Install via Composer

Create a file called composer.json in your project directory and put the following into it:

    "require": {
        "flamecore/webtools": "2.0.*"

Install Composer if you don't already have it present on your system:

$ curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php

Use Composer to download the vendor libraries and generate the vendor/autoload.php file:

$ php composer.phar install

Include the vendor autoloader and use the classes:

namespace Acme\MyApplication;

use FlameCore\Webtools\HttpClient;
use FlameCore\Webtools\HtmlExplorer;

require_once 'vendor/autoload.php';
