What is it ?
Another Drupal 8 development environment setup, built with Vagrant and Ansible. I need a simple and straightforward way to have a nice and simple dev env for Drupal 8. When it comes to OS, I love Debian for my LAMP stack, and I want to have all my envs (dev, staging and production) as similar as I can. This is based on Debian Buster X64, Apache, MariaDb, PHP, all the default distribution versions, I add mailhog, composer, drush, and some tools I like (nano, htop ...). If you want to have a really nice and configurable tool, with lot of options, you can see these pages:
If you just want to have Debian Buster, Apache, Mariadb, mailhog and Drupal, you can go further.
BUT: don't use it as is for production servers, you need to configure php, apache mariadb to fit your server, and of course take all the necessary security precaution. If you use these Ansible rules, your server will work, but you don't have a real SSL cert, or security enhancement. This is to speed up the dev, even staging (if it's not public), but be more more careful when it comes to your production environment. You can of course use this as your base, it's MIT licence, but I am pretty sure that you can find a good Ansible playbook for this.

Build your development environment
Clone this repository
git clone https://github.com/nicolas-san/drupal_8_simple_dev_env
Create a vars/main.yml file
cd drupal_8_simple_dev_env cp ansible/vars/main_dist.yml ansible/vars/main.yml
Edit and set your values in ansible/vars/main.yml
mariadb_root_pass: 'MakeARealPasswordHere' project_name: 'MyProject' database_name: "my_project" database_user: "defaultUser"
You can customize the vagrantfile
If you want you can edit the vagrantfile, you can change the hostname, ip, memory ...
config.vm.network "private_network", ip: "192.168.47.11" config.vm.hostname = "drupal.localdev" v.name = "drupal_8_simple_dev_env" v.memory = "2048" v.cpus = 2
In the project root dir (drupal_8_simple_dev_env)
If at some point something is wrong, you can run the provision again with
vagrant up --provision
Or, destroy and start again
vagrant destroy vagrant up
Install Drupal 8
Go to https://drupal.localdev and install it.
You can make ansible more verbose by adding "vv" to the ansible command in the Vagrantfile:
ansible.verbose = "vvv"
I have read, search and take information and code snippets from lot of places, like stackoverflow, and some github repositories. At have started this only for me, I did not record all the sources, but I want to share, so if you recognize a part of something you share, first thank you, and if you want open an issue with your link, or PR this readme, I will add you here :)
