Laravel is my option after CodeIgniter . As usual, installation is big thing for me and my netbook run on Windos 7 starter.
Steps for Laravel installation on Windows 7 :
Download latest laravel version
In time of writing I got 4.0.4 version.
Put it on Xampp htdocs directory.
I rename it to laravel after extract its content.
Git work ‘distribution system control‘ . It will work together with composer.
Download latest version of Git for Windows from here.
Installation is straightforward. A few notes during installation :
– Make sure to choose “Run Git from the Windows Command Prompt” on adjusting your PATH environment section.
– Checkout Window style,commit unix-style line endings on Configuring the line ending conversion section.
Install Composer for Windows
Get latest version from here. Install it as usual. Nothing serious here 🙂
