The DDEV Explained Book Now Includes WordPress
“Local Web Development With DDEV Explained” shows you how to do local development in a way that matches modern development workflows.
When the book launched, it originally focused on Drupal 8. Today, with version 2.0, of the book, we’ve updated the book and included two new chapters on working with WordPress.
In this book, Mike Anello recommends replacing WAMP, MAMP and similar tools with DDev-Local, a Docker-based system.
DDEV-Local is an open-source local development environment for PHP-based projects. It provides a robust and flexible setup for platforms such as Drupal, WordPress, and TYPO3.
DDEV-Local uses Docker, a tool that allows developers to package up services in containers. The power behind Docker is that it provides a hardware-independent way of running containers, so that you can run any Docker container on any hardware that supports Docker.
In a typical DDEV-Local scenario, there is a web server container, a database server container, and a database administration container. DDEV-Local provides you with reliable Docker containers and removes some of Docker’s complexities. All-in-all, DDEV-Local provides an easy-to-use, flexible, and powerful local development environment.
