Step 9: Might want to mention that a restart of Git bash is necessary (since the .bash_profile is loaded upon start) for those who keep Git bash up after first startup ;-) (i stumbled upon issues with homestead up and figured that out).
Step 10: Seems to be some typo there I haven’t quite figured out yet, as a pure copy/paste gives this error: [Symfony\Component\Console\Exception\RuntimeException]
Too many arguments, expected arguments “command” “package” “directory” “version”.
And upon rewriting, fixing the space after first dash and just removing last variable:
composer create-project -prefer-dist laravel/laravel
Gives this error:
Could not find package — prefer-dist with stability stable.
Currently “stuck” figuring this part out :-)
