Download and install

There are two ways to install Bear Framework, both really easy.

Install via Composer

Composer is a dependency manager and if you are already using it you can run:

composer require bearframework/bearframework

Then include the Composer autoload file in your project.

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

Download the zip file

Download the latest release from our GitHub page. The zip includes a ready to use version that contains all dependencies. Then add the following code to your project.

require '/path/to/bearframework/autoload.php';

You can also download a sample app and begin building your app right away.
