At this moment I want to share with you, how to work Laravel Framework in Windows.
Mexico city, March 22, 2020. When the COVID-19 pandemic started in Mexico City. I had to emigrate from the city and buy a computer with windows 10.
lol At this point I thought: how do I develop my laravel applications on windows?
So, I met Laragon, a tool is amazing.
Initially I had a lot of trouble running the PHPUnit tests. 🥺
Then I managed to run the tests:
Multiple php versions:
An important benefit is the change of PHP versions between 7.1 to 7.4, this is a headache when working with laravel valet on Mac OS.
We can switch between mysql or mariadb. This depends on your projects.
When we work with Windows, there are possibly problems with the directory path.
In my experience I had problems with the jest tests. because the node_modules directory cannot be found.
Anyway, Laragon is very elegant for laravel development.
