A website skeleton for Kiwa.
Kiwa Website Skeleton
The skeleton for creating a website with Kiwa.
This skeleton is made for the use with Composer. Be sure to get it at first.
Use your CLI and Composer to create a new website by running
$ composer create-project kiwa/website-skeleton my-project. Change
my-projectby your needs.
Move to your project directory, for example by running
$ cd my-project.
Create your code repository, for example by running
$ git init.
By running the installation a lot of basic files will be created, for example an
assetsfolder for all your asset files. Those files can be committed to your repository.
Install all dependencies by running
$ composer installand
$ yarn install. If you're using NPM instead of Yarn or don't have those scripts installed globally, those commands may differ in your system.
Creating the website
Everything you want to do can be done with the help of the Kiwa Console, which is our own command line tool and that is stored in the
bin folder. It will help creating pages and more. Run
$ php bin/console to get more information.
Running the website
To access the website from public, point your domain to the
public folder so the
index.php inside will be used.
To run the website in a local environment, run
$ php bin/console server:start and open the URL that it tells in your browser. This will be mostly http://127.0.0.1:8000.
In case you don't want to use the Kiwa Console, you can also run a local PHP server by your own:
$ php -S 127.0.0.1:8000 public/index.php.
The documentation about how to use Kiwa can be found under www.kiwa.io/documentation.html.
