This package will give you a tinker server, that collects all your tinker call outputs and allows you to interact with the variables on the fly.

About this package

This package was built as part of my PHP Package Development video course. Register for the course to learn how this package was built.


You can install the package via composer:

composer require beyondcode/laravel-tinker-server

The package will register itself automatically.

Optionally you can publish the package configuration using:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider=BeyondCode\\LaravelTinkerServer\\LaravelTinkerServerServiceProvider

This will publish a file called laravel-tinker-server.php in your config folder.

In the config file, you can specify the dump server host that you want to listen on, in case you want to change the default value.


Start the tinker server by calling the artisan command:

php artisan tinker-server

And then you can put tinker calls in your methods to dump variable content as well as instantly making them available in an interactive REPL shell.

$user = App\User::find(1);


In addition to the tinker method, there is also a td method, that behaves similar to dd. It tinkers the variable and dies the current request.
