Rocketeer on Laravel 5

Using Rocketeer to deploy code with Laravel 4.2 is nice and easy, using the standard Rocketeer library in Laravel’s composer file. Rocketeer doesn’t play so well with Laravel 5, and so we have to approach the install from a different direction.

The solution here is to use composer to install Rocketeer globally.

composer global require anahkiasen/rocketeer

Config files can then be found in the .rocketeer folder, you can also setup your environment using the ignite command

rocketeer ignite

Then, to deploy your code you can use:

rocketeer deploy



If this method doesn’t work, you can download the file manually

chmod +x rocketeer.phar
sudo mv rocketeer.phar /usr/local/bin/rocketeer
