Guzzle is a RESTful Web service client framework that enables PHP developers to quickly build testable Web service clients utilizing HTTP/1.1 best practices. It gives you access to advanced features like persistent HTTP connections, parallel requests, exponential backoff, over the wire logging, MD5 validation, cookie jars, and a caching forward proxy.
Nibble Framework is a plug-in based framework that enables fast development of small to medium Web sites. It is designed using PHP 5.3 functionality such as namespaces. Web sites and applications are developed using collections of plug-ins that can be reused and shared with other developers. Plug-ins can be installed using a drag and drop interface. Many classes are provided, including the Nibble Forms class, Twitter feeds class, and RedBean PHP ORM.
Analog PHP is a short and simple logging package for PHP 5.3+ based around the idea of using closures for configurability and extensibility. It functions as a static class, but you can completely control the handling of log messages through closures (aka anonymous functions), and it also comes with a dozen pre-written handlers. It is well-documented, with examples for each type of log handler, and ultra-concise. The core is literally only 43 lines of clear, non-obfuscated code, and the whole is only a fraction of the size of comparable packages (for example, 293 total lines vs 1021 for Monolog).
WAWAS is a full PHP application server. The main server core listens to any IP/port and passes data to any mounted protocol on the listener. Implemented protocols are HTTP1.1/1.0, Comet, Telnet, DNS, mail, and FTP. Each protocol runs modules that build response data based on the requests. Memory object persistence allows data and caches to be shared across protocols or time. All configuration uses XML. It can be launched as a daemon, with or without forked workers, and is nearly as fast as Apache in preliminary tests.
