Simple, Easy-To-Use PHP Framework :: An Understanding

PHP has a lot many frameworks and I have gone through many of them. One of the biggest difficulty that I found in some of them was the learning curve. Most of these frameworks use complex directory structures and difficult to remember naming conventions. Also, each one of them uses their own method for adding templates and db access. You don’t get the option to put in something that you are familiar with, like Smarty.

According to me, PHP is a powerful language for web programming, both with regard to speed as well as with the ease of use for web. And when you consider Java for web programming, servlets are a powerful concept. It indeed becomes handy when the design concepts of servlets and the speed and usability of PHP can be combined. This framework is an attempt on that path.
