Cubex Project Skeleton
Composer is a dependency management library for PHP, which you can use to download the Cubex Framework, and example project.
Start by downloading Composer onto your computer.
Once composer is installed, to clone the base cubex project, you simply need to run
composer create-project cubex/skeleton myproject
replacing myproject with the name of the project folder you wish to work with.
There are various ways in which you can get your cubex project running on a web server.
- Virtual Host
- Raw PHP
- PHP Development Server
Each environment requires you setup the Cubex Environmental variable, which is CUBEX_ENV, with the exception of the //PHP Development Web Server// which will apply "development" as default environment.
Configurations for the various options can be found below. Once you have your environment setup, you should be able to navigate to your configured path, and see the sample project.
<VirtualHost *:80> SetEnv CUBEX_ENV development DocumentRoot "project_path/public" ServerName cubex.local ServerAlias www.cubex.local ErrorLog "logs/cubex-error.log" CustomLog "logs/cubex-access.log" common RewriteEngine on RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php [L,QSA] </VirtualHost>
SETENV CUBEX_ENV development RewriteEngine on RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php [L,QSA]
Within public/index.php before initiating cubex, you can put the environment directly into php with
Running the following command within the root of your project will allow you to access this project with http://localhost:8080
php -S 0.0.0.0:8080 public/index.php
