XMLNuke is Web development framework based on XML. Programming with the XMLNuke framework, you create your Web site based on your data. Web design is not mandatory. To aid in this work, XMLNuke provides several classes for abstracting the use of XML and the environment in which XMLNuke is running. PHP5 or CSharp/Mono may be used by programmers to build applications with XMLNuke.
Vici MVC is a MVC Web application framework for .NET 2.0 or higher. It runs on the low-level ASP.NET layer provided by the .NET framework, but does not use ASP.NET WebForms and Controls. The framework is controller-centric as opposed to the view-centric architecture of ASP.NET WebForms. This allows Web applications to be built according to the MVC pattern with minimal effort. Vici MVC emphasises complete separation of concerns, ease of use, minimal configuration requirements, integration with any data access technology, performance, and easy deployment ("XCOPY deployment").
Kohana is a PHP 5 framework that uses the Model View Controller architectural pattern. It aims to be secure, lightweight, and easy to use. Although it reuses many common design patterns and concepts, there are some things that make Kohana stand out. It is community driven, uses strict PHP 5 OOP to provide visibility protection, automatic class loading, overloading, interfaces, abstracts, and singletons, and is extremely lightweight. Kohana has no dependencies on PECL extensions or PEAR libraries. Large, monolithic libraries are avoided in favor of optimized solutions.
Spiked is a Python Web development framework built on a top of Twisted and Cheetah. Writing applications in Spiked is centered around creating fragments: dynamic portions of your application which in code look like Python classes with corresponding Cheetah templates, which are later grouped together into areas and pages. Collections of pages form Spiked applications. One could say that Spiked is front-end oriented framework. It also provides facilities for plugging in custom data back-ends.
Zend Framework is a framework for PHP 5 that is based on simplicity, object-oriented best practices, corporate friendly licensing, and a rigorously tested agile code base.

PhpStartApp (PSA) is intended to be the base of a PHP Web application. It is collection of classes, a small framework, that will help you to start a new Web application and tries to solve some common problems and tasks. It will not force you to drastically change your coding style or introduce tons of abstraction layers or wrappers that you have to learn. Its main purpose is to force modular design based on plug-ins and some common design patterns, and to provide flexible solutions for some common problems. The idea is that you build your application upon PSA by making plug-ins that are nothing more than classes that extend Psa_Plugin classes.
