Tinkerwell for Education

Tinkerwell allows you to run PHP code without messing around with web servers or a complex local development setup. This makes it the perfect tool for teaching and learning PHP and its ecosystem.

We've been students too – and that's why we've created this program to make our tools accessible for everyone.

Learn basic PHP

Tinkerwell can run PHP scripts and display their results without needing to set up a web server. This makes it ideal for teaching and learning PHP and its ecosystem without setting up a complex development environment.

Get familiar with variables, control structures, loops and more before you start using a framework like Laravel.

Level up with Laravel

The code editor includes a default Laravel application that allows you to use all methods and helpers from the Laravel framework. You can filter data with collections, consume your first API via the HTTP client, and more.

Once you build your first application, you can open it with Tinkerwell and prototype controllers before you implement them in your own project. This speeds up your development process and makes it easier to learn new technologies.
