ImageMagick on PHP 8

PHP 8 now supports ImageMagick. Is there a way for me to update my PHP 8 installation so that it includes it?

Or will the ImageMagick compatible version of PHP 8 come baked into Local soon?

Hey @ddegner – Welcome to the Local Community Forums, and thanks for bringing this up!

Local doesn’t have an easy way to update the PHP service, but we do have some work lined up to improve our Lightning Services (the various server processes like PHP,MySQL,Nginx/Apache) and I’ve made a note to include adding Imagick with the PHP 8 work.

I don’t have an exact ETA for when this will be release, but in order to streamline communication, I’ve moved this topic to our “Feature Requests” category so that it can be up-voted to help determine the priority for getting this done!
