This is the first of a five-part series of articles written for the PHP developer interested in learning about an open-source, flexible, and scalable framework called Agavi. In this first article, you walk through the installation of the framework and the other required components, get an overview of Agavi and its functions, and create your first Web application.
The tutorial looks at installing and configuring the framework and how to get started on a new project (using the agavi command line tool). Screenshots show the resulting output of the command and sample code blocks show the simple structure that's generated. He looks at updates to this basic site including how to display static content and create an overarching "master template" to use as a layout for the whole site.
