Install from Fano Command Line tool
$ fanocli --project-cgi=my-cool-app $ cd my-cool-app $ fanocli --mvc=Hello $ ./build.sh
Install from sample application
You can clone sample application repositories that is available in Fano Framework documentation as base application skeleton.
Install from scratch with Git submodule
If you decide to start from scratch,
$ mkdir my-cool-app $ cd my-cool-app $ git init $ git submodule add https://github.com/fanoframework/fano.git
This command will pull Fano Web Framework repository into
fano directory inside your
Install from scratch without Git submodule
git submodule requires you to have copy of Fano respository locked to specific commit in your application project directory structure. If you have multiple applications that uses Fano, each of them will have their own copy of Fano respository that may be locked to different commit version. Updating Fano repository in one application does not affect other applications. It is roughly similar to how Composer (PHP) or NPM (Node.js) works.
If you do not want this code duplication, you may clone Fano repository as usual in a directory, then, in your each application project configuration, you tell Free Pascal, directory where to search Fano units.
This approach, however, has disadvantage. When you update your Fano repository, all your applications that depends on Fano will be affected. If newer version of Fano repository introduces breaking changes, application that requires older version of Fano repository may fail.
Fano Framework follows Semantic Versioning 2.0.0.
Fano Framework is not yet supported on Windows.
