Andrew Welch, Patrick Harrington, Jonathan Melville
On this episode, we have Jason McCallister and Brad Bell from Pixel & Tonic on to talk about their new Craft Nitro product for local PHP development.
Nitro is a lightweight local dev environment that leverages Canonical’s Multipass technology that gives you the benefits you want from a VM, but without the heaviness you don’t.
We talk about how Jason spearheaded the development of Craft Nitro, to make it into something that has strikes a balance between zero config and flexibility.
Craft Nitro was designed for Craft CMS projects, but provides a great local dev experience for anything that needs a PHP stack, such as Laravel.
