Following the "simple" instructions, I'm completely unable to get the FrameWork to function. I don't normally use Git or Composer, so don't know what to expect as a final result when these 4 steps are complete to even begin troubleshooting. Some of the Git files are upwards of 3 years old, so I'm not even sure if any of this is current or not.
Even when I get something installed, I see a
www\ folder that has a few files in it, which I presume go into the root of my site, but they appear to have dependencies on folders above that folder, so suggests to me that I have to have these folders on my production server, or that the installation process hasn't complete.
Ultimately, I just want to get to the folders/files that I need in order to use the Joomla Framework (on a production server) can I get those somewhere easily, or is there something missing in what I'm doing below?
Get the Sample Application
The easiest way to get to know the Joomla! Framework is to start with the sample app.
Install Composer. Download this [sample app] repository from GitHub. Run `composer install`. View in your browser.
