Laravel Homestead adds MariaDB Support
Published on by Eric L. Barnes
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.
