CakePHP is an open source PHP framework which has been designed to adopt the Model-View-Controller (MVC) principle. CakePHP adheres to the Convention over Configuration principle, which means that it aims to use some codes for the whole web application in a general place, so you don’t have to start repeating the same codes in multiple places. This saves in development time.
Some of the advantages of CakePHP are:
- Zero configuration to get started;
- It can be extended easily with the use of any number of plugins;
- CRUD Scaffolding, which basically allows you to get a preliminary view of the application that is being built;
- Ajax support, with the use of an Ajax helper class which is part of the core framework;
And obviously there are many more features and possibilities. And with the landscape of computer development changing rapidly, it is good to know that CakePHP is under active development, which means that is will be properly maintained and it is not likely to disappear.
