Install Laravel Valet in Ubuntu

The official Laravel Valet development environment is great if you are an Apple user and thanks to Carlos Priego you can now enjoy the same benefits you are an Ubuntu user.

Lets see how to install Valet in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
Installation is really simple. First, make sure you are running Ubuntu >= 15.04 with PHP >= 5.6.
1. Now you’ll need the following dependencies and packages:

sudo apt-get install libnss3-tools jq xsel

2. PHP Packages (replace the * with your PHP version):

php*-cli php*-common php*-curl php*-json php*-mbstring php*-mcrypt php*-opcache php*-readline php*-xml php*-zip

3. The final step

composer global require cpriego/valet-ubuntu
valet install

That’s all. Cheeeers 😉 You have Valet in your machine. Enjoy 🙂
