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

Creating multi-worksheet Excel files with Simple Excel

Recently I had to create a large data export for a project. I like using Spatie’s Simple Excel package to do this as it is very simple to use and works well when exporting large amounts of data to a CSV or Excel file with the ability to stream a download to the browser. This particular project had an additional requirement though, exporting multiple worksheet’s of data at once. Luckily, this package allows you to do this too.

An alternative to the for loop, the foreach loop is used to iterate or loop over an array. The foreach loop allows you to loop through the items in the array without setting a limit for it to stop like you do in a for loop.

If you have something you want to repeat then consider using a PHP for loop, saving you from copying and pasting the same code multiple times. Adding the code into a loop means you only have to write it once, and you also only have to maintain the code in one place in future.
