What is FuelPHP?

FuelPHP is an open-source web application development framework that is designed for programmers who need a simple yet powerful toolkit to design and develop full-featured web applications. The development of FuelPHP started in 2010.

FuelPHP is an open-source web application development framework that is written in PHP 5.3 and it implements the HMVC software architecture pattern. HMVC is the acronym for the Hierarchical Model-View-Controller framework which allows developers to sub-request the controller, which then returns the partial page such as menus, comments, sidebar, etc, instead of returning the complete page as seen in normal MVC frameworks.

FuelPHP was  designed with the need to combine best web development practices from various frameworks such as Kohana and CodeIgniter with major improvements and ideas of its own. The FuelPHP database migration tool and scaffolding functionalities are motivated by the popular Ruby on Rails web development framework.

FuelPHP completely follows an object-oriented programing approach. Its architecture is based on the principle of modularity. the full application can be divided into modules and sub-modules, also, every component can be either extended or replaced without the need to rewrite a single line of code. FuelPHP supports any template parser such as PHPTal, Smarty, Twig, etc. for parsing its views.

What makes FuelPHP one of the most unique and premier web development frameworks used by PHP developers is that any new version of FuelPHP is backward compatible with older versions because of it has a very stable API.

Features of FuelPHP

FuelPHP offers a lot of feature to create a full-fledged web application. It also provides flexible web components, a very simple configuration, an easy-to-use ORM, an application development model that is REST-based, etc. the following are some of its notable features:

1. FuePHP offers developers a more flexible and community-driven web framework.

2. FuelPHP is very easy to configure and use.

3. FuelPHP is very portable and can work on almost any development and deployment server.

Benefits Of FuelPHP

FuelPHP is a nice and beautiful HMVC PHP 5.3 framework that comes with a set of components for designing and building web applications and the following are some of its Benefits and the Advantages

1. Modular structure: FuelPHP does not force you to use any modules or any HMVC file structure. If you want to use FuelPHP, the process of setting it up is quite easy. FuelPHP web apps are designed and developed in a modular structure and it makes it easier for developers, with very visible benefits.

2. HMVC pattern: The most important feature of this FuelPHP is the HMVC (Hierarchical Model View Controller) pattern which makes it very easy to access or use any properties, functions, class methods or files at higher levels.

3. Secure hashing function: FuelPHP offers support for strong cryptography tools and password hashing techniques to hash passwords in your database. It handles hashing, encryption, and decryption, by using the powerful PHPSecLib.

4. Scaffolding functionality: Scaffolding is a method of meta-programming for building database processes. FuelPHP scaffolding is very easy. It allows you to develop a basic CRUD application with very simple steps and minimal efforts.
