Hey! You are currently looking at the documentation for Tinkerwell 2. The latest version of the documentation is available here.

Custom context menu#

You can customize the application context menu and add custom entries to it.

To get started, create a folder called .tinkerwell in the application directory where you want to customize the context menu.

Then you can create a new file called CustomTinkerwellDriver.php.

This is how the default content could look like:

use Tinkerwell\ContextMenu\SetCode;
use Tinkerwell\ContextMenu\Separator;

class CustomTinkerwellDriver extends LaravelTinkerwellDriver
	public function contextMenu()
        return array_merge(parent::contextMenu(), [
    		SetCode::create('My custom entry', <<<'code'
// Hello from Tinkerwell!
// This code will be preselected when you choose this context menu entry


Depending on which framework/application your app is based on, you will need to extend the correct Tinkerwell driver. You can find a list of all available Tinkerwell drivers on GitHub.

Available context menu items:


A separator in the context menu.



A simple label that displays textual information in the context menu:

Label::create('This is the label text');

The OpenURL class can be used to open a specific URL in the browser, once the user clicks on it.

OpenURL::create('Documentation', 'https://tinkerwell.app');

Code Snippets

The SetCode class can be used to automatically pre-fill the Tinkerwell code area with specific code snippets. The code will not automatically be executed.

SetCode::create('Hello World', 'echo "Hello world";');

Last but not least you can group multiple context items into a Submenu.

Submenu::create('This is a submenu', [
    Label::create('Entry 1'),
    Label::create('Entry 2'),
    Label::create('Entry 3')
