PHP Sandbox

~ Improved & slimmed down fork of PHP Console ~

A web editor to try your PHP code.

Creating a test file or using php's interactive mode can be a bit cumbersome to try random php snippets. This allows you to run small bits of code easily right from your browser.

It is secure since it's accessible only from localhost, and very easy to setup and use.

Tip: Press Ctrl+Enter to evaluate the code

About this fork

This is a fork of the original code by Jordi Boggiano.


  • Changed colors to look more like Sublime Text, with Monokai theme
  • Slightly improved layout
  • Removed info text at the bottom of the screen
  • Output is now plain text, not HTML (more useful for debugging)
  • Removed "krumo" (some kind of PHP library)
  • Removed "clippy" (flash applet for clipboard support)
  • Removed the "Melody" plugin and composer files
  • Updated ACE to 1.2.0 with a patch to support the trait keyword
  • Hidden loader animation (was broken)




Clone the git repo and place it somewhere in your webroot.

You can also use the internal PHP server - run:

$ php -S localhost:1337

And go to http://localhost:1337

You can also use the Makefile - run make and the server will start.


Default settings are available in config.php.dist, if you would like to modify them, you can copy the file to config.php and edit settings.


Code contributions or ideas are obviously much welcome. Send pull requests or issues on github.
