Laravel's tinker command allows to run any code you want as if you are inside your Laravel app.

But what if you want to debug some part of your code, you must start up tinker, type the code, press enter, and quit tinker and everytime you make change in your code you have to run tinker all over again

This package helps you to run any line of code in your Laravel app environment in your favorite browser tab. No tinker launching, no typing or searching previously typed code.

Installation

You can install the package via composer

Install only in your dev-environment

composer require erjanmx/laravel-live-tinker --dev

If you're using Laravel prior to version 5.5 you have to configure by adding Service Provider in your /config/app.php

'providers' => [
    // other providers
    
    Erjanmx\LiveTinker\LiveTinkerServiceProvider::class,
 ],

Publish assets via following command

php artisan vendor:publish --provider=Erjanmx\\LiveTinker\\LiveTinkerServiceProvider --tag=public

Usage

If you do not have configured web-server we'll use Laravel's built-in one

php artisan serve 

Now just open http://your-domain/live-tinker (replace your-domain with your domain or ip:port given by php artisan serve command)

You should see editor window with php code highlighting (powered by Ace Editor) and the result window. Now you can type/copy any code or even whole classes and test them in your browser and everything will work as if it has been typed in tinker console command.
