Minimalist Wolfi-based Laravel images for developing, building, and running Laravel applications.

Download this Image

The image is available on cgr.dev:

docker pull cgr.dev/chainguard/laravel:latest

Obtaining Environment Information

Based on the cgr.dev/chainguard/php:latest-fpm image, our Laravel images include extensions required by Laravel and a dedicated laravel user with uid 1000, reserved for development and build. To check the PHP version running on the latest variant, you can run:

docker run --rm --entrypoint php cgr.dev/chainguard/laravel:latest --version

You should get output similar to this:

PHP 8.2.17 (cli) (built: Mar 12 2024 17:12:35) (NTS)
Copyright (c) The PHP Group
Zend Engine v4.2.17, Copyright (c) Zend Technologies

To obtain information about available modules, you can run:

docker run --rm --entrypoint php cgr.dev/chainguard/laravel:latest -m

And this will give you the list of PHP modules currently enabled in the cgr.dev/chainguard/laravel image:

[PHP Modules]
Core
ctype
curl
date
dom
fileinfo
filter
hash
iconv
json
libxml
mbstring
mysqlnd
openssl
pcre
PDO
pdo_mysql
pdo_sqlite
Phar
random
readline
Reflection
session
SimpleXML
sodium
SPL
sqlite3
standard
tokenizer
xml
zlib

To obtain detailed information about the environment, you can run a php --info command on any of the image tags and use grep to look for a specific module or extension.

For instance, to check for curl settings, you can run:

docker run --rm --entrypoint php cgr.dev/chainguard/laravel:latest --info | grep curl

Using the latest-dev image as Development Environment for Laravel Applications

You can use the latest-dev variant of the Laravel image to create and develop Laravel applications without having to install PHP on your host machine.

To create a new Laravel application from your host environment and get access to source files for development, you can run the laravel-dev image using a shared volume:

docker run --rm -v ${PWD}:/work --entrypoint composer --user laravel \
    cgr.dev/chainguard/laravel:latest-dev \
    create-project laravel/laravel demo-laravel --working-dir=/work

The laravel user has uid 1000, which will typically match a non-root system user on Linux systems. This allows for a frictionless development environment using shared volumes. If you run into permission issues, it might be the case that your user has a different UID, and that won't match the ownership of files generated inside the container and shared through volumes. If that happens, you should use the root container user instead, and fix file permissions accordingly.

In a similar way, you can use the built-in Laravel server to preview the application on your host browser. You'll need a port redirect for that:

docker run -p 8000:8000 --rm -it -v ${PWD}:/work --entrypoint /work/demo-laravel/artisan --user laravel cgr.dev/chainguard/laravel:latest-dev serve --host=0.0.0.0

You can access the application at http://localhost:8000 while the command runs.

Example Docker Compose Setup

A good way to test your setup locally is by using Docker Compose. The following docker-compose.yaml file demonstrates how to create a web server environment using the Nginx Chainguard Image :

version: "3.7"
services:
  app:
    image: cgr.dev/chainguard/laravel:latest-dev
    restart: unless-stopped
    working_dir: /app
    volumes:
      - ./app:/app
    networks:
      - wolfi

  nginx:
    image: cgr.dev/chainguard/nginx
    restart: unless-stopped
    ports:
      - 8000:8080
    volumes:
      - ./app:/app
      - ./nginx.conf:/etc/nginx/nginx.conf
    networks:
      - wolfi

  mariadb:
    image: cgr.dev/chainguard/mariadb
    restart: unless-stopped
    environment:
      MARIADB_ALLOW_EMPTY_ROOT_PASSWORD: 1
      MARIADB_USER: laravel
      MARIADB_PASSWORD: password
      MARIADB_DATABASE: php-test
    ports:
      - 3306:3306
    networks:
      - wolfi

networks:
  wolfi:
    driver: bridge

You'll notice the Nginx service has a volume share to set up a custom config file. The following nginx.conf file sets up Nginx to serve pages from a /app/public folder and redirects requests to .php files to the app service on port 9000.

events {
  worker_connections  1024;
}

http {
    server {
        listen 80;
        index index.php index.html;
        root /app/public;
        location ~ \.php$ {
            try_files $uri =404;
            fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
            fastcgi_pass app:9000;
            fastcgi_index index.php;
            include fastcgi_params;
            fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
            fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_path_info;
        }
        location / {
            try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;
            gzip_static on;
        }
    }
}

You can get the environment up with:

docker composer up

This will give you a full LEMP experience in a persistent environment including a MariaDB database (drop-in replacement for MySQL).
