I needed a forum for one of my apps and was really attracted to Flarum. I host my apps on Platform.sh and somebody pointed me to a recipe that creates a project and deploys Flarum on Platform.sh, that is pre-configured to work with Lando (a local dev tool).
The Deploy on Platform button at this repo does just that. Once the app is deployed you can quickly spin up a local dev environment (once the Platform.sh CLI and Lando is installed) by:
lando init --recipe platformsh --src cwd --platformsh-site "Platform Project Name"
lando ssh -c 'php deploy.php'
