which motivated us to add an indicator in the "sites stats" of the dashboard, we also contemplated that there was no mechanism that would allow us to eliminate very old exceptions in the database, those that occurred a long time ago and that we could consider as irrelevant information.

In this article we will explore how we add the functionality.

Adding maintenance indicator

Normally we use these site stats to visualize the uptime, ssl-certificate and number of exceptions that our sites have, so we had the idea to improve this by adding an indicator of when the sites are under maintenance.


To achieve this, we update our Filament widget site-stats-widget.blade.php by adding a conditional that is executed when there is a date of the down_for_maintenance_at property of the site model.


We also updated the widget components uptime-list-item.blade.php, performance-list-item.blade.php and certificate-list- item.blade.php so that they are not activated when in maintenance in order not to confuse us and improve the user experience.

The final result was the following.


These small details are what polish and improve the user experience using MoonGuard.

If you want to see more detailed code you can see the PR on Github.

Add command to clean exceptions

We have a productive MoonGuard in which we have been testing its functionalities for the last 2-3 months with real projects and we realized that we needed a way to clean (automatically) very old exceptions that were no longer relevant, so we decided to create a new command and schedule it in the server scheduler to run periodically.

We created the command DeleteOldExceptionCommand , where all those exceptions that are older than the time specified in the MoonGuard configuration are deleted periodically:

  class Kernel extends ConsoleKernel
protected function schedule(Schedule $schedule)


This command works similar to the other MoonGuard commands (The CheckUptimeCommand and CheckSslCertificateCommand) you can schedule the execution of this command or use the MoonGuardCommandsScheduler if you want to schedule these three commands:

protected function schedule(Schedule $schedule): void
'* * * * *', // <-- Uptime Check Cron
'* * * * *', //<-- SSL Certificate Check Cron
'* * * * *' //<-- [Optional] Delete Exceptions Cron

For more information on programming these commands you can visit the MoonGuard documentation.

You can also read in detail the related changes in this PR on GitHub.

Since the last release of the MoonGuard Filament Plugin, we have been updating our tool to make it more useful for Laravel developers.

On this occasion, we realized within MoonGuard's internal Slack channel that we were not receiving notifications for exceptions from different team projects, and we were also receiving duplicate notifications for uptime and SSL-certificate.

In this post, we want to tell you how we solved these issues and what we learned.

In previous versions of the MoonGuard Filament Plugin, the team used Slack notifications to monitor different internal applications and test features of the MoonGuard package. However, these notifications were configured to be sent repeatedly to the same channel for each registered user, which presented a problem.

Recently, I had to create a simple settings page to manage general settings for a website with Filament. Filament is a Laravel-based admin panel that provides an intuitive interface for managing your application's data.

In this blog post, I'll walk you through the steps I took to create the settings page, including how to use migrations to store the data, how to update the settings from the Filament admin panel, and how to dynamically build the edit form depending on the setting type.
