What is Nette Framework?

Nette Framework is a popular tool for PHP web development. It is designed to be the most usable and friendliest as possible. It focuses on security and performance and is definitely one of the safest PHP frameworks.

Nette Framework speaks your language and helps you to easily build better websites.


The best way to install Nette Framework is to download latest package from or create new project using Composer:

  1. Install Composer: (see

    curl -s | php
  2. Create new project via Composer:

    php composer.phar create-project nette/sandbox myApplication dev-master
    cd myApplication

Make directories temp and log writable. Navigate your browser to the www directory and you will see a welcome page. PHP 5.4 allows you run php -S localhost:8888 -t www to start the webserver and then visit http://localhost:8888 in your browser.

It is CRITICAL that file app/config/config.neon & whole app, log and temp directory are NOT accessible directly via a web browser! If you don't protect this directory from direct web access, anybody will be able to see your sensitive data. See security warning.
