Getting started

Here's how to get into the flow:

  1. Kickstart your first package

    Go to /home/englisha/tests/tutorial
    and run
    ./flow kickstart:package MyCompany.MyPackage
    to create a package with a standard controller

  2. Test your controller

    "MyCompany.MyPackage" has either not yet been created or not activated. Follow step 1 and reload this page.

    If you named your package "SomethingElse" visit http://test3.englishacademybg.com/SomethingElse/

  3. Read the tutorial

    Switch over to the Quickstart Tutorial to get the a first overview.

  4. Deactivate the Welcome package (optional)

    Deactivate the Welcome package with
    ./flow package:deactivate TYPO3.Welcome

    Afterwards make sure to remove the "Welcome" SubRoute definition from the global routes in Configuration/Routes.yaml.


About TYPO3 Flow

TYPO3 Flow is an offspring from the development of the rewrite of TYPO3 CMS and can be used independently as an application framework. It is licensed under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License version 3 or later.


Many people have contributed to TYPO3 Flow with ideas, design, testing, money, code and espresso. A big thank you goes to the TYPO3 community and the members of the TYPO3 Association who made the development of TYPO3 Flow possible at all.

The main part of TYPO3 Flow was designed and developed by Robert Lemke. The persistence integration was developed and major contributions to TYPO3 Flow were made by Karsten Dambekalns, who co-leads the project. Andreas Förthner designed and developed the Security Framework while Bastian Waidelich created the initial implementation of TYPO3 Flow's routing mechanism. Sebastian Kurfürst and Bastian Waidelich designed and implemented the Fluid templating engine.

Further code contributions were made by the TYPO3 Flow team and others: Adrian Föder, Alexander Stehlik, Andreas Wolf, Aske Ertmann, Bernhard Fischer, Christian Jul Jensen, Christian Kuhn, Christian Müller, Christopher Hlubek, Daniel Brün, Felix Oertel, Ferdinand Kuhl, Irene Höppner, Jochen Rau, Johannes Künsebeck, Julian Kleinhans, Julian Wachholz, Karol Gusak, Lars Peipmann, Lienhart Woitok, Marco Huber, Martin Brüggemann, Martin Ficzel, Michael Klapper, Michael Sauter, Nils Jeisecke, Oliver Hader, Rens Admiraal, Sascha Egerer, Stefan Neufeind, Stephan Schuler, Thomas Hempel, Thomas Layh, Tim Eilers, Tobias Liebig, Tolleiv Nietsch and Zach Davis.

The initial design of the AOP framework and the IoC container were inspired by the viFramework developed by Florian Grandel who also pointed Robert to the Spring Framework which was a great source for inspiration. Further frameworks and projects which influenced the design of TYPO3 Flow are AspectJ, NanoContainer, Ruby on Rails, Symfony, QT and surely more.

The overall design and concepts would be way less mature and elegant if experts like Martin Fowler, Eric Evans, Jimmy Nilsson, Kent Beck or Paul Duvall wouldn't have shared their insights in books and talks.

Many more contributions have been made by various members of the TYPO3 and PHP community - thanks to all of you!
