How to start building your own app?

To start an app simply copy "my_app" folder wherever you want to starting to build your brand new application. Then point the require to Loader in index.php

// Index.php
use coldstarstudios\framework\Controller;

// Here you have to point to the Autoloader.php the base of any sPHPf based APP
require '../sPHPf/Autoloader.php';

// Load a new instance of the application and load the selected controller with selected action.
Application::start(new Controller('controller\mainController', 'index'));

What's next?

Example Controller

// Remember to add the namespace when you create a new controller
namespace controller;

class mainController extends \Application {

    function index() {
        // This is how you set up vars to use inside your view.
        $this->data['example_var'] = \ExampleVendor\ExampleVendor::EXAMPLE_CONST;
        return new \coldstarstudios\framework\Response('web/index.twig', $this->data);

{% extends 'templates/base.twig' %}

{% block body %}
    <b>This is a Simple PHP Framework Application</b><br/>
    <a href="{{path}}main/index">Main page</a><br/>
