With the PHP Text File Interface (Txt-Db-API) you can access normal text files like an SQL Database. You don't need any special database software on the Web server, yet you can still use SQL calls. You can use the API to create, query, change, or delete SQL tables, and you don't have to bother with the text files themselves; almost everthing can be done with the supported API calls. The Txt-Db-API is object-oriented and very simple to use.
The PHP SQL Toolkit is a PHP class system for abstracting database calls. Using classes or functions, it abstracts the underlying database structure into data sources in a manner similar to ODBC. Data sources are defined in one file and a standardized syntax is used for connecting to all databases. This is useful for portable code or for referencing multiple databases on multiple platforms all at the same time.
PHing Is Not GNU make; it's a project build system based on Apache Ant. You can do anything with it that you could do with a traditional build system like GNU make, and its use of simple XML build files and extensible PHP "task" classes make it an easy-to-use and highly flexible build framework. Features include file transformations (e.g. token replacement, XSLT transformation, Smarty template transformations), file system operations, interactive build support, SQL execution, CVS operations, and much more.
MidCOM, the Midgard Components Framework, is an MVC framework for the Midgard persistent storage platform. It provides mechanisms for building a Web site using components without much need for writing code to glue all this together. The administration site gets built automatically by using those components. Goodies like a caching engine and sub-requests make site building even easier.
