Upfor Framework

Upfor is a simple, extensible framework for PHP. Upfor can help you quickly build simple yet powerful web applications.


1. Download the files

If you’re using Composer, you can run the following command:

composer require upfor/upforphp

OR you can download them directly and extract them to your web directory.

2. Configure webserver

PHP built-in server

php -S -t ./public

Apache configuration

Make sure your Apache virtual host is configured with the AllowOverride option. Ensure your .htaccess file and contain this code:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^ index.php [QSA,L]

Nginx configuration

For Nginx, add the following to your server declaration:

location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php$is_args$args;

3. Create index.php file

First, include the autoloader and register a namespace.

define("ROOT", dirname(realpath(__DIR__)));
require ROOT . '/src/Autoloader.php';
$autoloader = new \Upfor\Autoloader();
$autoloader->addNamespace('Upfor\\', ROOT . '/src/');

If you’re using Composer, run the autoloader instead.

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

Create and configure app.

$app = new \Upfor\App();

Define the application routes.

$route = $app->get('/', function () {
    echo 'Hello World!';

Finaly, run the application.


If you are not using the Composer, you must manually require the helpers: require ROOT . '/src/Helper/helpers.php';


Upfor requires PHP 5.4.0 or greater.


Upfor Framework is released under the MIT license.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
