Viewing model counts in the Laravel Debugbar

Jonathan Reinink has added a very usefull metric to Laravel debugbar

Last week at Laracon US I gave a talk titled Eloquent Performance Patterns. In that talk I used a custom Laravel Debugbar metric I created to track how many Eloquent models were being hydrated throughout a request. I've had a lot of people asking about this, so today I submitted a pull request to the Laravel Debugbar to add this as an official metric.
