Customized Skeleton Application for ZF2

This package is not auto-updated.

Last update: 2021-09-18 00:10:26 UTC



This is a heavy assetic customized skeleton application. Includes most common things that I use, for a quicker start. It uses Bower to grab assets in public/vendor.

The assets installation is triggered for each composer install/update


PHP 7.0+ / Bower


php composer.phar create-project -sdev mpalourdio/mpa-zend-skeleton-heavy /path/to/project
