Run Artisan Commands on Remote Servers
Laravel Remote is a package by Spatie that provides a command to execute Artisan commands on a remote server.
Introducing spatie/laravel-remote, a Laravel package to easily run @laravelphp Artisan commands on remote servers.

Here are some examples of remote commands from the documentation:
php artisan remote cache:clear # Raw ls command on the server php artisan remote ls --raw # Raw ls with flags php artisan remote --raw "ls -a" # Defining which host configuration to use php artisan remote cache:clear --host=my-other-host
At the heart of the package’s configuration, you define hosts for remote servers that you want to interact with. In order to execute a command on a given host, you can use the
--host flag for the desired configuration:
return [ 'hosts' => [ 'default' => [ 'host' => env('REMOTE_HOST'), 'port' => env('REMOTE_PORT', 22), 'user' => env('REMOTE_USER'), 'path' => env('REMOTE_PATH'), ], 'example2' => [ 'host' => env('EXAMPLE2_REMOTE_HOST'), 'port' => env('EXAMPLE2_REMOTE_PORT', 22), 'user' => env('EXAMPLE2_REMOTE_USER'), 'path' => env('EXAMPLE2_REMOTE_PATH'), ], ], ];
Under the hood, this package uses Spatie’s ssh package, a lightweight PHP library to execute commands over SSH.
