Using Composer:

$ composer require davidecesarano/embryo-framework 2.*


You may quickly test this using the built-in PHP server:

$ cd example
$ php -S localhost:8080

Going to http://localhost:8080 will now display "Hello World!".


The easiest way to start working with Embryo is to create a project using Embryo Skeleton Application as a base.
