Starting your first app

Now that you've got Lando installed you should try a few easy examples before you get into it.

Hello World!

# Create a new directory for this example and enter it
mkdir hello && cd hello

# And add a nice homepage
echo "<h1>Lando says hellooo what have we here?</h1>" > index.html

# Initialize a basic LAMP stack using the cwd as the source
lando init \
  --source cwd \
  --recipe lamp \
  --webroot . \
  --name hello-lando

# Check out the Landofile it created for you
cat .lando.yml

# Start it up
lando start

# Check out the commands you can run
lando

# Visit the local site
open https://hello-lando.lndo.site

# Destroy the site
lando destroy -y

Vanilla Drupal 9

You can also pull in code from an external archive (or git repo/GitHub) to seed a new project.

# Create a new directory for this example and enter it
mkdir drupal9 && cd drupal9

# Initialize a new lando drupal using vanilla Drupal 9
lando init \
  --source remote \
  --remote-url https://www.drupal.org/download-latest/tar.gz \
  --remote-options="--strip-components 1" \
  --recipe drupal9 \
  --webroot . \
  --name hello-drupal9

# Start the site
lando start

# Install a site local drush
lando composer require drush/drush

# Install drupal
lando drush site:install --db-url=mysql://drupal9:drupal9@database/drupal9 -y

# Check out your new site!
