Build Status Total Downloads

A skeleton for creating applications with CakePHP 4.x.

The framework source code can be found here: cakephp/cakephp.

Installation

  1. Download Composer or update composer self-update.
  2. Run php composer.phar create-project --prefer-dist 3xw/cakephp-app [app_name].

If Composer is installed globally, run

composer create-project --prefer-dist 3xw/cakephp-app mysite

In case you want to use a custom app dir name (e.g. /myapp/):

composer create-project --prefer-dist cakephp/app myapp

You can now either use your machine's webserver to view the default home page, or start up the built-in webserver with:

bin/cake server -p 8765

Then visit http://localhost:8765 to see the welcome page.

Update

Since this skeleton is a starting point for your application and various files would have been modified as per your needs, there isn't a way to provide automated upgrades, so you have to do any updates manually.

Configuration

Read and edit config/app.php and setup the 'Datasources' and any other configuration relevant for your application.

Layout

The app skeleton uses a subset of Foundation (v5) CSS framework by default. You can, however, replace it with any other library or custom styles.
