Move the contents of the Proot download to the public folder on your server or local development environment. Things should work out-of-the-box, and you should see an app launching when you point your browser to the location you moved Proot to ("http://localhost/path/to/proot/appname/").

Consult Proot guides ( for detailed instructions and troubleshooting.

Getting started

1. Copy one of the directories under "templates" to "apps". (Or duplicate one of the sample apps.)
2. Point your browser to "http://localhost/proot/:app/" (or whatever the address to your server is) - the app will start in your browser.
3. Change something in the directory you just copied.
4. Refresh the browser window and witness the results.
5. Repeat 3 and 4!
