Laravel Forge Menubar for macOS and iOS

Laravel Forge is a tool for deploying and configuring web applications. I use Forge on a daily basis for out projects at Moln8. Forge is a great service and tool for a reasonable price. The makers of the Laravel framework developed it, but you can use it to automate the deployment of any web application that uses a PHP server.

Creating a fully functioning web server typically involves installing multiple components such as NGINX, MySQL, and PHP. Laravel Forge automates all of the necessary installation and configuration steps, allowing you to get your website up and running quickly.

To make your life even easier, I have since 2016 developed and maintained F-Bar, which is essentially an app to manage your Laravel Forge provisioned servers from your mac’s menubar. This summer, I have also released F-Bar for iOS.
