ZendSkeletonApplication

Introduction

This is a simple, skeleton application using the ZF2 MVC layer and module systems. This application is meant to be used as a starting place for those looking to get their feet wet with ZF2.

Installation

The easiest way to get a working copy of this project is to do a recursive clone:

git clone --recursive git://github.com/zendframework/ZendSkeletonApplication.git

After the clone is complete, set up a virtual host to point to the public/ directory of the project and you should be ready to go!

If you're wondering what the --recursive flag is, keep reading:

Git Submodules

This project makes use of Git submodules. Utilizing Git submodules allows us to reference an exact commit in the upstream zendframework/zf2 repository and ensure that those who have cloned the project have that same commit checked out. This provides several benefits:

  • Developers do not have to worry about which commit of the zf2 project to have checked out for this project to work.
  • No additional steps to "install" Zend Framework are needed; it "just works" after a cloning the project.

There are a couple of mild caveats to be aware of:

  • Be sure to always run git submodule update after pulling, as merge/rebase does not automatically update the checked out commit in submodules if it has been changed.
  • The initial clone will be a bit slower, due to it having to pull down a separate copy of ZF2 from what you already have.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
