I just had a training where quite a few people were using standard “MAMP” stacks for development. As they had various issues, I decided to install one myself and try it out for a longer amount of time. Personally, I was using Bitnami MAMP stack.
Turned out that the experience was quite frustrating Actually Bitnami MAMP is a little weirdly configured; and after a few hours on my flight back I was able to figure out what actually was going wrong.
I just hacked together a first patch which improves the situation for the Bitnami MAMP stack tremendously, see https://jira.typo3.org/browse/FLOW-320 for the Jira Ticket and https://review.typo3.org/#/c/40356/ for a patch.
Whenever I’ll be working on Neos (or integrating it) in the next days, I’ll try to not use the standard environment for me (because there, things usually work ) but rather test through these pre-configured PHP stacks to find these kinds of issues.
I hope this way we’ll also get closer to windows compatibility, which would be my mid-term goal (although on this one, I am not yet sure whether I find the full motivation to do it until the end )
