NigaPHP Framework in 5 minutes

Getting Started

Let's discover NigaPHP Framework in 5 minutes.

Get started by creating a new Website.


  1. Install PHP
  2. Install Composer
"php": "^7.4|^8.0",
"ext-pdo_mysql": "*",
"ext-pdo_pgsql": "*",
"ext-pdo_sqlite": "*",
"composer": "^2.0"


composer create-project nigaphp/niga site_name

You can type this command into Command Prompt, Powershell, Terminal, or any other integrated terminal of your code editor.

The command also installs all necessary dependencies you need to run NigaPHP.

Development server

Change directory to your new website my-website

cd my-website
niga run:dev

Default values [HOST=localhost, PORT=8000, PUBLIC_PATH=public] you can change this in the config file %APP_ROOT%/config/app.json

Then open the this link in your web browser http://localhost:8000/.

Create a controller

niga make:controller HomeController

In this situation, we are creating a controller for the home page.

This command will create two new files for us.

  1. src/Controler/HomeController.php

Here is your new controller class.

namespace App\Controller;

use Niga\Framework\Controller\AbstractController;
use Niga\Framework\Attributes\Route;

class SiteController extends AbstractController
    #[Route('/home', name:'home', method:'get')]
    public function home() {
        return $this->render("home", [
            "name" => "home"

  1. views/home.php

And this is the view to rendered.

<?php if ($cName && $cPath) : ?>
    <h3>Hello <span class='be-color-py be-code'><?= $cName ?></span></h3>
    <p>Your <span class='be-color-py be-code'><?= $cName ?></span> class is located at <span class='be-color-py be-code'><?= $cPath ?></span> !</p>
<?php endif ?>
