PHP 8 support
PHP 8 is scheduled to be released November 26, 2020. There is active work being done to ensure WordPress is compatible. It would be nice if we could test using Local.
Use TouchID for authentication if present
It would be great to add TouchID as an authentication method for those actions that require it, if it is available. Specifically, when asked for authentication for editing the hosts file.
Use site favicon in sidebar
The favicon could make sorting through sites much easier. Local could cache the current theme path and whether a favicon exists there or was set in WordPress.
Sync sites using Dropbox
It would be nice to move away from MAMP the only reason I still use it is because I can sync my sites between computers using dropbox with ease. This is a feature that has been ask for over and over again in the forums.
Set filepath for sites
Allowing a site to have a configurable DocumentRoot would be greatly beneficial, some times it makes sense to have the files, and Local, in two different locations. For example, you may have your projects in a dedicated projects folder, or maybe your setup uses a subfolder of the project as the public root (think the Bedrock framework for example).
