Introducing RawDev : a practical PHP framework

I want to let you know that I have decided to publish the framework RawDev that I am working on under the MIT license.

RawDev is a practical MVC framework for Rapid Web Development in PHP. Using RawDev you can program web applications faster in your team or by yourself.

RawDev seeks balance between the following principles: simplicity, modularity, flexibility, power, usability, speediness (execution), security, and reliability (well tested).

RawDev is also intended to be well-documented, collaborative and consistent.

Currently two production applications are using RawDev: and

Version 0.01 is a much more basic version (for now), it includes the error handling core library. The reason for this approach is that I will add documentation and unit tests every week before that library or module is published. The good news is that through weekly updates you will get a unique learning experience and sense of how RawDev works. The bad news is that  if you are eager to start  building web apps with RawDev you will have to wait until more modules are made available.

These weekly updates will lead to a presentation this summer at the Higher Education Web Symposium on July 21 & 22, 2010 at the University of Pennsylvania.  

RawDev can be downloaded from :

Also, expect weekly updates on:
