Hijacking this thread slightly.
I'm totally new to Laravel. Normally use Vue/Nuxt/Django/MODx. Wee bit of PHP for scripts.
I'm taking over a nearly complete Laravel project from a Developer who is ill.
Trying to get it running on Opalstack.
The project is the usual madness of 25,000 files, 150Mb starting at an app folder, node_modules, public, vendor etc. with composer,json and .env in the root.
And so, do I develop/build on my local machine or do I develop/build inside the opalstack folder?
And anyone any tips on a get started guide. I've got Sitepoint Premium but their Laravel videos are 4 years old...
I've seen two very different approaches.
https://laravel.com/docs/8.x/installation#getting-started-on-windows with Docker. WSL2. Sails
Very different. And I'd rather avoid WSL2 etc for now until I'm sure I want to use Laravel or not. Hence a preference to somehow develop on Opalstack if that's even possible.
