I’ve been looking at EE on and off and would like to know what people use for their local environment and deployment and what works best.
Currently, i’m using DDEV on WSL to install a local copy of craftCMS that then has a plugin which will push to production. I’m not very experienced but i’m not sure where to start with EE.
ExpressionEngine runs great on a lot of local environments (DDEV, Valet, MAMP, local LA/EMP stack, etc) https://docs.expressionengine.com/latest/installation/requirements.html#local-development ).
Personally, I run DDEV (as do a handful of other users). There are currently no add-ons that I know of which will automatically push a local environment into production. Most of us just have some sort of git workflow that’s connected to a deployment workflow (like Github actions, Beanstalk, etc).
You might be interested in our March EE Community Meetup. Randy Fay from DDEV will give a presentation on using DDEV with ExpressionEngine. You might get some answers to your question as well as learn some more in-depth features of DDEV.
