  • have an idea for a project involving PHP
  • can't wait to get started
  • are tired of creating the basics from scratch all the time

and this project provides a template for creating a new PHP project faster.

Follow the example steps outlined below to get started!

1. Create a project

Let's assume we want to create the project in ~/Sites/foo/bar, so let's run

$ composer create-project localheinz/repository ~/Sites/foo/bar dev-php

to create a project based on the php branch.

For reference, see https://getcomposer.org/doc/03-cli.md#create-project.

Now, change into the newly created project so we can move forward:

$ cd ~/Sites/foo/bar

2. Modify starting point to your needs


After you have enabled the project on https://travis-ci.com, you probably want to

  • obtain and encrypt a GITHUB_TOKEN
  • obtain and encrypt a CODECLIMATE_REPO_TOKEN

to replace the existing, encrypted tokens (they will not work for you).

    - secure: "..."
    - secure: "..."

For encrypting tokens, you need travis-ci/travis.rb, see their installation instructions.


You probably want to adjust

  • name
  • description
  • author
  • license
  • autoload and autoload-dev configuration

For details see https://getcomposer.org/doc/04-schema.md.


You probably want to adjust

  • title
  • links for badges
  • etc.

3. Initialize git project


$ git init

to initialize a git project.


$ git add .

to add the existing files.


$ git commit -m 'Initial commit'

to create an initial commit.

4. Push to remote

Assuming you have created a corresponding GitHub project foo/bar, run

$ git remote add origin git@github.com:foo/bar.git

to add the remote.

Then run

$ git push origin

👍 Voilà, you have created your project - happy coding!
