Laravel Homestead in a docker container – a better and faster alternative

When I started using Laravel Homestead, I was excited about it, everything you need is packaged in a vagrant box. I don’t know about you, but vagrant has always been slow for me.

So what I did is take the provisioning script used in Laravel Homestead, build docker image, and start a container using that image.

I just published a github repository containing everything we need.

Setup steps are straightforward and easy to implement. You should be up and running in a few minutes.
