Joe Ferguson has a quick post to his site today showing you how to use a Homestead VM to run a Slim 3 application with just a few quick commands.
I’ve been a fan of SlimPHP for a really long time. Recently I started using it for a site that I do freelancing development for and wanted to share a quick solution to local development. It’s no secret that I love Laravel’s Homestead vagrant environment. Using the per-project installation method, you are only three commands away from running a SlimPHP skeleton application in a local Homestead VM.
The remainder of the post shows the commands to:
- create a new Slim application based on the Skeleton
- Setting up Homestead
- And creating a new instance to host the Slim application
With a quick
vagrant up your virtual machine is ready to go with the application ready to run.
