A lightweight PHP Framework
To create a new modulusPHP application, we need to run the following command.
composer create-project modulusphp/modulusphp <app-name>
<app-name>is the name of your application. e.g.
I assume, you already have composer installed, if not. Check out this link https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-use-composer-on-ubuntu-16-04
# Application APP_NAME=modulusPHP APP_ENV=local APP_DEBUG=true APP_URL=http://localhost # Bugsnag BUGSNAG_API_KEY= # Database DB_CONNECTION=mysql DB_HOST=127.0.0.1 DB_PORT=3306 DB_DATABASE=modulusphp DB_USERNAME=root DB_PASSWORD=secret # Mail MAIL_USERNAMEfirstname.lastname@example.org MAIL_PASSWORD=secret MAIL_FROM_NAME=foo MAIL_HOST=smtp.domain.com MAIL_PORT=465 # or 587 MAIL_SMTP_SECURE=ssl # or tls
Make sure, you have set the "DB_DATABASE", "DB_USERNAME" and the "DB_PASSWORD".
Make sure you have nodejs and npm installed then install the dependencies using
But before running the
npm install command, you might want to change the current frontend framework. The default frontend framework is
react. You can easily change it by running
php craftsman frontend:switch.
If you don't have node.js, follow this tutorial: https://www.taniarascia.com/how-to-install-and-use-node-js-and-npm-mac-and-windows/
This part is optional (but recommended). The following command will create a couple of tables to get your application ready. (You will be able to edit these tables at a later stage if you want to make any changes).
php craftsman migrate all
This will create a users, password_resets, verified_users, magic_links and migrations table
Craftsman makes it easy to add testing (fake) data into your application database. You can do this by creating a new seed. You can run
php craftsman craft:seeder <name> --table="<table_name>" to create a new seed.
php craftsman craft:seeder users --table="users"
And you can run this seed, using the following command
php craftsman seed users --count=10
--count=<int> represents the number of rows, the seed will add.
Please note, your application already has the "users" seed.
Run the following command to boot up your Application.
php craftsman serve
8000 is already in use, just set your own port. e.g
php craftsman serve --port=8001
You can now visit your Application on
