Bootstrapping a Silex framework site

Recently I have been trying out the Silex micro-framework, as its counterpart Symfony was overkill for what I need. In the process of creating new test sites, I found that I was repeatedly performing basic tasks, such as setting up the Composer file, configuring Twig etc. Repeating simple tasks is an ideal job to delegate to a machine, so I put together a simple collection of files and an installation script which will produce a basic Silex site with templating enabled out of the box.

The code can be downloaded from the Silex Bootstrap repository under my GitHub account. It’s available under the same licence as Silex, and I will be adding more functionality as and when I come across tasks which I find myself repeating each time I set up a new site. Contributions, ideally as pull requests, are most welcome.
