About Herd

What is Herd?

Herd is a blazing fast, native Laravel and PHP development environment for Windows. It provides everything that you need to get started with Laravel development. It ships with PHP, nginx, and Node.js.

Herd Pro upgrades Herd with MySQL, PostgreSQL, redis, and more, and it adds testing and debugging capabilities that you'll use every day when working on web applications.

After installing Herd, it routes all requests to *.test domains to sites on your local machine, and allows you to use composer, the Laravel installer, and Expose directly in your terminal.
