$ rest create <awesome-service>
  1. Change directory to service and write some migrations at src/Shared/Migration
$ rest migrate
  1. Synchronize model - repository - service - controller - test cases
  • To create some awesome apis, update your routes at config/api/*.json
$ rest sync
  1. View route list
  • To see which routes are configured and manage apis
$ rest route
  1. Serve your application to test in browser
$ rest serve
  1. Test your application with PHPUnit
