New version of Local WordPress development platform

The latest release is faster, more reliable, and supports Linux!

Local has become the number one WordPress development app in the world, supporting hundreds of thousands of developers. But…we’ve also heard many of our users experience erratic reliability (or that they can’t install Local altogether).

To chart a more reliable and powerful path forward, we’ve reimagined Local’s core architecture and moved away from virtualization in favour of native, system-level software to run WordPress locally.

In other words…it just works, and it’s faster than ever before. Here’s a preview of what you can expect with the latest release, Local “Lightning!”

  • 5-minute install
  • Open Local instantly
  • Available on Mac, Windows, and Linux
  • Fewer bugs, more reliability!
