Getting Started

Setup your custom website domain

Before we started, we need to setup Apache or Nginx to route every HTTP request into /public/ directory.

If you're using Windows, you can use Laragon to easily Switch Document Root that will automatically create new Apache VirtualHost and modify drivers\etc\hosts for you. So you can easily access your project with a custom domain.

This framework has a build-in server by calling

$ php scarlets serve (port) (address) (options)

Address: localhost, network, IPAddress
Options: --log, --verbose


Even the build-in server was blazingly fast, it still have some problem because it's running in a single thread for every request. So it's very recommended to setup your website using Nginx. But if you want to deploy a small server into Raspberry PI, Android, or other linux devices it may be better to use the build-in server.

You can also create your own command for your project


The user defined command are editable on /routes/console.php
