The best way to get started with Slick framework is using composer. We have created a template that get you with a base web application files and directory structure. To start a project using our web application template run

$ composer create-project slick/webapp <your-app-name>

If you wat to use a Slick module in your existing project just add the corespondent module name your project composer.json file. Lets have an example. Adding the slick/template Slick module to your project is as simple as adding the following line to your project’s composer.json file:

    "require": {
        "slick/template": "1.0.*@dev",

Then you need to run:

$ composer update

to be able to add the specified library to your vendor directory.
