Nextcloud development environment on macOS

(If you use macOS 10.12 Sierra or earlier, you also need to install dependencies: Get php71 and sqlite via Homebrew.)

  1. Get the Nextcloud code: Either using Github Desktop (or using the Terminal if you prefer that), clone the Nextcloud server repository

  2. Get Nextcloud submodules: Using the Terminal, run this command in the nextcloud folder you just cloned: git submodule update --init

  3. Start the server: In the Terminal, run the command: php -S localhost:8000

  4. Finish installation: In your browser, go to http://localhost:8000. You should see the setup screen asking for username and password.

🎉 Now do your changes and use Github Desktop to push them! :)

(Special thanks to @xMartin for his quick start guide!)

You can’t perform that action at this time.
