Run Laravel artisan commands in PHP Storm

Published: Jul 2, 2021 by C.S. Rhymes

PHP Storm has a built in terminal window which you can use to run Laravel artisan commands, but there is a quick configuration change that you can do to make it even easier to run artisan commands.

  • Open Preferences > Tools > Command Line Tool Support
  • Click the plus icon
  • Select Laravel from the Choose tools dropdown and press OK

Command line tools

  • Set an alias, I’ve used artisan in this example
  • Choose your PHP Interpreter or use the default project interpreter
  • Set the Path to script as the location of your Laravel app’s artisan file
  • Press OK

Tool Settings

  • Press control twice to open Run Anything
  • Type the alias you entered, artisan in my example, and a list of artisan commands will appear, along with the available options.
  • The list of available commands will filter down as you type
  • Enter the command and press enter and it will run the command for you in the PHP Storm terminal

Run Anywhere

Building a VS Code Extension for Gutenberg blocks

I have been tasked with building a new website using WordPress. The last time I used WordPress was a few years ago and involved using Advanced Custom Fields to build custom pages and layouts. Things have changed a lot over the years and now there is the built in Gutenberg editor, which uses blocks to create a custom layout and add content. The trouble was, there didn’t seem to be great support in Visual Studio Code for the blocks, as they use HTML comments.

Recently I had to write some tests for a piece of JavaScript code that used window.location. This left me trying to figure out how to mock the window.location so that I could pass in dummy data and ensure that the data I got back was what was expected. Here was how I managed to solve the issue.
