  1. Installation & usage
  2. Configure DDD
  3. Install Pest
  4. Install Browsersync

Installation & usage

To get started, you need a plain Laravel installation:

laravel new name
# or
composer create-project laravel/laravel name

Install the package via composer:

composer require ralphjsmit/tall-install

Now run the tall-install command:

php artisan tall-install

# Run this to reindex potential changes in classes.
composer dump-autoload

You can use the following flags to install a particular package.

Note: you can only use this command on a plain Laravel installation. Otherwise I cannot guarantee the correct result.

Configure DDD with tall-install --ddd

You may use the --ddd or -d flag to configure DDD:

php artisan tall-install --ddd

I think this is the most powerful feature, as it rewrites your /app directory to this:

     ├── App
         ├── Console
         ├── Exceptions
         ├── HTTP
         ├── Providers
         ├── Application.php
     ├── Models
     ├── View/Components/Layouts
     // Add your own 'domains' here. Domains are where the business logic of the application is.
     ├── Invoices...
     ├── Customers...
     // Add your own 'apps' here. Apps are the exposed to the outside (like APIs, a dashboard, a separate admin panel) or are your infrastructure (jobs).
     ├── Console
     ├── Jobs
     ├── Api

For me, once I started using DDD I never wanted anything else. A good reference is the Laravel Beyond CRUD course by Brent Roose.

Install Pest with tall-install --pest

You may use the --pest or -p flag to configure Pest:

php artisan tall-install --pest

Install Browsersync with tall-install --browsersync

You may use the --browsersync or -b flag to configure Browsersync for Laravel Valet:

php artisan tall-install --browsersync

This will append the following code to your webpack.mix.js file:

/* Browsersync configuration with Laravel Valet */

const domain = 'valetDomain.test';
const homedir = require('os').homedir();

    proxy: 'https://' + domain,
    host: domain,
    open: 'external',
    https: {
        key: homedir + '/.config/valet/Certificates/' + domain + '.key',
        cert: homedir + '/.config/valet/Certificates/' + domain + '.crt'
    notify: false, //Disable notifications

By default it takes the current folder name as the domain for Valet. You may specify a custom domain with the --url flag:

php artisan tall-install --browsersync --url=custom.test

Cleaning up

You can remove the package from your Composer dependnecies after you've run the tall-install command:

composer remove ralphjsmit/tall-install
