An artisan command for opening the project's database in TablePlus
Artisan::command('db:open {connection?}', function ($connection = null) {
if (! file_exists('/Applications/')) {
$this->warn('This command uses TablePlus, are you sure it\'s installed?');
$this->line("Install here:\n");
$driver = $connection ?: config('database.default');
$host = config("database.connections.{$driver}.host");
$user = config("database.connections.{$driver}.username");
$password = config("database.connections.{$driver}.password");
$database = config("database.connections.{$driver}.database");
if ($driver === 'sqlite') {
exec("open {$database}");
} else {
exec("open {$driver}://{$user}:{$password}@{$host}/{$database}");

You inspire me, I convert your script to bash script as function in my ~/.zshrc

function dbopen() {
  if [ -d '/Applications/' ]; then
    DRIVER=$(grep -m1 DB_CONNECTION .env | cut -d '=' -f2)
    HOST=$(grep -m1 DB_HOST .env | cut -d '=' -f2)
    USER=$(grep -m1 DB_USERNAME .env | cut -d '=' -f2)
    PASSWORD=$(grep -m1 DB_PASSWORD .env | cut -d '=' -f2)
    DATABASE=$(grep -m1 DB_DATABASE .env | cut -d '=' -f2)

    if [ $DRIVER = "sqlite" ]; then
      open $DATABASE
    echo "This command uses TablePlus, are you sure it's installed?"
    echo "Install here:"

Does anyone know if any other options are supported? I.E. can I tell TP to use the "local" color scheme when it opens? I don't want to save a permanent connection, but it'd be cool to mimic some of the same features.
