Laravel Zero is a micro-framework built out of Laravel and is used to build console-based applications.
In this post, we will go over how you can install a fresh Laravel Zero project and build command-based projects.
Step 1: Install Laravel Zero Installer.
To install a Laravel Zero project, we need to install its composer installer in our system. Let’s first do that.
Run the following command in your terminal / command-line
composer global require "laravel-zero/installer"
Step 2: Create a project using the installer
Once the installer is ready you can now use it to create a new laravel zero application by running the following command.
laravel-zero new movie-cli
movie-cli is the name of the project.
The application is ready with the following structure.
Notice that the application structure is different from the normal Laravel Application.
Step 3: Test project by running default command
By default Larvael Zero includes a Command in your project with signature
inspiring, If you run this command it will spit out an Inspiring Quote.
To run the command, execute following in your terminal.
php movie-cli inspiring
Where movie-cli is the project name.
That’s all about getting started with Laravel Zero
