Getting league\glide installed on Laravel 8 / PHP 8.0.3

Written by James McDonald

November 11, 2021

I started a project using the sample inertia app Ping CRM and then upgraded to use the latest laravel and sail docker environment.

Laravel version

php artisan -V           
Laravel Framework 8.70.2

When I tried to install glide with just the following it tries to install the latest (v2.1.0) but fails

composer require league/glide

But this didn’t work so I tried the following

composer require league/glide-laravel

and it installed. But it downgraded glide … but worked.
