Thanks for the excellent article .. I am getting started with PHP and am looking for a lightweight framework as a foundation for future projects. Any documentation and or simple examples of each feature would be appreciated, especially for someone getting started. Thanks again.
Thanks for the article. This one looks easier than the rest of the frameworks(Zend is a nightmare). I haven't chosen my framework yet, and honestly I'm starting to suffocate in all of 'em. Currently I'm stuck between this one and CakePHP. Just a quick question: If I wanted to develop an upload center, would it be efficient and sufficient to use this framework???
Yes, this framework was developed for easy usage and very quick development of all kind of web apps. It gives you all the basics and you can build your app (whatever it is, even an upload center) on top of it. Perhaps our next article can give you some more info on how to start: www.codeproject.com/Articles/586703/Easily-implementing-your-own-online-shop[^]. It's about creating a basic online shop, but can be seen as sample on how to start any app based on the framework.
Wow, it's older than CodeIgnitor? Thank's for sharing this information. Friend of mine is actually starting a PHP project (Portal) & want's to know about which framework he should use. Initially I kind of suggested to use PRADO, but then he pointed out CodeIgnitor and said that CodeIgitor is more active than PRADO. May be I will ask him to have a look at this framework before finalizing the choice.

Knowledge exists, man only discovers it.
That's right. We currently only have the API reference docs at github and this article.
More to come in form of some more articles, but if there's enough interest we may set up some more
help in form of a forum or stuff. Ideas? Wishes?
From what I gather, CodeIgniter has been essentially abandoned at this stage as there is no longer any mention of upgrades to a third major release, nor any real-time support from EllisLab or whoever. It's become an orphan to the community. Don't get me wrong, it's a great framework, although I'm not sure I would invest in it as a long-term solution to new and complex sites.
Scavix looks great, I'm eager to see how it performs in comparison!
