All Laravel applications include Tinker, a REPL powered by the PsySH package. Tinker allows you to interact with your entire Laravel application on the command line, including the Eloquent ORM, jobs, events, and more. To enter the Tinker environment, run the tinker Artisan command:
Chaning password (or any other Model data)
Launch the console from main folder with
php artisan tinker
After that you enters Laravels console — all commands from now are interpreted as php code. So to change email@example.com password you would just run.
$user = App\User::where('email', 'firstname.lastname@example.org')->first(); $user->password = Hash::make('password'); $user->save();
That’s it. Password changed.
