How to check Laravel application running Environment?

Created at 05-Dec-2022, By samar

There are different ways to check the laravel application running environment. We will discuss them one by one.

Sometimes, we have to check the application environment and based on that we have to do some task in our app. So there are some methods available in Laravel to determine the current environment of Laravel application to solve the problem.

You can call the environment method on app facade and get the current working environment $environment = App::environment();.

  • Check the running environment in the controller using Laravel

    In your controller, you can use app facade to get the current working environment in Laravel. You have to import App facade in your controller file and use the environment() method to get the current running environment.

    app\Http\Controllers\HomeController.php

    if (App::environment('local')) {
        // The environment is local
    }
    
    if (App::environment(['local', 'staging'])) {
        // The environment is either local OR staging...
    }
    
  • Get the current working environment in Laravel blade

    resources\views\home.blade.php

    @if(App::environment('local'))
        <p> in Local environment </p>
    @endif
    

    You have to place code in your blade file and pass the value to environment method which is exists in .env file (APP_ENV=local) or configuration file (config/app.php) 'env' => env('APP_ENV', 'local'),.
