This package adds a handful of useful commands to edit your .env file in Laravel directly from the command line with a simple, human readable API. Never touch the mouse again!


Via composer:

$ composer require sven/flex-env --dev

Alternatively, add the package to your dev dependencies in composer.json and run composer update afterwards:

    "require-dev": {
        "sven/flex-env": "^2.0"

Note: If you're using Laravel 5.5, you're done! The service provider is automatically registered in the container, thanks to auto-discovery.

Next, add the FlexEnvServiceProvider to your providers array in config/app.php:

// config/app.php
'providers' => [


The commands in this package should now be registered. Simply run php artisan, and you will see them in the list.

# Create or edit an entry in your .env file:
$ php artisan env:set {key} {value} [--line-break|-L]
# Add the --line-break (or -L) option to insert a line break before the entry.
# Delete an entry from your .env file:
$ php artisan env:delete {key}
# Show the value of the given key from your .env file:
$ php artisan env:get {key}
# Show the entire .env file:
$ php artisan env:list

All changes you made should now be reflected in your .env file.


Inspiration for this package came from LeShadow's ArtisanExtended.
