How to get filp/whoops to work in Laravel 5.2 or 5.3 - Add this code to your `App\Exceptions\Handler.php` file.
* Create a Symfony response for the given exception.

protected function convertExceptionToResponse(Exception $e)
if (config('app.debug')) {
$whoops = new \Whoops\Run;
$whoops->pushHandler(new \Whoops\Handler\PrettyPageHandler);

Is this work on 5.4? When I use this into test environment it works and the laravel version is 5.4. And I use this to my work environment it doesn't work and the laravel version is 5.4.
And if not how I can use in 5.4?
I really like this so I really want to use in 5.4 :(

Thanks Alex! I'm using Laravel 5.4.30 (PHP 5.6.30 and Apache ) and it works for me. FYI: After the composer require filp/whoops completed, the messages in my command window mentioned I might want to also require whoops/soap so I also did that....doubt it matters to work on 5.4 but just in case.
