Simple framework implements a design pattern MVC, based SILEX (PHP micro-framework, created by Symfony2 components). I have taken some ideas from the project GitHub (silex-enhanced). The documentation can be found on the SILEX Online. Examples of installation of the framework given for OS "Windows" and web server Nginx.

Main features of the application:

  • application implements a simple application management blog.
  • expands with configuration files located in the `app/Resources/?onfig`.
  • it works as a web or as a console application.
  • console application can perform various tasks (e.g. Creation of a database `app/Console/scripts/orm/schema_create.bat`).
  • as an example, the work of the console application implemented to work with the service UBKI.
  • realized the localization of two languages: English and Russian.
  • ensures the registration process, user authentication and authorization.
  • the database created two users with the appropriate rights. The Administrator (login = admin; pass = foo), User (login = user; pass = foo).
  • uses a database type SqlLite `app/Resources/db/app.db`.
  • work with databases provided by Doctrine(DBAL, ORM) `vendor/doctrine` and PHP ActiveRecord `library/AR`.
  • realized the possibility output the pages using the library Pagerfanta `library/Pagerfanta`.
  • used template Twig `vendor/twig`.
  • library of SwiftMailer is used for email `vendor/swiftmailer`.
  • added services such as Zend-Filter, Zend-Json and others `vendor/zendframework`.
  • added services for working with arrays, strings, XML, HTTP, Markdown `app/Services/My`.
  • on the client side using the library: jQuery, Bootstrap 3, RequireJS, Backbone, Vue `public/js/lib`.
  • client-side services are used: Datepicker, FormValidation, MaskInput, Highlight `public/js/app/services`.
  • `ToDo` implemented application (for the local or server storage) to show the work of the framework Backbone.js `public/js/app/bb-todo`.
  • `ToDo` implemented application (for the local storage) to show the work of the framework Vue.js `public/js/app/vue-todo`.

It is often helpful to have different configuration values based on the environment the application is running in. For example, you may wish to use a different cache driver locally than you do on your production server.

For this task you can create a file env.yml with specific settings and place it in the root of your application. The file env.yml will replace the values of existing file parameters.yml.
