Together with Marcel Pociot and our colleagues at Beyond Code and Spatie, I'm currently building Flare, a paid service which will be revealed at Laracon EU. Together with the service we'll release a package that will change the way you will work with Laravel. To stay in the loop subscribe to our mailinglist at https://flareapp.io
PHP 7.2 was released almost two months ago. I decided to wait a bit until a stable version of Xdebug with PHP 7.2 compatiblity was available. And that happened yesterday with the release of Xdebug 2.6.
I'm on MacOS and use brew to install stuff. Upgrading from PHP 7.1 to 7.2 is laughably easy. These are the steps that I performed:
brew tap homebrew/homebrew-php
brew unlink php71
brew install php72 --with-argon2
brew install php72-xdebug
If you need imagick or redis support, execute these two commands:
brew install php72-imagick
brew install php72-redis
And that's all there is to it.
Follow me on Twitter. I regularly tweet out programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.
Every two weeks I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.
Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.
Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.
