PyritePHP

PHP/Bootstrap framework to kick-start multilingual web application development

Simple event-driven framework for creating PHP 5 applications backed by a PDO database and with a Twitter Bootstrap user interface. Emphasis has been given on security:

  • SQL queries use placeholders, of course, and a whitelist for column names;
  • User passwords are saved in cryptographically secure hash form in the database;
  • Twig templating has escaping enabled globally by default;
  • Sessions are tied to the browser's IP address and fingerprint to reduce the risk of hijacking;
  • Form displays are tied to the current session to elimiate duplicate submissions and further reduce the risks associated with session hijacking and scripted attacks;
  • New users require e-mail confirmation to become active;
  • E-mail and password changes require password re-entry and trigger e-mail notifications;
  • Registration and password reset processes don't leak whether an e-mail is already signed up;
  • Covering 98% of users, forms are validated client-side to improve responsiveness.

Just use this repo as your starting point, modify this file and the contents of modules/ and templates/ to suit your needs. The rest of the developer documentation can be found in Developers.

Why the name "Pyrite"?

This framework was actually built as the starting point for a commercial project named "PyriteView" as a play on the words "Peer Review". The framework was then forked on its own as it is highly generic. The name "PyritePHP" then made sense, considering its origin.

Version 0.9.1

All the planned functionality is included, however some API design is still slightly in flux (i.e. some event vs class choices). If you're looking to fork, this is probably a good enough starting point, however if you'd like future bug fixes and updates, you might want to wait for version 1.0.

Installation

Requirements

  • PHP 5.x or later
  • PHP extension modules: mbstring, mcrypt, pdo_sqlite, readline
  • SQLite 3
  • Typical Linux command line tools: make, wget, gzip
  • A web server of course

Web Server Configuration

In order to produce clean, technology-agnostic URLs such as http://www.yourdomain.com/articles/127, you need to tell your web server to internally redirect requests for non-existent files to /index.php, which will look in PATH_INFO for details. We also want to prevent access to private files.

Here are sample configurations for major server software:

Apache

RewriteEngine on

RewriteRule ^(bin|lib|modules|node_modules|templates|var|vendor) - [F,L,NC]

RewriteRule ^$ /index.php [L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.+) /index.php/$1 [L]

Nginx

location ~ /(bin|lib|modules|node_modules|templates|var|vendor) {
    deny all;
    return 404;
}

location ~ \.php$ {
    # Usual FastCGI configuration
}

location / {
    index index.html index.htm index.php;
    try_files $uri $uri/ $uri/index.php /index.php;
}

Lighttpd

# TODO: Deny private directories
url.rewrite-if-not-file (
    "^/(.*)$" => "/index.php/$1"
)

First-time initialization

Download

Clone or unzip this repository into the document root of the web site this will become. Alternatively, you can use Composer to create this root directory for you, for example if you want to create foo/:

$ composer create-project vphantom/pyrite-php foo

Configure

Edit config.ini to change any defaults as needed.

Create directories and empty database

Run make init. This will automatically download and set up PHP's Composer package manager, then use it to download runtime dependencies locally. Finally, it will create the database tables and the administrative user so you can log into your new installation. You will be prompted on the command line for an e-mail address and password to use for that unrestricted account. (NOTE: This prompt requires PHP's readline, so it will not work on Windows.)

You will also need to make sure that your web server or PHP process has read-write access to the var/ directory where the database, logs and template cache are stored.

Updating

While the structure of the framework isn't upgradeable since it consisted of a simple starting point for your own application, the bulk of the core components is safely packaged in NPM and Packagist (Composer). Therefore, make update should provide all the bug fixes you'll need down the road.
