MochiPHP is a lightweight framework for PHP that adopts component and page oriented design with a simple database and object-persistence library. Page oriented design: write a class and template pair per page. Form components hide complex HTML markup and user interaction handling. Persistent objects with auto-generated property accessors.
superGlobals is a PHP library that transparently injects into a superglobal or global variable while keeping all functionality of a regular array, but extending it with type casting and URI parsing into that array. It can use memcached for additional performance and can interact with custom DB abstractions (mostly PEAR). It may filter, cast, or validate variables as: boolean, integer, float, string, array, object, IPv4 address, IPv6 address, regular expression, URL, URL encoded string, HTML escaped string, or SQL escaped string. It is possible to pass a function name callback as a casting or validation method. Also, it is possible to pass multiple casting methods for each variable, which is useful for array processing.
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.
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.
