How to install Pomm ?

The easy way: composer

Using composer installer and autoloader is probably the easiest way to install Pomm and get it running. What you need is just a composer.json file in the root directory of your project:

"require": {
    "pomm/pomm": "master-dev"

Invoking composer.phar will automagically download Pomm, install it in a vendor directory and set up the according autoloader.

Using Pomm with a PHP framework

With Silex, it is possible to bootstrap a kitchen sink using this gist <>, in an empty directory just issue the command:

wget -O - '' | bash

And follow the instructions.
