Valet for Windows

While I’d previously used Valet for Linux (a Linux port—duh—of the popular web development environment), I did not know about Valet for Windows until recently. (Valet, for those not in the know, makes it très easy to run several development sites at the same time, at distinct local domains.)

To install Valet on Windows, I simply followed the README file’s instructions, with two notable exceptions:

  • I manually installed PHP 7.2 in C:\php
  • I did not ‘manually configure Windows to use the Acrylic DNS proxy’ but chose to change my Valet domain extension to localhost instead.

Update (Oct 22, 2018): Aaand it broke. Reverting to Valet on an Ubuntu VM.
