Swiftlet 3.0

Posted on January 26, 2012

Three years ago I released an early version of Swiftlet, a light-weight PHP framework built for speed and security. Over time however, a lot of functionality was added and started to suffer from feature creep. My original intention of creating a maintainable framework that was easy to pick up was a bit lost.

Last Sunday I had a spur of inspiration and decided to start over. With a slightly different vision, a better understanding of MVC and experience gained with the project I managed to finish it the same day. The result is about 150kB of code including documentation.

If you’re unfamiliar with the model-view-controller approach to programming Swiftlet might be a good starting point. The code is quite simple and hopefully the documentation makes the concept understandable.
