Sample application skeleton using the ZF2 MVC layer

README.md

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

Using Composer (recommended)

The recommended way to get a working copy of this project is to clone the repository and use composer to install dependencies using the create-project command:

curl -s https://getcomposer.org/installer | php --
php composer.phar create-project -sdev --repository-url="https://packages.zendframework.com" zendframework/skeleton-application path/to/install

Alternately, clone the repository and manually invoke composer using the shipped composer.phar:

cd my/project/dir
git clone git://github.com/zendframework/ZendSkeletonApplication.git
cd ZendSkeletonApplication
php composer.phar self-update
php composer.phar install

(The self-update directive is to ensure you have an up-to-date composer.phar available.)

Another alternative for downloading the project is to grab it via curl, and then pass it to tar:

cd my/project/dir
curl -#L https://github.com/zendframework/ZendSkeletonApplication/tarball/master | tar xz --strip-components=1

You would then invoke composer to install dependencies per the previous example.

Using Git submodules

Alternatively, you can install using native git submodules:

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

Web Server Setup

PHP CLI Server

The simplest way to get started if you are using PHP 5.4 or above is to start the internal PHP cli-server in the root directory:

php -S 0.0.0.0:8080 -t public/ public/index.php

This will start the cli-server on port 8080, and bind it to all network interfaces.

**Note: ** The built-in CLI server is for development only.

Apache Setup

To setup apache, setup a virtual host to point to the public/ directory of the project and you should be ready to go! It should look something like below:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName zf2-tutorial.localhost
    DocumentRoot /path/to/zf2-tutorial/public
    SetEnv APPLICATION_ENV "development"
    <Directory /path/to/zf2-tutorial/public>
        DirectoryIndex index.php
        AllowOverride All
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    </Directory>
</VirtualHost>
