Tutorial

layout

A classic application directory layout:

- .htaccess // Rewrite rules
+ public
  | - index.php // Application entry
  | + css
  | + js
  | + img
+ conf
  | - application.ini // Configure 
- application/
  - Bootstrap.php   // Bootstrap
  + controllers
     - Index.php // Default controller
  + views    
     |+ index   
        - index.phtml // View template for default controller
  + library // libraries
  + models  // Models
  + plugins // Plugins

DocumentRoot

You should set

DocumentRoot
to
application/public
, thus only the public folder can be accessed by user

index.php

index.php
in the public directory is the only way in of the application, you should rewrite all request to it(you can use
.htaccess
in Apache+php mod)
$app  = new Yaf_Application(APPLICATION_PATH . "/conf/application.ini");
$app->bootstrap() //call bootstrap methods defined in Bootstrap.php
    ->run();

Rewrite rules

Apache

#.htaccess
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule .* index.php

Nginx

server {
  listen ****;
  server_name  domain.com;
  root   document_root;
  index  index.php index.html index.htm;

if (!-e $request_filename) { rewrite ^/(.*) /index.php/$1 last; } }

Lighttpd

$HTTP["host"] =~ "(www.)?domain.com$" {
  url.rewrite = (
     "^/(.+)/?$"  => "/index.php/$1",
  )
}

application.ini

application.ini
is the application config file
ini
[product]
;CONSTANTS is supported
application.directory = APPLICATION_PATH "/application/" 
Alternatively, you can use a PHP array instead: ```php <?php $config = array( "application" => array( "directory" => application_path . "/application/", ), );

$app = new yaf_application($config); ....

### default controller
In Yaf, the default controller is named `IndexController`:

```php <?php class IndexController extends Yaf_Controller_Abstract { // default action name public function indexAction() {
$this->getView()->content = "Hello World"; } } ?>

view script

The view script for default controller and default action is in the application/views/index/index.phtml, Yaf provides a simple view engine called "YafViewSimple", which support the view template written in PHP.

   Hello World


   


Run the Application

http://www.yourhostname.com/

Alternative

You can generate the example above by using Yaf Code Generator: https://github.com/laruence/php-yaf/tree/master/tools/cg

./yaf_cg -d output_directory [-a application_name] [--namespace]
