Here is a Docker based local development environment prepared, which provides a very flexible and extensible way of building your custom Laravel applications.

What's Inside

This project is based on docker-compose. By default, the following containers are started: laravel-env (centos:7 based), mysql, nginx. Additional containers (phpmyadmin, mailhog) are externalized into docker-compose.utils.yml. The /var/www/laravel-boilerplate directory is the web root which is mapped to the nginx container. You can directly edit configuration files from within the repo as they are mapped to the correct locations in containers.
