Lando Integration

By Jérôme Vieilledent, on Aug 10, 2021

Lando simplifies your local development dramatically. It is a development platform based on Docker, which abstracts all the fuzziness of a Docker / Docker-Compose setup, and thus reduces the DevOps hassle.

Blackfire now integrates seamlessly with Lando, thanks to the official plugin. Install it and profile your PHP or Python applications!

Here is an example of a Landofile, using the Symfony recipe and with Blackfire enabled:

name: my-symfony-app
recipe: symfony
  php: '8.0'
  via: nginx
  webroot: public

  # Declaring the blackfire service, containing the agent
    type: blackfire
    # appserver is the default name for the application container
    # It may differ depending on the recipe (e.g. for platformsh, it is "app")
    app_service: appserver
    server_id: <BLACKFIRE_SERVER_ID>
    server_token: <BLACKFIRE_SERVER_TOKEN>
    client_id: <BLACKFIRE_CLIENT_ID>
    client_token: <BLACKFIRE_CLIENT_TOKEN>

Using Blackfire Tools

By declaring the use of Blackfire in your Landofile, the Blackfire Probe (for PHP apps), CLI command, and Player are getting installed into your application container. As such, you may use them seamlessly to, e.g., profile CLI commands or run Player scenarios.

You may also directly expose these tools as a Lando tooling command:

# .lando.yml
    service: appserver

    service: appserver

When using this snippet, you will be able to run the commands within your application container by prefixing them with the lando command:

lando blackfire version
lando blackfire-player run .blackfire.yaml
