Before you start

neoan3 uses common web technologies in order to facilitate a reliable yet simple setup. We encourage local development ( and mention that in 2019 as neoan3's structure enables you to directly work on live systems ).

neoan3 is designed for Apache & Nginx but setup is easiest on Apache.



Linux (Ubuntu, amazonLinux, CentOS, ...)
MySQL or MariaDB
PHP7 (min. 7.2 recommended)
PHPUnit (optional, recommended on local system only)
NOTE: neoan3 has not been tested on WAMP or MAMP.

Installed tools


nodeJs & npm  (recommended)

Ensure PATH variable

Make sure all commands work properly and are added to PATH.
composer -V
git --version
node -v
npm -v

The cli tool

While you do not need neoan3-cli, it helps you a lot. You can install it globally via composer global require neoan3/neoan3.
