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


You can customize Tinkerwell and the code editor by clicking the settings icon in the lower left corner or press CMD+,.

The main settings let you toggle the layout of the editor and output windows from a vertical to a horizontal split, and you can change the theme and font settings of the editor.

The "Auto evaluate script" configuration determines if you want to automatically execute your code as soon as it changes or manually run the code. While this is very useful when running simple helper functions or collection methods, you might want to disable this, when working with database queries.

This makes sure that you are able to double check your code before you run it. Auto evaluation is disabled on remote connections and can not be enabled.

Advanced Settings

The "Advanced" tab in the settings allows you to specify the PHP version that you want to use. See the installation section to learn more about this.

The Forge API Key configuration is required if you want to automatically sync all of your available Forge sites with Tinkerwell, so that you can easily connect to them through Tinkerwell's SSH feature.

Since Tinkerwell 2.21, you can enable a colored connection bar that indicates the current SSH connection.
