Leaf 3

Latest Stable Version Total Downloads License



Leaf is a PHP framework that helps you create clean, simple but powerful web apps and APIs quickly and easily. Leaf introduces a cleaner and much simpler structure to the PHP language while maintaining it's flexibility. With a simple structure and a shallow learning curve, it's an excellent way to rapidly build powerful and high performant web apps and APIs.

Leaf 3 brings a much cleaner, faster and simpler workflow to your apps. Powered by an ecosystem of powerful modules with zero setup and it's ease of use, Leaf now allows you to tackle complexities no matter the scale.

📦 Installation

Install Leaf 3:

You can create a Leaf 3 app with the Leaf CLI

leaf create <project-name> --v3 --basic

<project-name> is your project name

You can also use Composer to install Leaf 3 in your project quickly.

composer require leafs/leaf

Install Leaf 2:

Since leaf 3 is still in beta, you might want to install the stable leaf 2 instead. You can do this with Leaf CLI or composer.

leaf create <project-name> --basic --v2

Or with composer

composer require leafs/leaf v2.6

🗂 Basic Usage

This is a simple demonstration of Leaf's simplicity. After installing Leaf, create an index.php file.

<?php

require __DIR__ . "/vendor/autoload.php";

app()->get("/", function () {
  response()->json([
    "message" => "Welcome!"
  ]);
});

app()->run();

If you use the Leaf CLI, this is already done for you 🚀.

You may quickly test this using the built-in PHP server:

php -S localhost:8000

Or with the Leaf CLI:

leaf serve
