I was using Xampp for local development until about a year ago when I found Laragon & I haven't looked back since. This is seriously the most powerful local development tool I have in my entire "developer toolkit".
I started working for a new company about 2 months ago & their entire team was using various setups for local dev and were always encountering problems. Setting up a new project locally was always a nightmare for them due to mysql version conflicts, having to change php versions, etc. When I introduced Laragon to them, they were amazed at how easy it was to install, maintain and how flexible it was to update/switch their dependencies. My manager told me that since the team has started using Laragon for local dev, project setup time has gone down from an average of 6 HOURS, to less than 30 mins. AMAZING.
In the opensource community, people sometimes forget the amount of time, effort and hard work that goes into creating something like this. So the reason why I'm posting this is just to say thank you to @leokhoa for developing & maintaining such an incredible piece of software. Your amazing efforts are very much appreciated!
