Laravel -

Vue.js -

PHP - PHP can be installed in different ways. If you do not currently have PHP installed, use google to find the best method for you.

  • Increase your local PHP memory_limit var. We use 1g. memory_limit = 1G

MySQL - MySQL can be installed in different ways. If you do not currently have MySQL installed, use google to find the best method for you.

Optional - A visual tool for looking at the database and data is suggested. MySql Workbench is our preference -

In addition to creating the environment yourself, there are also a lot of different tools that can pull together all the dependencies for you. Homestead is an example.

For windows users, Wampserver64 is a useful tool as it installs the MySql server and php at the same time.
