The output of dump and dd commands has been enhanced for both local and Docker projects.

Furthermore, we have addressed an issue where the Heredoc syntax was incorrectly formatted if the closing delimiter was not followed by a semicolon.

Tinkerwell now also ships with a built-in Radicle driver and we also updated the built-in Laravel to the latest version, which is 11.4.0.

#

Laravel 11 is out now and this release of Tinkerwell brings it into your hands as well! Have fun tinkering around with the latest additions to the framework in version 11.0.3.

Additionally, several bug fixes have been implemented, improving output parsing and rendering as well as the handling of invokable actions.

2024-03-01

Tinkerwell 4.9.1
#

This release fixes a bug with the query formatting in Detail Dive.

2024-02-28

Tinkerwell 4.9.0
#

This weeks version brings a few quality of life updates to Tinkerwell.

Per request of many users, we removed the Command/Control+S shortcut for running code since it may happen that your muscle memory of saving code results in running code you haven't intended to (yet). If you miss this shortcut - feel free to remap the »Run Code« shortcut to your custom choice in the Preferences! In addition to that, using the arrow keys in custom keymappings is now possible.

Empty tabs now close immediately even if you have »Ask before closing tab« enabled.

We made the output more robust when it comes to application bootstrap errors and improved the rendering of the Detail Dive cards.

We also updated the built-in Laravel to the latest version, which is 10.46.0.

2024-02-13

Tinkerwell 4.8.0
#

The latest version of Tinkerwell ships with Detail Dive support for MailMessage - the return type you get when you send out a notification.

Logs are now select- and copyable and we fixed a bug that caused flickering when flipping the pages in the log viewer.

In addition, this update improves the output when using the default app panel for WordPress apps.

We also updated the built-in Laravel to the latest version, which is 10.43.0.

2024-01-25

Tinkerwell 4.7.0
#

The latest version of Tinkerwell ships with a CLI helper for all darwin-based platforms which allows you to open Tinkerwell with the current working directory right from your terminal. In the Advanced Settings, install the CLI helper. After that, type tinkerwell <your path> or just tinkerwell for the current directory and off you go!

This version also adds support for the log viewer in Shopware, Wordpress and Magento applications. If your app stores logs in a different directory than default, you can now specify the logs path in a custom driver. For more information about that, checkout the beyondcode/tinkerwell driver repository.

We also updated the built-in Laravel to the latest version, which is 10.42.0.

2024-01-10

Additionally, we've added the option to set a custom shortcut for opening preferences which comes in handy especially for folks with non-QWERTZ/Y keyboard layouts.

We also added the start time of a script in the Time / Memory tooltip in the footer. This addition, coupled with the existing time and memory information, gives you more insight into your script's performance.

We also updated the built-in Laravel to the latest version, which is 10.40.0.

#

2023-09-04

Release notes for 3.32.0
#

When you close the last tab using the shortcut, the Welcome tab now appears instead of shutting down the Tinkerwell window. We implemented this feature in response to feedback from numerous users who desired functionality similar to that of VS Code. Additionally, we've addressed an issue where Tinkerwell wouldn't operate correctly if the path to the PHP executable on Windows included a space.

We also updated the built-in Laravel to the latest version, which is 10.21.0.

Customize panels based on your needs and seamlessly integrate them into Tinkerwell. Check out the new documentation for custom panels to learn how.

❗ Driver Deprecations
#

With this version, we deprecate the contextMenu() method in custom drivers. Use appVersion() to provide version information instead. For SetCode, refer to the snippets feature, as seen in the documentation: https://tinkerwell.app/docs/3/advanced-usage/snippets

We also updated the built-in Laravel to the latest version, which is 10.19.0.

Release notes for 3.30.1
#

  • Several minor bugfixes
2023-08-03

Release notes for 3.30.0
#

We've made the Collision error handler optional to better suit your specific project needs. We understand that some projects - for example WordPress - are often laden with multiple plugins that generate numerous PHP notices and warnings. While these typically don't affect the site's functionality, they would be caught by the Collision handler. To avoid this, you can now enable or disable Collision globally from the preferences. It's turned off by default for WordPress projects, but if you wish to enable it for a particular project, you can do so using a custom driver.

In addition, we've resolved a bug that opened the Mac menu for some users when using the shortcut for commenting a line (Shift + CMD + 7).

We also updated the built-in Laravel to the latest version, which is 10.17.1.

2023-07-28

Release notes for 3.29.0
#

We also updated the built-in Laravel version to 10.16.1.

2023-07-13

Release Notes for 3.28.0
#

To freshen things up, this version introduces a new icon set.

We also updated the built-in Laravel to the latest version, which is 10.15.0.

2023-06-22

Release notes for 3.27.0
#

We're excited to introduce Collision Support for Tinkerwell!

Collision offers error reports that help you to quickly identify the mishap in your code by providing a comprehensive error stack and even a snippet of the code causing the issue. Now this great functionality is also available in Tinkerwell! Just watch out for your next new Exception() 💥

In addition, we've addressed a bug that was causing difficulties when working with Hoa dependencies on Windows.

It's now also possible to rename tabs for the session by double clicking on them and to close a tab with a tap on your middle mouse button - if you have one. ;)

This version also fixes a bug where table mode would return an error when the code contained a opening PHP tag.

Commands are coming to Tinkerwell!
#

The first commands are available via the Open Anything feature now. Just hit CMD/CTRL+Shift+P and start typing the name of the command you search for. Type Open default Laravel to open the built-in default Laravel app. If you want to see all commands, you can list them by typing cmd. For now we focus on commands that speed up your workflow - for example opening the Connection Manager, the built-in default Laravel or changing the working directory.

Laravel default icon says goodbye
#

Tinkerwell has changed a lot in the past few months - for the better! The tool is more flexible and can run with many different setups and frameworks and so it's time to hide the default Laravel icon from the toolbar to clear up the minimal UI. The project is still there and opens with every new tab if you don't set a custom default project. If you have a custom default project, you can still access the built-in Laravel by opening it via the Open Anything feature with our new command Open default Laravel.

  • Updated built-in Laravel to version 9.30.1
