CakePHP Application Skeleton
A skeleton for creating applications with CakePHP 3.x.
The framework source code can be found here: cakephp/cakephp.
- Download Composer or update
php composer.phar create-project --prefer-dist cakephp/app [app_name].
If Composer is installed globally, run
composer create-project --prefer-dist cakephp/app
In case you want to use a custom app dir name (e.g.
composer create-project --prefer-dist cakephp/app myapp
You can now either use your machine's webserver to view the default home page, or start up the built-in webserver with:
bin/cake server -p 8765
http://localhost:8765 to see the welcome page.
Since this skeleton is a starting point for your application and various files would have been modified as per your needs, there isn't a way to provide automated upgrades, so you have to do any updates manually.
Read and edit
config/app.php and setup the
'Datasources' and any other
configuration relevant for your application.
The app skeleton uses a subset of Foundation (v5) CSS framework by default. You can, however, replace it with any other library or custom styles.
