PHPTAL is a fast, safe, XML-based template engine for XHTML and HTML5. It implements Zope's Template Attribute Language, which has clean, concise syntax that is compatible with XML tools (no custom ugly tags), and template source files can even be previewed in Web browsers or opened in WYSIWYG editors. Templates are compiled to PHP and cached, giving great performance and taking advantage of PHP accelerators. PHPTAL by default ensures well-formed output and escapes XML-unsafe characters everywhere, which means that your pages can be completely safe against HTML-injection (XSS) without great effort. It features fine-grained caching of output, pre- and post- filters, internationalization via gettext or custom backend, creation of custom template attributes and expressions, and templates loaded from non-standard sources (e.g. databases). It supports UTF-8 well, is easy to integrate and redistribute with PHP frameworks and applications, and has an object-oriented design and a comprehensive unit test suite.
SynApp2 is a development tool that generates database-backed Web applications by processing your MySQL or Oracle schema definition and producing the Web pages used to manage your data. It does more than an admin tool or file manager by considering table relations as a cohesive whole that drives the generation of a complete application that smoothly integrates your entire database design, complete with PDF reports. It is open, compact, efficient, and compatible with the tools and technologies you’re using now.
AutoCMS is a smaller CMS with the minimum needed to have a presence on the Internet. Its main file is less than 10kb large by default. No database is required. It only has the concept of one user (the admin). The password is protected with SHA1. CSS styles are easy to build and to change. Changing a page is very fast. XHTML and CSS code are validated by W3C validators. Data is stored in a PHP file which can be downloaded by FTP for backups. The generated contents are friendly for searchers. The result is visualized correctly in all browsers. It allows you to update all contents without having knowledge of programming.
