I know there's a FR for Laravel support, but truthfully I just wish Local made less assumptions about every site being a WordPress site in general. I've used Local for years now, and it seems like it's getting progressively more integrated with WordPress. In a way, that's of course very cool, but the way it's being done is that the integrations are core to Local rather than extendable. I'm progressively having more and more things stop working (just found I can't switch to Apache) for non-WP sites. It throws some error regarding some missing WP thing and crashes.
Local is a great tool for running an HTTP server. It would be so awesome if the product did that really well and then extended itself into directions like WordPress and Laravel, rather than marrying itself completely to a single framework.
