Installation » Composer » Adding to an existing project

If you already have a Composer project setup then run this command inside the root directory:

composer require bolt/bolt ^3.1

If you use this method you will need to bootstrap Bolt yourself, depending on when you want to dispatch requests to Bolt. For some ideas of how to set up a bootstrap file see the Creating your own Bootstrap page.

Next Steps

Finishing Set-up
