What Version of Laravel is This?

There are tons of ways to answer this question each with its own benefits. Lets check out a few.

Artisan

php artisan

The very first line of the output shows the version. Then it shows all the registered commands. Need only the version? Use -V or --version when running the command.

Composer

composer show | grep laravel/framework

This will search the output of all installed packages and only show the Laravel framework.

composer show -- laravel/framework

This will show the version and a bunch of additional information like license, description and dependencies.
