Example

$config = config(); // Simply get $config API var
$debug = config()->debug; // Get value of debug
$debug = config('debug'); // Same as above, shortcut syntax
config()->debug = true; // Set value of debug
config('debug', true);  // Same as above, shortcut syntax

Usage

$config = config();

// usage with all arguments
$config = config(string $key = '', null $value = null);
