README

Build Status Slim is a PHP micro framework that helps you quickly write simple yet powerful web applications and APIs. Slim is easy to use for both beginners and professionals. Slim favors cleanliness over terseness and common cases over edge cases. Its interface is simple, intuitive, and extensively documented — both online and in the code itself. Thank you for choosing the Slim Framework for your next project. I think you're going to love it.

System Requirements

You need PHP >= 5.3.0. If you use encrypted cookies, you'll also need the mcrypt extension.

Hello World Tutorial

Instantiate a Slim application:

$app = new \Slim\App();

Define a HTTP GET route:

$app->get('/hello/:name', function ($name) {
    echo "Hello, $name";
});

Run the Slim application:

$app->run();

Setup your web server

Apache

Ensure the .htaccess and index.php files are in the same public-accessible directory. The .htaccess file should contain this code:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^ index.php [QSA,L]

Additionally, make sure your virtual host is configured with the AllowOverride option so that the .htaccess rewrite rules can be used:

AllowOverride All

Nginx

The nginx configuration file should contain this code (along with other settings you may need) in your location block:

try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;

This assumes that Slim's index.php is in the root folder of your project (www root).

HipHop Virtual Machine for PHP

Your HipHop Virtual Machine configuration file should contain this code (along with other settings you may need). Be sure you change the ServerRoot setting to point to your Slim app's document root directory.

Server {
    SourceRoot = /path/to/public/directory
}

ServerVariables {
    SCRIPT_NAME = /index.php
}

VirtualHost {
    * {
        Pattern = .*
        RewriteRules {
                * {
                        pattern = ^(.*)$
                        to = index.php/$1
                        qsa = true
                }
        }
    }
}
lighttpd

Your lighttpd configuration file should contain this code (along with other settings you may need). This code requires lighttpd >= 1.4.24.

url.rewrite-if-not-file = ("(.*)" => "/index.php/$0")

This assumes that Slim's index.php is in the root folder of your project (www root).

IIS

Ensure the Web.config and index.php files are in the same public-accessible directory. The Web.config file should contain this code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
    <system.webServer>
        <rewrite>
            <rules>
                <rule name="slim" patternSyntax="Wildcard">
                    <match url="*" />
                    <conditions>
                        <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true" />
                        <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true" />
                    </conditions>
                    <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php" />
                </rule>
            </rules>
        </rewrite>
    </system.webServer>
</configuration>
