Akelos - Ruby on Rails port to PHP



Akelos is a PHP framework for developing database-backed web applications according to the Model-View-Controller pattern. It allows you to write views using Ajax, control requests and responses through a controller, manage internationalized applications, and communicate models and the database using simple conventions in a pure-PHP development environment built upon programming best practices. To go live, all you need to add is a database and a web server.

Who is the Akelos PHP Framework for?

  • PHP developers who want to enjoy writing web applications.
  • Ruby on Rails developers who need to code in PHP.
  • Developers who want to distribute their work to the mass market of cheap shared hosting.
  • Developers who need to write multilingual web applications.

Akelos based applications only require that PHP and a database be installed and configured on your server. This means you can host your apps with any hosting provider that supports PHP & MySQL, and the last time I checked that was 99.9% of hosting providers online.
