Use the power of Tinker within your Nova application.

You can install the package in to a Laravel app that uses Nova via composer:

composer require beyondcode/nova-tinker-tool

Next up, you must register the tool with Nova. This is typically done in the tools method of the NovaServiceProvider.

// in app/Providers/NovaServiceProvider.php

// ...
public function tools()
    return [
        // ...
        new \Beyondcode\TinkerTool\Tinker(),


Click on the new "Tinker" menu item in your Nova application. You can enter any PHP code and press CMD+Enter / CTRL+Enter to evaluate the expression. The return value will be displayed below.

The previous code and output will be stored in the localstorage in case you want to execute the same code snippets multiple times.


By default this Pysh will attempt to write to ~/.pysh which for most will result in an error when trying to use tinker. To avoid this issue adding an environment variable to change where Pysh will write to will resolve this:


Security: Remote Code Execution

This should only be used for development and testing. Running tinker allows arbitrary code to be executed.

Any executed php code will have the same access as the running php instance. This means that the running application may be altered, and if run with root privileges, one can get complete control of the machine.
