“ The Workbench is the perfect tool to make tedious, common tasks easy. Refactor and streamline your code with a single button. ”

Shift's primary focus is upgrading Laravel. But you may only run Shift once a year. That leaves a big window of time for your project to fall behind on the latest conventions.
You may run Shifts like the Laravel Fixer, but sometimes you may simply want to cherry pick some of the automation for an existing Laravel project you've inherited.
You may also manage a few Laravel projects and want to normalize the Laravel conventions or code style they use. Or manage their Composer dependencies.
Well, that's exactly what the Workbench does. Using the Workbench you may create custom builds from a growing set of tasks and quickly run them on multiple projects to help maintain and modernize your Laravel applications.
Run the Workbench locally with the desktop app or from the cloud. Get started now, or continue reading…
“ Just saved 2-3 hours using the Workbench. This is 100% worth the money. ”
