A lightweight PHP MVC framework for rapid API development.
Leaf API is a lightweight but feature-rich MVC framework built on top of leaf php. It provides everything you need to build APIs with Leaf, faster and simpler than ever before.
You can install Leaf API v3 with the Leaf CLI
leaf create <project-name> --api
Or for a more personalized installation, you can add
--custom to the command
leaf create <project-name> --api --custom
You can also use Composer if you don't want to use the Leaf CLI, although we recommend using the CLI for a better experience:
composer create-project leafs/api <project-name>
<project-name> is the name of the project you want to create, and that will be your folder name. You can also use
. to install in the current directory.
```bash C:. ├───app │ ├───console │ ├───controllers │ ├───database │ │ ├───factories │ │ ├───migrations │ │ ├───schema │ │ └───seeds │ ├───helpers │ ├───models │ ├───routes │ └───views ├───config ├───lib ├───public │ └───assets ├───storage │ ├───app │ │ └───public │ ├───framework │ │ └───views │ └───logs └───vendor
This directory structure is a blend of Ruby on Rails and Laravel
To run your Leaf API application, use
php leaf serve
Leaf API has a very easy to understand documentation which contains information on all operations in Leaf API.
Since Leaf API runs on Leaf, you should check out the Leaf PHP Framework documentation here.
