PHP MVC Skeleton App

A simple and easy to understand PHP MVC skeleton application

While reading about the “best” PHP frameworks of 2014 at SitePoint, I stumbled upon a little framework that will be very handy, especially where a full-blown framework may be a bit too much.

The PHP-MVC Project has two editions available, a basic version, and then an advanced version that supports Twig and automatic Saas compiling.

The developer of PHP-MVC was quoted in the SitePoint article, basically stating why he created it:

Most frameworks are simply too advanced, making it hard for non-professional developers or frontend people to quickly build good things, so I was always searching for a naked and totally stripped-down PHP barebone application. php-mvc solves this problem and reduces the learning curve to a total time of under 30 minutes while still being very professional and self-explaining.

I’ll still probably use Alto Router for really simple sites or apps, and Slim Framework for slightly larger sites.

I’ll probably never need to use the PHP-MVC skeleton application, but it’s nice to have available. PHP-MVC framework can be downloaded from GitHub, here’s the basic version, and here’s the advanced version.

    Sass, not SAAS! Great article and thanks for directing me to this project!
