Use this skeleton application to quickly setup and start working on a new Slim Framework application. This application uses:

This skeleton application was built for Composer. This makes setting up a new Slim Framework application quick and easy.

Install Composer

If you have not installed Composer, do that now. I prefer to install Composer globally in /usr/local/bin, but you may also install Composer locally in your current working directory.


Install the Application

After you install Composer, run this command from the directory in which you want to install your new Slim Framework application.

php composer.phar create-project slim/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 logs/ and templates/cache are web writeable.

That's it! Now go build something cool.
