By default, each Lando MEAN recipe will also ship with helpful dev utilities.
This means you can use things like
node via Lando and avoid mucking up your actual computer trying to manage
php versions and tooling.
lando mongo Drop into the mongo shell lando node Runs node commands lando npm Runs npm commands lando yarn Runs yarn commands
# Install some things globally lando npm install -g gulp-cli@latest # Run yarn install lando yarn install # Drop into a mongo shell lando mongo # Check the node version lando node --version
You can also run
lando from inside your app directory for a complete list of commands. This is always advisable as your list of commands may not be 100% the same as above. For example, if you set
database: postgres you will get
lando psql instead of
Importing Your Database
NOTE THIS ONLY APPLIES FOR SQL DATABASES AND NOT MONGO
Once you've started up your MEAN site, you will need to pull in your database and files before you can really start to dev all the dev. Pulling your files is as easy as downloading an archive and extracting it to the correct location. Importing a database can be done using our helpful
lando db-import command.
# Grab your database dump curl -fsSL -o database.sql.gz "https://url.to.my.db/database.sql.gz" # Import the database # NOTE: db-import can handle uncompressed, gzipped or zipped files # Due to restrictions in how Docker handles file sharing your database # dump MUST exist somewhere inside of your app directory. lando db-import database.sql.gz

db-import command over here.
