Laravel — Installing Laravel

Well, many does seem to have a bad time using the laravel installer to start learning laravel. Well, scrolling through the docs may also make you feel like laravel is quite enterprise type framework. Simply forget all those homestead and focus on simple command lines to install it.

Using Composer

You can use composer to get started with your project. Simply download your copy of composer from Composer website and install it.

After doing that, open up you terminal (cmd for windows) and just copy these command

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel <project-name>

And, that’s it. You’ve got your copy of laravel. Now, it’s time to harness the power. Type in the following code

cd <project-name>

and you will be on a directory where laravel is installed. Now, for editing, I request you to download Sublime editor (free for now). And after installing Sublime type in the code

subl .

And that’s it. You have your project opened for you in the sublime text editor. Yuhu :)
