Jump to: navigation, search

Laravel is a popular PHP framework for web development. This article introduces how to install system libraries and tools for Laravel version 5.7.

Local development environment

Install PHP 7 packages

Laravel 5.7 recommends PHP >= 7.1.3. PHP 7.2 is shipped in openSUSE Tumbleweed and Leap 15.0. If you are using an older version of openSUSE Leap, you need to add OBS repository devel:languages:php (check here).

sudo zypper install php7 php7-openssl php7-pdo php7-mbstring php7-tokenizer php7-xmlreader php7-xmlwriter php7-ctype php7-json php7-sqlite php-composer

Install Node.js packages

sudo zypper install nodejs npm

Install Laravel installer

composer global require laravel/installer

You need to manually add composer bin directory to system $PATH.

Create new project

laravel new mywebsite
cd mywebsite
npm install

Clone existing project

Copy .env.example to .env file.

composer install
npm install

Run:

php artisan key:generate

Copy the output and save it in .env:

APP_KEY=<the_key_you_generated>

Edit database configuration

Edit .env file and replace database configuration:

DB_CONNECTION=mysql
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1
DB_PORT=3306
DB_DATABASE=homestead
DB_USERNAME=homestead
DB_PASSWORD=secret

with (if you prefer SQLite):

DB_CONNECTION=sqlite
DB_DATABASE=<sqlite_file_path>

You need to make sure the file <sqlite_file_path> exist.

touch <sqlite_file_path>

Run web server

php artisan serve

Open http://127.0.0.1:8000/ in your browser to see if it works.

Production server environment

PHP runtime and tools

sudo zypper install php7 php7-openssl php7-pdo php7-mbstring php7-tokenizer php7-xmlreader php7-xmlwriter php7-ctype php7-json php7-opcache php-composer
