I’ve seen reference in the old Wiki to using something like Scotchbox.io, Vagrant, and other solutions. I’m curious if anyone has a recent post or reference to local environment setups that are “simple”. I’ve setup Linux servers with Nginx or Apache and used those, I’ve used services like CodeAnywhere.
What a simple solution looks like to me, for development and testing only.
- Minimal configuration, management, updating security, etc.
- Low/Zero recurring cost (Mostly hobby development)
- Repeatable (Spin up an environment in a minute or less and test something out, delete it whenever)
I’ve preferred containerized solutions in the past. I like the idea that I’m not installing and configuring supporting software on my machine… but maybe that’s not realistic and it’s not that big a deal to install MySQL/MariaDB locally, configure, etc.
Or does somebody have a VirtualBox image with an Ubuntu LEMP stack pre-installed with Modx 2.8.1 that they want to share? Maybe that’s a simple way. Publish out to the community some MODX pre-installed images for development?
