Today I get a little shaken the general theme of the blog to take some notes and remember the steps on something that is trivial for a developer.
This month I have to pick a project based on Laravel (A PHP framework for who does not know) and to be honest, do not touch the web development since last summer. So the first thing I'll do is to install Vagrant to avoid the use of LAMP/MAMP and generate unnecessary resources on my ancient iMac. Ready?...
2) Install [composer][(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Composer_(software)) and type the next command to config the environment:
curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php sudo mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/ nano ~/.bash_profile and add: alias composer="php /usr/local/bin/composer.phar" sudo nano /etc/paths and add: ~/.composer/vendor/bin ssh-keygen -t rsa -C "you@homestead" sudo nano /etc/hosts and add: 192.168.10.10 homestead.app
3) Open new terminal and download Homestead:
vagrant box add laravel/homestead composer global require "laravel/homestead=~2.0"
4) Open a new terminal and run: homestead init and homestead edit if you want to edit the configuration file (optional). For example, you would change the path on folders - map: and sites: to: with your project path.
5) Now run homestead up and test openning your web browser: http://homestead.app
Some usefull commads:
