How to Install the New Laravel Installer Terminal Client
Published: October 12, 2013
Well, Laravel 4.1 was installed today, and looks like a feature-packed release. You can learn all about it here.
In addition to many other great changes, there is also the ability to install Laravel using a command line tool, which is awesome. But for newbies and designer types, installing this tool can be hard. Don’t worry though, you can do it.
- Open your Terminal client.
Type this in. We’re going to be downloading the file using
wget, rename it, move it to
/usr/local/bin. (Don’t type the $), and then make it executable. You’ll need to have
wgetinstalled. Here’s how:
$ wget http://laravel.com/laravel.phar $ mv laravel.phar /usr/local/bin/laravel $ chmod 777 /usr/local/bin/laravel
Install a new Laravel project using your terminal client:
$ laravel new blog
Hope that helps someone. Let me know if you have any problems!
