Use this skeleton application for the slim 3 micro-framework with some pre configured dependencies and structures:

If you don't need all of this, you should just use slimphp/Slim-Skeleton which I forked and extended with this features.


  • PHP >= 7.0
  • Composer
  • NodeJS (for Webpack)

Node, Javascript and webpack libraries support

Javascript and client



Install the Application

Run this command from the directory in which you want to install your new Slim Framework application.

    composer create-project creativados/slim-skeleton [my-app-name]

Replace [my-app-name] with the desired directory name for your new application. You'll want to:

  • Point your virtual host document root to your new application's public/ directory.
  • Ensure storage/ is web writeable.
  • create a copy ".env" of the file ".env.example" an set up your configuration

Install NodeJS dependencies:

npm install


for development you can use the PHP built-in webserver:

    php cli app:dev

Generate favicon for resources/assets/img/logo.png:

    npm run favicon

And let webpack bundle your assets live:

    npm run watch

On Production

Make sure to bundle your assets after clone/update your assets on production by running:

    npm run build
