This is a simple, skeleton application using the ZF2 MVC layer and module systems. This application is meant to be used as a starting place for those looking to get their feet wet with ZF2.


Using Composer (recommended)

The recommended way to get a working copy of this project is to clone the repository and use composer to install dependencies using the create-project command:

curl -s | php --
php composer.phar create-project neuweb/zendskeletonapplication /path/to/your/project

Alternately, clone the repository and manually invoke composer using the shipped composer.phar:

cd my/project/dir
git clone git://
cd ZendSkeletonBootstrap
php composer.phar self-update
php composer.phar install

(The self-update directive is to ensure you have an up-to-date composer.phar available.)

Another alternative for downloading the project is to grab it via curl, and then pass it to tar:

cd my/project/dir
curl -#L | tar xz --strip-components=1

You would then invoke composer to install dependencies per the previous example.

Using Git submodules

Alternatively, you can install using native git submodules:

git clone git:// --recursive

Virtual Host

Afterwards, set up a virtual host to point to the public/ directory of the project and you should be ready to go!

Alternatively — if you are using PHP 5.4 or above — you may start the internal PHP cli-server in the public directory:

cd public
php -S index.php

This will start the cli-server on port 8080, and bind it to all network interfaces.
