Hey! You are currently looking at the documentation for Tinkerwell 3. The latest version of the documentation is available here.


Tinkerwell allows you to create multiple tabs in your editor. Each of those tabs can open a different local or remote application folder.

Each tab can have a different tinker mode open. You could have one tab showing you the table result of an Eloquent query on one of your live servers, while the other tab is a simple scratchpad using the default Laravel application.

Open and close

To open a new tab, press Ctrl/Cmd + T.

If you want to close an existing tab, you can either press Ctrl/Cmd + W or click on the X icon in the tab title.


You can switch between tabs with the following commands:
