Started a new Conversation How Laravel-Valet Knows Which Driver To Use?

Hi all, i asking my self how laravel valet knows which driver is should use? I understand how to write a driver with the SampleValetDriver.php but i can't find how Laravel Valet decide which driver is the correct one.

I'm trying to get shopware6 running with Laravel-Valet and i guess the Symfony-Driver is the correct one. This one gets shipping by laravel-valet out of the box.

Greetings from Germany,

Replied to SortBy And Accented Words


Route::get('/sort', function() {
    setlocale(LC_COLLATE, 'fr_FR.utf8'); // No need to set this if you're doing it elsewhere

    $collection = collect([
    ])->sortBy("name", SORT_LOCALE_STRING); // Signals to arsort() to take locale into 

array:4 [▼
  0 => array:1 [▼
    "name" => "maroon"
  1 => array:1 [▼
    "name" => "zoo"
  2 => array:1 [▼
    "name" => "ábel"
  3 => array:1 [▼
    "name" => "élof"

seems your example is not working
