    Need Help Installing Laravel

    I'm trying real hard to learn to use Laravel Framework.
    But, I'm stuck right in the beginning. I'm just not understanding how to install the framework and include it.
    Plus there are no pre-installed copies for download. And, I googled a lot but could not find any project source made using laravel.

    Anyways, all I need is some help. Could someone provide me with an installed copy of laravel? Or help me install it?

    I installed composer for windows and I downloaded laravel from here : https://codeload.github.com/laravel/laravel/zip/master

    Now, I extracted the archive and navigated to the folder containing composer.json through command prompt.
    After that, I executed composer install command.

    This is the output that it shows :
    Warning: This development build of composer is over 30 days old. It is recommend
    ed to update it by running "C:\ProgramData\Composer\bin\composer.phar self-updat
    e" to get the latest version.

    And I dont think anything is getting installed.

    What do I do?

    The packagist.org try to redirect you from HTTP to HTTPS, so you have to download Laravel manualy from :


    Unzip the file and add this lines to " composer.json " before the last line that conten this symbol " } "
    "repositories": [
    "type": "composer",
    "url": "https://packagist.org"
    { "packagist": false }

    Now cd to your project folder and type :

    Composer install
