Artisan is a command-line interface that Laravel provides which helps in making the production process fast and easy. Laravel has its own Command Line interface called Artisan. Its like a Linux command line but the commands are helpful for building a Laravel application. With this command-line tool, we can make models, controllers, and can do data migrations and many more. First, we will have to change the directory in your command line console (i.e. cmd on windows or terminal on Linux/Mac) or any other CLI software, to the directory of your Laravel app.
For Controller: The following command will create a controller:
php artisan make:controller ArticleController
Command below is to create a controller and a model together:
php artisan make:controller ArticleController -m Article
For Eloquent Model: The following command will create a eloquent model:
php artisan make:model Article
For Front-end Scaffolding: The following command will create a front-end scaffolding for the for Bootstrap:
php artisan ui bootstrap
The following command will create a front-end scaffolding for the for Vue:
php artisan ui vue
The following command will create a front-end scaffolding for the for React:
php artisan ui react
To remove the scaffolding, use the below command:
php artisan preset none
Note: You will need to run ‘composer require laravel/ui –dev’ for installing ‘laravel/ui’ package before using the above command.
For Authentication Configuration: The following command will create a full authentication system:
php artisan ui vue --auth
For Migration: The following command will create a migration:
php artisan make:migration create_articles_table
To do database migration for all the tables, run the command below:
php artisan migrate
For Route: The following command will display list of all the routes:

For Listing Commands: The following command will display a list of all the command that are available:

You can also write juts ‘php artisan’ without ‘list’ and will work the same and list out all the artisan commands.
Note: To know more about any command, use -h or –help at the end of the command.
