Folder structure

A Glowie application is bundled with two main folders: app and vendor along with a main .htaccess Apache configuration file.

You only need to point your server to this root directory and Glowie will do the rest for you.

Here you will understand what every folder means and how your application is structured.

App folder

The app folder has everything related to your application. The folders within this folder are:

commands
Application CLI commands.

config
Your application environment and routing configuration files.

controllers
Application controllers.

languages
Application internationalization files.

middlewares
Application middlewares.

migrations
Application database migrations.

models
Application database models.

public
Application public accessible folder. All your application assets and public frontend files must be stored here.

storage
Application cache, logs and temporary files. This folder and its children must have writing permissions.

views
All your application views, layouts and helpers.

Vendor folder

The vendor folder is generated by Composer and stores everything related to your application dependencies and Glowie core modules. We do not recommend editing anything in this folder, since files will be changed if you update Glowie or any dependencies from your application.
