Beside controllers, an event dispatcher and a PHP two step view including view helpers and extensions PVC supports the following standards:

  • PSR-7 HTTP message implementation
  • PSR-15 HTTP server-side middlewares
  • PSR-17 HTTP factories implementation

Others are planned.


  • PHP 7.2
  • Composer
  • [Docker]



It is recommended to install PVC with Composer.

$ composer create-project tebe/pvc myproject


You can run the included example website with PHP's built-in server or Docker.

PHP built-in server

Run the following command in terminal to start localhost web server:

$ cd myproject/example/public
$ php -S localhost:9999

Start your web browser and open http://localhost:9999

Stop the server by entering CTRL+C.


Start the example application stack using Docker Compose:

$ cd myproject
$ docker-compose up -d

Start your web browser and open http://localhost:9090

Stop the application stack:

$ cd myproject
$ docker-compose down


The example is using some middlewares.

For the BasicAuth middleware the Login details are:

Username: user
Password: pass 

You're ready to go!
