Require this package, with Composer, in the root directory of your project.

$ composer require artisanry/environment


Laravel Env supports optional configuration.

To get started, you'll need to publish all vendor assets:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Artisanry\Environment\EnvironmentServiceProvider"

This will create a config/env.php file in your app that you can modify to set your configuration. Also, make sure you check for changes to the original config file in this package between releases.


To get started, you'll need to generate a new encryption key for the env.php config file.

$ php artisan env:key
// 5W183ikLhZqoJ1Ye

Copy this key and place it within the env.php config file.

Register sec_env method

Add the following code at the very top of bootstrap/app.php, above any other code:



$ phpunit
