For using the docker version (recommended) of the environment, you first need to stop local services like MySQL, Redis, Elasticsearch and webservers running on port 80.


  • Docker >= 1.10.3.
  • docker-compose, if not already bundled in your docker install.
  • A virtual host named pointing to, this step is needed since the social login callbacks are using this URL.

Operating the docker environment

Starting services

  • Option 1: Keeping the output visible on the terminal
docker-compose up
  • Option 2 : Sending the output of the services to background
docker-compose up -d

Stopping services

  • Option 1: When the output is visible (started with option 1), just hit control + c to stop it.

  • Option 2: When the services are on background or failed to stop with control + c, you can stop them with the following command:

docker-compose down

Running internal commands

When commands like artisan are needed, those commands would need to run inside the docker containers, to do so, use the following sintax:

docker-compose run {service-name} {command-you-want-to-run}

For example. to run migrations, you can do:

docker-compose run app php artisan migrate

Another example, starting a terminal inside the MySQL service

docker-compose run mysql /bin/bash

List of Services

The service names can be located inside the docker-compose.yml file, right now, the following are enabled:

Service Description
cache Runs a Redis 3.2 Instance for Cache and queues
mysql Runs a MySQL 5.7 Instance for Database
app PHP and Caddy Instance that runs the apllication
queue A PHP-CLI container, running php artisan queue:listen command
elastic Elasticsearch instance for search indexing

Coding Guide Lines


PSR-1 & PSR-2 should be enforced, a copy of php-cd-fixer is distributed along with the PHP Docker image, so the following command can automatically format the code before commiting:

docker-compose run app php-cs-fixer --diff --fixers=-psr1,-psr2 fix app

As a alternative, you can alias that command as psr2 or other name:

# Bash and ZSH
alias psr2="docker-compose run app php-cs-fixer --diff --fixers=-psr1,-psr2 fix"

# Fish shell
alias psr2 "docker-compose run app php-cs-fixer --diff --fixers=-psr1,-psr2 fix"

Unit Testing

Following the same structure of existing tests, the main rule it keep tests under the same namespace as the class being tested, in order to avoid useless imports and keep code cleaner

Code coverage as HTML is already ignored on git when generated on the coverage directory, to run tests with coverage reports, use

php vendor/bin/phpunit --coverage-html=coverage
