March 22nd, 2018

Here the stpes that i need follow fo install globally laravel on my mac :

1° Install composer globally ( not in you project folder ) :

composer global require "laravel/installer"

2° The official docs say:

Make sure to place the ~/.composer/vendor/bin directory (or the equivalent directory for your OS) in your PATH so the laravel executable can be located by your system.Some people

To do this, open your bash profile in nano, by typeing in terminal :

nano ~/.bash_profile

if you don’t have set the path, do it by copy and paste this :

export PATH="~/.composer/vendor/bin:$PATH"

3° Now we need to instal composer on our project folder, so, go in project folder and execute :

composer install

4° Run laravel

php artisan serve

5° Mantain this terminal window open, and open a new one for install npm

npm install

that’s all, that’s all, from now i f you open a browser page on ” http://localhost:8000/ ” you see that all works.
