In the first word, Laragon is a GUI desktop application which provides developers with a working environment like XAMPP, HOMESTEAD and etc.

As a developer, I am going to make my coding environment comfortable. I want to focus my codes during coding. Getting Stuck to other works really is time wasting (for example building local web server, working with a non-productive terminal). When I got familiarity with laragon I really become a more productively developer :).

Laragon has a little problem that it only works natively on Windows OS.

I don't want to extend this topic more. See laragon’s benefits as below.
