Artisan is a utility that can help you do specific repetitive tasks with bash commands. It covers many tasks, including: working with database migrations and seeding, clearing cache, creating necessary files for Authentication setup, making new controllers, models, event classes, and a lot more.

Artisan is the name of the command-line interface included with Laravel. It provides a number of helpful commands for your use while developing your application.

To view a list of all available Artisan commands, you may use the list command:

php artisan list

To know more about the any available command, just precede its name with help keyword:

php artisan help [command-name]

List all registered routes filtered by multiple methods

php artisan route:list --method=GET --method=POST

This will include all routes that accept GET and POST methods simultaneously.

Running Laravel Artisan commands using PHP code

You can also use Laravel Artisan commands from your routes or controllers.

To run a command using PHP code:


For example,


Creating and registering new artisan command

You can create new commands via

php artisan make:command [commandName]

So this will create [commandName] command class inside app/Console/Commands directory.

inside this class you will find protected $signature and protected $description variables, it represents name and discription of your command which will be used to describe your command.

after creating command you can register your command inside app/Console/Kernel.php class where you will find commands property.

so you can add your command inside the $command array like :

protected $commands = [

and then i can use my command via console.

so as example i have named my command like

protected $signature = 'test:command';

So whenever i will run

php artisan test:command

it will call the handle method inside the class having signature test:command.
