Hi guys , So if you are here then you made your mind to get started with laravel and thats a good thing . Installing Laravel is not a straight forward process since it is not a zip package or installer to head start with . Below are steps we need to follow to setup laravel .
- Download XAMPP
- Create GITHUB Account and Setup git on your local machine
- Install Composer
- Clone Laravel 4
- Create a test database
- Thats it run it now
Feel free to jump video sections if you have already did it .
Below you can find some code snips from video
