Ready to Rock the Web Dev World with HALT? 🚀

Step 1: Install Laravel

Before creating a Laravel project, you need to make sure that PHP and Composer are installed on your local machine. You will also need to install Node and NPM.

After installing PHP and Composer, you can create a new Laravel project using Composer's create-project command:

$ composer create-project laravel/laravel example-halt-app
$ cd example-halt-app

Step 2: Install HTMX, Alpine.js & Tailwind CSS

To install HTMX, Alpine.js, Tailwind CSS and its peer dependencies, run the following command:

$ npm install -D htmx.org alpinejs tailwindcss postcss autoprefixer

Step 3: Generate Tailwind CSS and PostCSS config files

Run the init command to create both tailwind.config.js and postcss.config.js:

$ npx tailwindcss init -p

Step 4: Configure your template paths

In the tailwind.config.js file, add the paths to all your template files.

/** @type {import('tailwindcss').Config} */
module.exports = {
  content: [
  theme: {
  extend: {},
  plugins: [],

Step 5: Add the Tailwind directives to your CSS

In your ./resources/css/app.css file, add the @tailwind directives for each of Tailwind's layers.

@tailwind base;
@tailwind components;
@tailwind utilities;

Step 6: Initialize HTMX and Alpine.js

Import Alpine.js and Htmx into your bundle, then initialize them in ./resources/js/app.js.

import Alpine from 'alpinejs'
import Htmx from 'htmx.org'

window.Alpine = Alpine
window.Htmx = Htmx


Step 7: Start your build process

Use npm run dev to run your build process.

$ npm run dev

Step 8: Start using HALT in your project

Make sure your compiled CSS and JS are included in the .

<!doctype html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <h1 class="text-3xl font-bold underline">
        Hello world!

Step 9: Start development server

After you have created the project and installed all the libraries, use Laravel's Artisan CLI serve command to start local development:

$ php artisan serve

Once you have started the Artisan development server, your application will be available at http://localhost:8000.

You're ready to go! 🚀
