Simple and usefull tool to execute custom php scripts. It allows to block specified function to increase security.


PHP Sandbox


Clone that repository wherever you want (in my example /www/php_sandbox)

$ git clone
$ cd php_sandbox

and load all dependencies via composer:

$ composer install

The final step is to run docker using docker-compose commands (of course the first step is to install docker for your environment.

$ docker-compose build
$ docker-compose up -d

Now you have working docker, go to your favourite browser and hit that addres:




Just type some code and push Evaluate button or use keyboard shortcut on Mac Command+Enter or Ctrl+Enter on Windows. More shortcuts you can find here.

Changed shortcuts by me:

Windows Mac Action
Ctrl-Enter Commantd-Enter Execute code
Ctrl-S Command-S Execute code
Alt-Shift-Up Option-Shift-Up Move lines up
Alt-Shift-Down Option-Shift-Down Move lines down
Ctrl-D Command-D Copy line
Ctrl-Shift-L Command-Shift-L Show sidebar
Ctrl-Shift-S Command-Shift-S Save Snippet
Ctrl-Shift-P Command-Shift-P Add Library / Package
