SitePoint PHP Blog:
6 Reasons to Move to Laravel Homestead
June 20, 2014 @ 10:14:10

The SitePoint PHP blog has a new post from editor Bruno Skvorc sharing six reasons why he thinks you should move your Laravel-based application over to using the Homestead pre-build Vagrant box.

Laravel Homestead is, in a nutshell: "an official, pre-packaged Vagrant "box" that provides you a wonderful development environment without requiring you to install PHP, a web server, and any other server software on your local machine." In other words, it automatically does what we've done before manually through Vagrant and PuPHPet in articles like these. So what makes it different from your run-of-the-mill Vaprobash/Vagrant/PuPHPet setup? Let's see.

He quickly covers the six points, each with a paragraph or two of explanation:

  • It Works
  • It's Otwell Approved
  • It's Fast to Set Up
  • Ports
  • Best Practices and Common Ground
  • Easy to add sites

There's also a bit of a tutorial aspect here, showing you (via screenshots and configuration examples) how to get some of these points up and running.
