An Open Letter to the Female Hat-Wearing Dog From “Go Dog, Go”:

You don’t even know me, but I wanted to take a minute to tell you that what matters is that you like your own hat, hat-wearing female dog. Who is this guy anyway, some sort of dog hat expert?? Who cares what he thinks??? Wear a hat you love and if he doesn’t like it? F*#% him.

I’m printing this out and stuffing it in our copy. :)

These are just a few notes about how to set up Laravel with Homestead. Please don’t follow these steps. :) Use the official instructions instead. I might turn it into a better guide at some point.

  • Install VirtualBox
  • Install Vagrant
  • Install Composer
  • Install Laravel: composer global require "laravel/installer"
  • Install Homestead: git clone https://github.com/laravel/homestead.git ~/Homestead
  • Make Code directory: mkdir ~/Code
  • Create Laravel project: cd ~/Code; laravel new [project-name]
  • Initialize Homestead: cd ~/Homestead; bash init.sh
  • Configure Homestead: vi ~/.homestead/Homestead.yaml
    • Set sites:map to [project-name].local
    • Set sites:to to /home/vagrant/Code/[project-name]/public
  • Add Host Name (By modifying /etc/hosts or using Server.app)
    • Point [project-name].local at
  • Add the Homestead box to Vagrant: vagrant box add laravel/homestead
  • Create the Vagrant machine: vagrant up
