About ChangeWindows

ChangeWindows does what Microsoft doesn't: document every change we can possibly find in Windows on any platform.

Open source

This repository is a big shift for ChangeWindows from the previous 4 major versions. Not only is this the first time we're publishing the actual source of our website, we're also using for the first time a framework, in this case Laravel, to build our website. Not only because we're lazy, but also because it makes things a lot simpeler and cleaner.


To run ChangeWindows, you'll need the following:

  • PHP 7.2.0 or higher, including extensions required by Laravel 6.x
  • MySQL
  • Composer
  • NPM


Clone this repository to any given directory and setup the .env file with all required parameters. An example of an .env file can be found in .env.example. Then execute the following commands.

composer install
npm install
php artisan migrate
php artisan db:seed

To run ChangeWindows, use the following command:

php artisan serve

This will launch a server at Also run this NPM command.

npm run watch

This will compile various files, mostly SCSS and keep an eye out for changes.

For a production build, execute the following commands:

composer install --prefer-dist --no-scripts --no-dev -o
npm install --production

Login details

After migrating and seeding the database, there will be 3 accounts from the start.
