Projects / Zoop


Zoop is an object oriented framework based on a front controller. It is designed to be very fast and efficient and very nice for the programmer to work with. It is easily extensible, and you need only include the functionality you use. It features GuiControls (a PHP implementation of .net's webcontrols), AJAX support and integration, automatic form validation and creation (including db integration), a Smarty templating system, PDF creation, session handling, and SMTP template-based email sending.
