Laravel 4 Tutorial / Home

Welcome

Welcome to this tutorial on Laravel 4!

Requirements

Before you can start with this tutorial, you need a working copy of Laravel. The main Laravel website can be found at laravel.com. The documentation can be found on laravel.com/docs.

Laravel 4 is dependent on Composer. On the website you can download a linux or windows version. PHP and Composer should be available for console, so add the paths to the global directories.

To install Laravel you have to start a console in the main laravel directory:

php composer.phar create-project laravel/laravel your-project-name --prefer-dist
or
composer create-project laravel/laravel your-project-name --prefer-dist

After the installation you should see the following message in your browser:

Laravel Hello-Screen

Remark

You can also download it from GitHub at Master-Branch. I added the laravel-package I used for this tutorial in the downloads.

To install Laravel this way you have to extract the zip and start a console in the main laravel directory:

php composer.phar install
or
composer install

For each chapter I upload a zip-file with the changes to the Download-Section.
