I was so bored setting up a zend framework application after another that I've created a simple script.
Sharing is caring, so you can find it on github with the lovely repository name phpzendframework_kickstarter.
This repository provides you two scripts to quickly create a new application from scratch (like a breeze and blazing fast within seconds ;-)).
git clone https://github.com/bazzline/php_zend_framework_kickstarter
bash php_zend_framework_kickstarter/create_application /path/to/the/application
See it working and that is it. All mandatory parts are a bash.
