Valet

Recommended Posts

I don't know how many people keep up with Laravel but with the release of 5.3 they launched Valet. If you haven't seen it, check it out if you are running on OS X.

I used to run Vagrant and loved it but I think this is much better

I actually use it from time to time, mostly when doing smaller projects and solo development. When developing in a team, I still stick to a Vagrant environment to make sure all in team uses the same tools, and that we run as close as we can to the production environment. And yeah, Valet is much faster (or dev environments in general that runs on the local machine and not a virtual one) :) Vagrant and NFS can be daarn slow some times.

There's actually a great form by WeProvide that enables Valet to host other software locally. My team at Magento uses this to do all our local development, it can be easily adapted to support other applications as well, similar to the core Valet, just with more bells and whistles.

I used Valet at work, since I'm on a mac here. At home, I'm on linux, so Valet-Linux to the rescue too.

As much as laravel-valet implied valet is a laravel only product, it's not. If your code is within /project/public and you run "valet link site_name", you're good.

I did not even realize there was a Linux version. That's pretty awesome.

Valet Plus helps with that by providing drivers for various different software: https://github.com/weprovide/valet-plus/tree/master/cli/drivers

  • Magento 2
  • WordPress
  • Drupal
  • Joomla
  • etc.
