I was recently build my middle sized project with Slim and publish the starter-kit admin app as open-source project,
currently it only have user management feature to start with, and will add group/role manager in near future.

You can view the repo here:
or even launch quick-start app in pagodabox here:
or try the live sample here : ( username: [email blocked] , password: password )

it will only allow single user access at one time, so if someone login with same account, other session with same account wil be destroyed, better create your own and just play with it.

in the background, it use following library:

  • Slim : of course, as the base framework
  • Eloquent : the database access provider
  • Twig : the template engine
  • Sentry : user/ authorization provider
  • Slim-Facade : for Laravel like static interface to access underlying slim api
  • SB-Admin2 : free admin template from

note: I am working with CI for almost 4 years, jump to laravel since the L4 released, and feel L4 is too bloated for small project, so this starter app will taste a bit like Laravel :D

any suggestions and advices are greatly appreciated, and hope this will useful for others.

Documentation page are still in progress.

Ikhsan :)
