Simblog aims to be one of the most easy-to-use and lightweight blogging platforms. It emphasizes user experience, workflow, and ease of use without neglecting usability and extensibility. It will take full advantage of what HTML5 and CSS3 have to offer without delving too deeply into experimental features. It is built on its own lightweight framework, which allows a high degree of extensibility and modularity for your blog. It uses Smarty as a templating engine (which also provides a caching mechanism), jQuery and Kendo UI for frontend design, and MySQL as a database.
RainFramework is an MVC Framework for PHP. It's easy to use and it enables teams to work better. It is installable with a simple copy/paste operation. It has a very small footprint, with just the necessary library and files. It is well documented and tested, and it allows you to create Web applications more quickly. It also supports multiple languages, has a WYSIWYG editor, and is extensible.
