🚗 Herbie

Herbie is a simple Flat-File CMS- und Blogsystem based on human readable text files.

About Herbie

With Herbie you are able to create a fully functional website or blog in a short amount of time and with little effort.

Herbie is based on proven libraries and concepts:

Herbie supports the following PHP Standards Recommendations:

  • PSR-2 Coding Style Guide
  • PSR-3 Logger Interface
  • PSR-4 Autoloading Standard
  • PSR-7 HTTP Message Interface
  • PSR-11 Container Interface
  • PSR-15 HTTP Handlers
  • PSR-16 Simple Cache
  • PSR-17 HTTP Factories


The easiest way to install Herbie is via Composer. To do this, execute the following statement in your terminal:

$ composer create-project getherbie/start-website:dev-master myproject

Composer creates your website in the myproject folder and installs all dependent libraries.

Go to the web directory and start PHPs built-in web server.

$ cd myproject/web
$ php -S localhost:8888 index.php

Now, open http://localhost:8888 in your browser. You should then see your first Herbie website.
