The Akelos PHP Framework is a web application development platform based on the MVC (Model View Controller) design pattern. Akelos is based on good practices.

Using the Akelos Framework developers can:

  • Easily write views using Ajax.
  • Control requests and responses through a controller.
  • Manage internationalized applications.
  • Connect the models and the database using simple conventions.

The PHP applications using the Akelos PHP framework can run on most shared hosting service providers since Akelos only requires that PHP be available at the server. This means that the Akelos PHP Framework is the ideal candidate for distributing standalone web applications as it does not require any non-standard PHP configuration to run.

Goals of the Akelos PHP Framework

  • Improve developer happiness.
  • Speed up the creation of complex web applications writing less code.
  • Provide all the means for creating applications that can run on cheap PHP4/PHP5 hosts and in the developer desktop without complex configurations.
  • Help on the hard task of creating and maintaining applications with data and views in multiple languages.
  • Favor conventions over configurations.
