Description

Grav is a Fast, Simple, and Flexible, file-based Web-platform. There is Zero installation required. Just extract the ZIP archive, and you are already up and running. It follows similar principles to other flat-file CMS platforms, but has a different design philosophy than most. Grav comes with a powerful Package Management System to allow for simple installation and upgrading of plugins and themes, as well as simple updating of Grav itself.

The underlying architecture of Grav is designed to use well-established and best-in-class technologies to ensure that Grav is simple to use and easy to extend. Some of these key technologies include:

Code Quality Rank: L3
Programming language: PHP
License: MIT License
Latest version: v1.7.26

QuickStart

These are the options to get Grav:

Downloading a Grav Package

You can download a ready-built package from the Downloads page on https://getgrav.org

With Composer

You can create a new project with the latest stable Grav release with the following command:

$ composer create-project getgrav/grav ~/webroot/grav

From GitHub

  1. Clone the Grav repository from https://github.com/getgrav/grav to a folder in the webroot of your server, e.g. ~/webroot/grav. Launch a terminal or console and navigate to the webroot folder:

    $ cd ~/webroot
    $ git clone https://github.com/getgrav/grav.git
    
  2. Install the plugin and theme dependencies by using the Grav CLI application bin/grav:

    $ cd ~/webroot/grav
    $ bin/grav install
    

Check out the install procedures for more information.

Adding Functionality

You can download plugins or themes manually from the appropriate tab on the Downloads page on https://getgrav.org, but the preferred solution is to use the Grav Package Manager or GPM:

$ bin/gpm index

This will display all the available plugins and then you can install one or more with:

$ bin/gpm install <plugin/theme>

Updating

To update Grav you should use the Grav Package Manager or GPM:

$ bin/gpm selfupgrade

To update plugins and themes:

$ bin/gpm update

Upgrading from older version

Running Tests

First install the dev dependencies by running composer install from the Grav root.

Then composer test will run the Unit Tests, which should be always executed successfully on any site. Windows users should use the composer test-windows command. You can also run a single unit test file, e.g. composer test tests/unit/Grav/Common/AssetsTest.php

To run phpstan tests, you should run:

  • composer phpstan for global tests
  • composer phpstan-framework for more strict tests
  • composer phpstan-plugins to test all installed plugins
