PHP 5.6 Vagrant Box for Legacy Projects

The maintainer of the popular Laravel Homestead box has a new project that is a paid-for PHP 5.6 Vagrant box which is perfect for legacy apps.

I’ve never one to say there shouldn’t be any legacy projects. I’m sure plenty of developers who would like to change the definition of a legacy project to suit this weeks best practices but in all honestly there are legacy applications out there generating hundreds and thousands of pounds for many companies. That in itself should be respected.

Legacy has become a dirty word somehow. It shouldn’t be. We all have legacy projects to work on.

Joe’s latest project - Homestead Fifty Six has various price points to support the project. Joe has structured these in a very fair manner I believe. For a project which will clearly save developers a lot of time (I’ve recently had to create two Vagrant PHP5.6 boxes and each easily took over a few hours).
