Getting up and running with Hazaar MVC is really easy and is done in only a few basic steps, depending on the operating system you are working with. I suggest Ubuntu Linux as Hazaar has been developed on Ubuntu so it will work with it. I have made some effort to ensure that Hazaar is cross-platform compatible, particularly with Windows support, but as I do not develop under Windows daily, some bugs may arise. If so, please create a support issue so they can be fixed. Hazaar MVC is installed with Composer and available via Packagist.

What is Composer?

As a PHP developer, you probably already know about Composer. If you don’t know, you should. Composer is a popular dependency management tool for PHP, created mainly to facilitate installation and updates for project dependencies. It will check which other packages a specific project depends on and install them for you, using the appropriate versions according to the project requirements.

To continue, please read the document that suits your development environment.
