So you want to try Docker with your next Laravel project! You don’t want to waste your time configuring Docker containers. You just want to get up and running quickly like you do with Homestead! Laradock.io makes that possible.
Laradock strives to make the development experience easier. It contains pre-packaged Docker Images that provides you a wonderful development environment without requiring you to install PHP, NGINX, MySQL, REDIS, and any other software on your local machine.
If you are wondering why Docker not Vagrant!?
Vagrant gives you Virtual Machine in minutes while Docker gives you Virtual Containers in seconds. Instead of providing a full Virtual Machine, like you get with Vagrant, Docker provides you lightweight Virtual Containers, that share the same kernel and allow to safely execute independent processes. Want more information about that check out this post.
What are you waiting for? Read the documentation and get started today.
Here’s a demo video on how to Laradock V4.
That’s not all! Laradock can also run any of your PHP projects the same way, check it out http://laradock.io
Inspired by Laravel Homestead.
