Leaf MVC is a lightweight but feature-rich MVC framework built on top of leaf php. It provides a simple and opinionated structure with a tons of functionality built in.

📦 Installation

You can install Leaf MVC v3 with the Leaf CLI

leaf create <project-name> --mvc

Or for a more personalized installation, you can add --custom to the command

leaf create <project-name> --mvc --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/mvc <project-name>

Note that <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.
