Kiwa is made for the use with Composer. Be sure to get it at first.
Use your CLI and Composer to create a new website by running
$ composer create-project kiwa/website-skeleton my-project. Change my-project by your needs.
Move to your project directory, for example by running
$ cd my-project.
Create your code repository, for example by running
$ git init.
By running the installation a lot of basic files will be created, for example an assets folder for all your asset files. Those files can be committed to your repository.
Everything you want to do can be done with the help of the command line tool, which is stored in the bin folder. It will help creating pages and more. Run
$ php bin/console to get more information.
To access the website from public point your domain to the root so the
index.php will be used.
To run the website in a local environment, run
$ php -S 127.0.0.1:8000 -t public and open
http://127.0.0.1:8000 in your browser. Make sure
mod_rewrite is active.
