This slim3 boilerplate is made for everyone who would like to kickstart quickly a web project.

It is composed of many great packages such as:

  • Eloquent
  • Phinx
  • Monolog
  • Symfony Console
  • PHPMailer
  • Bootstrap 4
  • JQuery
  • leafo/scssphp
  • matthiasmullie/minify
  • vlucas/phpdotenv

Installation :

composer create-project tchauviere/slim3-kickstarter <app_name>
Will download the project and install everything for you, <app_name> is up to you.

Once packages are installed you will be prompted interactively for .env file creation and global environment setup (assets and DB).
If you do not want to be prompted just add --no-interaction to the composer create-project command up above

If you don't go with interactive mode (default), please mind to do the following once your .env file is ready:
php manager asset:compile
php manager migration:run up
php manager seed:run

Start your developpement :)

Guide :

Assets management

php manager assets:compile [<type>] [--watch]

Will take care of converting your scss files and minify them as well as js files from /assets directory to respectively /public/css and /public/js directories (no binary dependencies required).

  • [<type>] (optionnal): scss or js (Tell compilator to only take care of assets/js or assets/css
  • [--watch] (optionnal): Watch specified folder and auto-compile whenever a change is made

Migration creation

php manager migration:create <migration_name>

Will automatically creates a new migration file to /db/migrations from this file you can follow Phinx documentation to describe your migration.

  • <migration_name>: Camel case migration name (eg.: Users, UsersAndRoles, ...)

Migration running

php manager migration:run <direction> [-t <target>] [--dry-run]

Run your migrations UP or DOWN.

  • <direction> : up or down (Tell manager to execute migration or rollback them).
  • [-t <target>] (optionnal): <target> is the migration timestamp, if specified only this migration will be executed up or down.
  • [--dry-run] (optionnal): Tell migration to be tested but not persisted to DB.

Will automatically creates a new seed file to /db/seeds

  • <seed_name>: Camel case seed name (eg.: Users, Roles, ...)
