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.

Cosmiqum is small and fast CMF that is aimed to make any site quickly. Almost all of its functionality is implemented through plugins. Any plugin can register a filter for a specific event and any plugin can be a filter, which is useful for plugins that need to process another plugin's data. Every action in the core is logged and any plugin can log any of its actions. PHP errors are not displayed to the user, but the developer can get them from a specific array. Different configurations can be used for different hosts.
EZMVC is an easy-to-use Web development framework implementing the MVC (Model View Controller) design pattern. It helps you create maintainable, flexible, and scalable applications. It is similar to frameworks like CodeIgniter, CakePHP, or symfony, but does not contain all the features of those frameworks at the moment. It provides a base registry class for storing application variables, a router class to dispatch requests to controller classes, a MySQL database wrapper class, a base model class to manage stored information, a template processing class to manage the output of view scripts, and helper classes for CAPTCHA validation, display pagination, and bread crumb links.
A secure portal type application provides four basic functions for a Web development team: application security, account management, user and application mapping, and modular application development capability. AppDepot is not a content management system. The main objective of AppDepot is to offload critical functionality from the application and onto AppDepot. Web application developers are then free to focus on core application functionality. AppDepot works to provide a lightweight, small footprint platform where users and applications meet securely.
