Installing Laravel Globally on macOS Catalina

Installing Laravel Globally on macOS Catalina

Laravel comes with a command-line installer, once installed can be run anywhere from the terminal for installing a new Laravel application. In this post, I will be showing the necessary steps involved in installing with PATH configured properly.

First of all, install laravel installer using composer

composer global require "laravel/installer"

Now, open the zshrc file using nano

nano ~/.zshrc

After the zshrc file is opened add the following path to the bottom of the file


Exit nano by pressing CTRL + X and save.

Run the following command to also make it available in the current session

source ~/zshrc

Now, the installer can be used anywhere by calling laravel new "your_project_name" without including the quotations.
