Chapter 6. A Command-line Companion Called Artisan

In the last few chapters, we have used Artisan for various tasks, such as running database migrations. However, as we will see in this chapter, Laravel's command-line utility has far more capabilities and can be used to run and automate all sorts of tasks. In the next pages, you will learn how Artisan can help you:

  • Inspect and interact with your application

  • Enhance the overall performance of your application

  • Write your own commands

By the end of this tour of Artisan's capabilities, you will understand how it can become an indispensable companion in your projects.
