How to clear cache in Laravel without artisan command

In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to clear cache in Laravel application, config cache in a Laravel 8 application using with out artisan command-line interface.

Sometimes we may wish to execute an Artisan command outside of the CLI. For instance, you may wish to pass an Artisan command from a route or controller. You may use the call method on the Artisan façade to accomplish this. The call method accepts the name of the command as the first argument, and an array of command parameters as the second argument. The exit code will be returned:


// clear route cache
Route::get('/clear-route-cache', function () {
    return 'Routes cache has clear successfully !';

//clear config cache
Route::get('/clear-config-cache', function () {
    return 'Config cache has clear successfully !';

// clear application cache
Route::get('/clear-app-cache', function () {
    return 'Application cache has clear successfully!';

// clear view cache
Route::get('/clear-view-cache', function () {
    return 'View cache has clear successfully!';

Using the queue method on the Artisan façade, you may even queue Artisan commands so they are processed in the background by your queue workers. Before using this method, make sure you have configured your queue and are running a queue listener:

Route::get('/foo', function () {
    Artisan::queue('email:send', [
        'user' => 1, '--queue' => 'default'

Other ways to clear cache in Laravel

Removing items from the cache programmatically is as easy as clearing the cache via the artisan command. In addition, you can use the cache façade to access the cache or use the cache helper.


Clearing cached items with the tag awesome-tag is as easy as purging a specific cache store:

Using the code above, you can clear cached items with the tag awesome-tag. The flush() function works here to clear all data matching the string added in the tags function.

The methods above enable clear cache in Laravel without using the CLI or the artisan commands.
