Vagrant Laravel Stack

Just dump the Vagrantfile and Berksfile in your Laravel project and you're good to go!


A Vagrant stack designed for Laravel 4 development and deployment.

Chef is used for provisioning and Berkshelf is used to manage cookbooks.

Authors note: I've been wanting to do a Laravel-specific Vagrant stack for a while, and when Taylor Otwell tweeted out that he was looking for such a thing, I decided to build it out based on his requirements.



First, install Laravel 4 in to a local directory on your machine.

$ composer create-project laravel/laravel projectname --prefer-dist

All you need to do now, in order to run your Laravel installation using Vagrant is to place the Vagrantfile and Berksfile from this repository in the root of your Laravel installation

$ cd projectname
$ curl -O\{Vagrantfile,Berksfile\}

Optionally, you can configure the Vagrantfile to specify the project name or customize the installed packages or modules.

$ vim Vagrantfile

Your directory structure should look something like this:

├── Berksfile - Your new Berksfile
├── Dirtfile.json
├── Vagrantfile - Your new Vagrantfile
├── app
   ├── commands
   ├── config
   ├── controllers
   ├── database
   ├── lang
   ├── models
   ├── start
   ├── storage
   ├── tests
   ├── views
├── artisan
├── bootstrap
├── composer.json
├── public
├── server.php

You can now start the Virtual Machine and initialize the provisioning process.

$ vagrant up

The first run may take 8-10 minutes to complete, so you might want to go grab a cup of coffee at this point.

After the provisioning has completed, you can access your project at http://projectname.local


The stack is designed in such a way that it is very easy to configure. Just update the Vagrantfile to change installed npm packages, apt packages, php modules, etc.
