I tried Laragon just today and i say "WOW". Quick build in a minute without setting the host file and homestead.yaml. And not all, i tried also to publicize into the web using ngrok.
Homestead, bye2x. ;)
Did you know that, in addition to the forum, Laracasts includes well over 1000 lessons on modern web development? All for the price of one lunch out per month.
