Silex Starter Pack

The Silex Starter Pack is a simple bootstrap to help you begin your project with Silex. It includes:

  • An admin login system and control panel (styled mostly using Bootstrap)
  • A very basic user authentication system allowing for sign up/log in/log out with users coming from a database.
  • A console application allowing quick and easy development of console tasks

Installation

  • Create your project by typing the following command:
    composer create-project deanc/silex-starter-pack your-project-name dev-master
  • Decide on your any namespaces you are going to want to autoload and create the relevent directory structure under the src directory.
  • Open up composer.json and adjust the autoload section to load your new namespace. An example would be:
    ,"autoload": {
        "psr-0": {
            "DC\\SilexStarterPack": "src/"
            ,"YourName\\SomeProjectName" : "src/"
        }
    }
  • Copy app/config.default.php to a new file in the same directory called app/config.php and fill in the configuration values.
  • Run composer install
  • Set up your vhost:

Build in PHP web-server quick start instructions:

Navigate into the web directory and type php -S 127.0.0.1:8080

####Apache instructions:

<VirtualHost *:80>
     ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host2.example.com
     DocumentRoot "/Users/deanclatworthy/Projects/silex-starter-pack/web"
     <Directory "/Users/deanclatworthy/Projects/silex-starter-pack/web">
        Options -Indexes FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride All
        <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
            RewriteEngine On
            RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
            RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php [QSA,L]
        </IfModule>
    </Directory>
     ServerName ssp.dev
     ErrorLog "/private/var/log/apache2/silex-starter-pack.dev-error_log"
     CustomLog "/private/var/log/apache2/silex-starter-pack.dev-access_log" common
</VirtualHost>

(Nginx instructions coming soon...)

  • Go to http://ssp.dev or whatever you set up your vhost as and your basic application should be loaded.

Admin Control Panel

The admin control panel is located at http://ssp.dev/a/. If you want to add any new admin controllers add them under your own namespace such as YourName\Project\Controller\Admin\Project.php for a Project admin controller. Then mount it in index.php like so:

$app->mount('/a', new YourName\Project\Controller\Admin\Project());

Bonus stuff

Twilio

If you want to use Twilio require their library:

composer require twilio/sdk

Enable the utility in app/config.php:

define('TWILIO_ENABLED', true);

Use it as follows:

$app['twilo']->send($from, $to, $text);
