    curl -s "" | php

  3. Install your dependencies.

    php composer.phar install

  4. Require Composer's autoloader by adding the following line to your code's bootstrap process.

    require '/path/to/vendor/autoload.php';

    require "vendor/autoload.php";
  2. Then user can manipulate Cinder by offer it a $options variable like this:

    $options = array(
          "table"   => "article",
          "primary" => "id",
          "field"   => "title",
          "value"   => "Hello Wrold"
    $article = Cinder\Cinder::getInstance($options);
