Run `npm install` or `yarn` on the project.



Super-powered laravel new for Laravel and Valet.


composer global require tightenco/lambo


composer global update tightenco/lambo

If this doesn't get you the latest version, check the file at ~/.composer/composer.json. If your version spec for Lambo is ^0.1.#, change it to be ~0.1.


Make sure ~/.composer/vendor/bin is in your terminal's path.

cd ~/Sites
lambo superApplication

This will laravel new superApplication, change into that directory, make an initial Git commit, and open your web browser to that app.

What exactly does it do?

  • laravel new $PROJECTNAME
  • Initialize a git repo, add all of the files, and make a commit with the text "Initial commit."
  • Replace the .env database credentials with the default Mac MySQL credentials: database of $PROJECTNAME, user root, and empty password
  • Replace the .env APP_URL with $PROJECTNAME.$YOURVALETTLD
  • Open $PROJECTNAME.$YOURVALETTLD in your browser

Optional Arguments

  • -h or --help to get the help dialog

    lambo --help
  • -p or --path to specify where to install the application.

    lambo superApplication -p ~/Sites
  • -m or --message to set the first commit message.

    lambo superApplication -m "This lambo runs fast!"
  • -e or --editor to define your editor command. Whatever is passed here will be run as $EDITOR . after creating the project.

    # runs "subl ." in the project directory after creating the project
    lambo superApplication -e subl
  • -d or --dev to choose the develop branch instead of master, getting the beta install

    lambo superApplication --dev
  • -a or --auth to use Artisan to scaffold all of the routes and views you need for authentication

    lambo superApplication --auth
  • -n or --node to run yarn if installed, otherwise runs npm install after creating the project

    lambo superApplication --node
