WhatPHPSiteFoundation is a free lightweight PHP5 based web framework that provides basic services such as membership management, templates and database access for small to medium sized websites and web applications. At its core is a simple object oriented framework.
WhyThe typical problem we run into for small sites and applications is that we either have to hand roll a solution to provide login/role management and templates or use a CMS that is typically too large and complicated for the job. The goal of this project is to fill the apparent void that exists between starting from scratch and requiring a full blown CMS solution. The challenge we have discovered in creating this project is keeping it simple and lightweight. There is always a steady influx of ideas as to what we should do so we have to constantly answer the question, "is this really necessary?", whenever we want to add something new.
