Laravel Tinker is a powerful REPL for the Laravel framework.


To get started with Laravel Tinker, simply run:

composer require laravel/tinker

Basic Usage

From your console, execute the php artisan tinker command.

Dispatching Jobs

The dispatch helper function and dispatch method on the Dispatchable class depends on garbage collection to place the job on the queue. Therefore, when using tinker, you should use Bus::dispatch or Queue::push to dispatch jobs.
