README

Use this skeleton application to quickly setup and start working on a new Slim Framework application. This application uses the latest Slim and Slim-Views repositories. It also uses Sensio Labs' Twig template library.

This skeleton application was built for Composer. This makes setting up a new Slim Framework application quick and easy.

Install Composer

If you have not installed Composer, do that now. I prefer to install Composer globally in /usr/local/bin, but you may also install Composer locally in your current working directory. For this tutorial, I assume you have installed Composer locally.

http://getcomposer.org/doc/00-intro.md#installation

Install the Application

After you install Composer, run this command from the directory in which you want to install your new Slim Framework application.

php composer.phar create-project slim/slim-skeleton [my-app-name]

Replace [my-app-name] with the desired directory name for your new application. You'll want to:

  • Point your virtual host document root to your new application's public/ directory.
  • Ensure logs/ and templates/cache are web writeable.

That's it! Now go build something cool.
