Herd for macOS


About Herd

What is Herd?

Herd is a blazing fast, native Laravel and PHP development environment for macOS. It includes everything you need to get started with Laravel development, including PHP, nginx and dnsmasq.

Just like Laravel Valet, all requests to *.test domains will be routed to the correct site installed on your local machine. In fact, Herd is built on top of Laravel Valet, so you can use all the features you already know and love. Unlike Valet, Herd does not require Homebrew to be installed on your system. It ships with its own, pre-compiled binaries which makes it blazing fast to install and use.

By using static binaries for PHP, Herd is extremely fast and lightweight.
