PHP Fyrwerks

I am pleased to announce that I am in the process of developing and (at some stage) releasing my personal PHP development framework – Fyrwerks. This has been an ongoing project for some time, it is only recently that I have decided to consider releasing it publicly.

While I can’t give away too many details just yet, the following are some of the features you can expect to see in the first release:

  • A structured framework for installing and maintaining custom PHP web apps.
  • Libraries dedicated to simplifying and object orientating repetitive or complex tasks
  • Fast script execution and reliable communication channels between different services.
  • Compact and easy to set-up.
  • Fully GoPHP5 compliant.

The development site is located at, some early demos should be available from next month.

Check back soon for updates!
