A Slim Framework skeleton application for rapid development
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.
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.
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]
[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
templates/cacheare web writeable.
That's it! Now go build something cool.
- Fork the Slim Skeleton repository
- Create a new branch for each feature or improvement
- Send a pull request from each feature branch to the develop branch
It is very important to separate new features or improvements into separate feature branches, and to send a pull request for each branch. This allows us to review and pull in new features or improvements individually.
All pull requests must adhere to the PSR-2 standard.
