Dries Vints has posted a step-by-step guide for the Laravel users out there showing how to set up Laravel Horizon using Forge and Envoyer for the server management. Laravel Horizon is a frontend/backend interface for Laravel that makes working with Redis easier.
I recently installed Horizon for Laravel.io and while it wasn’t that hard to install, I still had to figure some things out. Since this was the first time setting everything up I thought I’d write up the steps to take to get started with Horizon and set everything up with Forge and Envoyer.
[...] Remember that this isn’t a guide that dives deep into Horizon, just enough to get it up and running. If you want more info about Horizon’s internals I suggest this excellent post by Mohamed Said.
The tutorial then walks through the six step process to get the full deployment flow set up:
- Step 1: Installation
- Step 2: Configuration
- Step 3: Scheduler
- Step 4: Authentication
- Step 5: Envoyer
- Step 6: Forge
When the setup and configuration is complete the deployment you'll end up with a Horizon environment ready to use. The post ends with a reminder for queue management and where to change the setting to be applied in the next deploy.
