Migration to Windows

Posted 06 May 2020 - 04:59 PM

Hey guys! Just sold off my mid-15 Macbook Air in exchange for one of the new Galaxy Book S. 4G LTE, Snapdragon 8cx, yadda yadda. It runs Windows 10 on ARM, but most 64-bit x86 applications seem to function just fine on it. Pretty excited to make it my daily driver/programming machine.

For you guys who run Windows as your primary platform, what tech/software do you use to do web development? On Mac, I had a helpful tool called Laravel Valet that would use dnsmasq as a proxy for *.test domains, it would allow me to define folders as project folders to be served via Nginx through dnsmasq. It also installed PHP. This has been my main stack for a long time, and I'd like to keep it as similar as possible. As easy as possible!

Thanks in advance.

I use XAMPP for any php/mysql work.

IIS for ASP and .NET CORE work.

Mostly Visual Studios for the .NET, and Eclipse for php... though VS has been getting better on the PHP so I may just go for that.

I know about XAMPP but does it have a lighter weight Nginx version? And yeah, VS Code with specifically PHP Intelliphense is solid as hell

It's Apache. I don't deal in nginx, but I do see there's a docker container for it so sure.
