Fat-Free Framework 3.2.2

A complex PHP micro-framework for helping programmers create powerful Web applications, all at under 100 KB worth of PHP code
The Fat-Free Framework framework is also known as F3::PHP or just F3.

Since almost all Web applications today use a database one of the best features of F3 is its extended support for a wide range of databases, even for NoSQL ones.

The framework has a mini-ORM included out of the box, that can work with the likes of MySQL, SQLite, MSSQL, Sybase, DB2, MongoDB and PostgreSQL.

This ensures the framework can be used on various server environments and configurations, since for most apps PHP is the main stay, while database support is usually the tricky requirement.

The Fat-Free Framework aims most of all to be small and fast, being basically a placeholder for packages that ensure support for various features.

If you have used Ruby and Sinatra in the past, then Fat-Free will seem very familiar.

  • Routing engine
