Cake PHP

CakePHP is a rapid development framework for PHP that provides an extensible architecture for developing, maintaining, and deploying applications. Using commonly known design patterns like MVC and ORM, CakePHP reduces development costs and helps developers write less code.

CakePHP is a free and open-source. The framework provides foundational structure for programmers to create web applications. The primary primary goal of Cake PHP is to enable you to work in a structured and rapid manner–without loss of flexibility.

The CakePHP framework takes the monotony out of web development. It delivers all the tools one needs to get started coding but most of all it provides the logic specific to your application. Instead of reinventing the wheel every time a developer sits down to a new project, checking out a copy of CakePHP can be a good start.

CakePHP has an active developer team and community, bringing great value to the project. In addition to keeping developers from wheel-reinventing, using CakePHP means the application’s core is well tested and is being constantly improved.
