Seed-PHP Microframework

GitHub tag (latest by date)

The stupidly easy to learn and use PHP microframework!

A microframework is a term used to refer to minimalistic web application frameworks. It lacks most of the functionality which is common to expect in a full-fledged web application framework.

Seed-PHP is a microframework that offers you a really simple way to implement powerfull RESTfull APIs or even simple websites that could support pretty much all needed methods and responses in JSON or XML formats.

Check the complete documentation.

NOTE OF BREAKING CHANGES: The namespace was modified, so if you're updating from previous versions (prior to 1.0.0), you'll be required to update your code, replacing namespace from Seed\ to SeedPHP\. E.g:

# Deprecated
use Seed\App;
use Seed\Helper\Http;

# Correct
use SeedPHP\App;
use SeedPHP\Helper\Http;

$app = new App( ... );

Get started

Using composer it's really simple get started!

If you have a project on going with composer, use:

$ php composer require rogeriotaques/seed-php

or, to start a project from scratch, use:

$ php composer create-project rogeriotaques/seed-php

Your application should have a index.php which may looks like the following example. Or simply create a new index.php file as follows:

Example: (index.php)


// include composer autoloader
include __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

// initilise the Seed-PHP App class
$app = \SeedPHP\App::getInstance();

// Define a initial route
$app->route('GET /', function () {
  echo 'Hello Word!';

// Let's rock ...

If you have forked or cloned the repository from Github, then instead of include the 'autoload.php' from composer, include the package loader:

// include composer autoloader
// include __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

// include package loader
include __DIR__ . '/seed-php/loader.php';

Now, as a final step, we must create the .htaccess file (in the same folder of the index.php) which will contain the necessary settings for Apache properly use the mod_rewrite and route all the traffic thru our index.php.

Done! Now, do access your project on any browser. ;)
