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
