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.
