Installing Laravel installer globally on Mac
Laravel comes with a handy command line installer, once installed can be ran anywhere from terminal to install a new Laravel application. In this post I’ll be covering the steps involved to get the installer installed and the PATH configured correctly.
First of all install the installer using composer:
composer global require "laravel/installer"
The official docs say:
Make sure to place the
~/.composer/vendor/bindirectory (or the equivalent directory for your OS) in your PATH so the
laravelexecutable can be located by your system.Some people
To do this open your bash profile in nano:
Next set the PATH location.
Exit nano by pressing CTRL + x restart terminal.
Now the installer can be used anywhere by calling Laravel new folloed by the project you can to create such as Blog:
Laravel new Blog
