The option recommended and used in this book in the development of applications in MacOS is Laravel Herd, which is the equivalent of Laragon but for MacOS, with Laravel Herd we have available an environment in which to develop in Laravel and we can install several versions of dependencies such as a database or PHP; the official page is this:

https://herd.laravel.com/

Once installed, we will have a panel like the following:

Laravel Herd

Now, we are going to install an additional module to manage the databases:

https://dbngin.com/

Once installed, we will have a window like the following:

Dbngin, desktop window
Dbngin, desktop window

Also enabled to start when you log in and to be attached to the bar:

Dbngin, window bar
Dbngin, window bar

From the previous windows, we can click on the + icon and create a database:

Create a database
Create a database

In which, we only have to enter the name of the database and the service you want to use, in this course, we will use MySQL.

Once the database is created, we have direct access to the manager that we have installed, in this example, Table Plus.
