Php Slim framework 3.0 New Update

HI ,

Will like to update the community on the following new changes . Building website with php using slim framework and twig as templating library.

Slim is now updated to 3.0 while the course was taught in 2.0. There is a major update and coding going into 3.0. While i learnt the course a few months back and started to build now, there is a lot of confusion now as googling for problems will easily pulled out slim 2.0 resources while the version we are working on is for slim 3.0

As i cracked my head to do more research, i hope to also list out the following urls that could help out the community just as some of you may also be doing the same things as i do. I super love treehouse and this community move to even greater heights going into a brand new year 2016.

Important info from official slim website documenting the changes http://www.slimframework.com/2015/02/11/whats-up-with-version-3.html

Resources provided by slim lovers on transiting to 3.0 from 2.0 https://blog.tamingtheelephpant.com/articles/slim-intro.html

Great tutorial for folks who are new to 3.0 https://blog.tamingtheelephpant.com/articles/slim-3-tutorial

Great starting tutorial and example of website structure directory build with slim 3.0 https://www.google.com.sg/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0ahUKEwjvy-7cgefJAhWBCY4KHdsoDoMQFggbMAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fakrabat.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2015-05-20-phpberks-getting-started-with-slim-3.pdf&usg=AFQjCNGq43wMOJ4MQfQm7HisffgclxwIng&sig2=Mq1d-RYhG74sTJLp-Ne2cw

Hope this list help you out with slim 3.0 . This list is by no means exhaustive. Do provide yours if you find a great resource for using slim 3.0.

Here are the dependencies enough to get slim and twig on your project. ( Did not download monolog and swiftMailer )

{ "require" : { "slim/slim": "^3.0", "twig/twig": "^1.23", "slim/twig-view": "^2.0" } }

Regards, Bk
