We need composer to install laravel and manage its dependencies , composer can be installed by following the steps in getcomposer.org website . Its better if composer is installed globally instead of locally.
After installing composer , laravel can be installed by running the following command in terminal ,
composer global require “laravel/installer=~1.1”
After successful installation of laravel , in the terminal run laravel command , it shows all the avaliable comands , options , usage and verion of the laravel installer.
