PHP Introducing MVC Frameworks in PHP Building an MVC Project Project Skeleton

If you need Slim-skeleton ver 3.*, use this command

Hey treehouse coders,

Since Slim updated to 4.4 in January 2020, the structure is drastically different to the one on tutorial. If you're like me, who'd prefer to follow the video closely and use Slim 3 type in the below command:

composer create-project slim/slim-skeleton:3.* [file_name]


composer create-project slim/slim-skeleton:3.1.6 [file_name] 

(v3.1.6 is more in tune with what is shown on video)

where [file_name] is your folder's name, or you can simply use "." to install in the folder you're in directly you'll get Slim 3.1 as well as other dependencies
