I built a PHP tool that doesn't need to deploy dev environment at all.

Hey everyone!

I hacked around the last couple of months and just released a (super experimental) first version of an integration app called ServBay.

Just installed on your machine. you can install the app globally and use it to develop and test PHP code, all without any development environment!

Why'd I build this? I've gotten messages from new PHP developers who don't know how to set up a development environment, and some experienced developers who don't want to invest time or resources in deploying the environment on new equipment. I wondered if there was a tool that could solve all these problems. So, this is what I came up with!

Are there any caveats? Of course, I cannot guarantee that it is flawless and perfect, but I have done my best to improve this product. Currently, all its functionalities are working properly, and if a command doesn't work as expected, don't be surprised (open an issue if you'd like though).

**What's next? **I will iterate on new versions, patch bugs, and introduce additional features. For example, besides PHP, I will incorporate other programming languages and also release an enterprise version.

Just let me know what you think!
