How to temporarily disable Laravel Scout/Algolia in Laravel?
Updated on November 08,2022
Ever been in a situation where you quickly want to disable Laravel Scout in a Laravel application?
It could be for many reasons:
- You have exhausted your Algolia quota, and your application is now breaking.
- During testing.
Here is a quick fix.
Put in .env
Update config/Scout.php to:
'driver' => env('SCOUT_DRIVER', 'null')
This way, when you remove the SCOUT_DRIVER variable from your environment file, it will default to null.
