PhpPeanuts is a framework for developing database-backed applications in PHP. Rather than building an application from the bottom up, you initially only build domain model classes in which you specify properties, relationships, and database table names in metadata. The framework dynamically scaffolds getters and setters, persistency, navigation over relations, and input and delete validation. The abstract user interface instantly offers a rich set of pages for searching, browsing, drilling down, editing and reporting over your domain model. From there on you extend and refine both the domain model and the user interface to make it what you want by defining specialization classes and overriding inherited methods.
WebAbility is an advanced Web development platform that contains WebFlow, a content management system (CMS), a security advanced system (SAS), a powerful workflow engine, and Web site wrappers. It supports multiple database connections, multiple languages, multiple presentation templates, page, script, and library versioning, XML and Web Services integration, and advanced security management. It uses plugins to extend the software for tasks such as e-commerce, portals, intranets, and editorial systems.
Metastorage is a PHP data access object generator compiler tool. It implements an object persistence API from a description in an XML format named CPML. The persistent object classes implement object-relational mappings, so developers do not have to write SQL manually. It features an object query language for specifying conditions for querying objects, generation of classes for producing reports, generation of classes to manage templated Web forms for creating new persistent objects, and generation of UML class diagrams. It can be run from the command line or from a Web interface.
XIRE (eXtendable Information Rendering Engine) is an extendable DOM-based PHP 5 template engine that takes data provided by PHP and creates XML (or XHTML) documents based on templates. It is designed to work within other projects and is not anything but a templating engine. It is not a framework and does not provide duplicate routines that may exist elsewhere in your projects. Routines such as error handling (XIRE will throw exceptions), resource fetching, and debuging are assumed to exist elsewhere.
Piragibe is a business database driven application framework. Its main goal is to mimic, as closely as possible, the capabilities and behaviour of Oracle Forms. It offers a metaphor that resembles Oracle Developer with data blocks, forms, triggers, and events, a neat layer of data validation capable of validating fields, records, and blocks of records under programmatic control, clear separation and independence between database access, programmatic views of database data and visual presentation of data and information, access to any database supported by PHP, national language support, and the ability to develop CRUD applications with a few lines of code.
