Laravel Homestead adds MariaDB Support

News

February 20th, 2016

On Tuesday, Laravel Homestead announced support for MariaDB with the v3.0.2 release. MariaDB is an open source alternative to MySQL and created by the original MySQL developers.

It is designed to be a drop-in replacement and includes many features over MySQL. This means your code base doesn’t need to change, and tools like Sequel Pro can still be used even though it’s not officially supported.
