I’m excited to announce the official release of Flast! (my very first open source project!)
For those of you who don’t know (everyone), Flast is an open source framework for PHP version 5.3. It is focused on performance (fast) and removing restrictions on developers (flexible).
You can check out Flast here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/flast
Your feedback is much appreciated.
Here’s a little history about why I decided to create Flast…..
While working on DealsPlus and Sazze, we evaluated many PHP frameworks, but decided to create our own because they were all to slow and/or forced us to use a particular coding methodology (i.e. MVC). After successfully creating a very useful framework that actually improves performance, I wanted to give back to the open source community by using my experience (and the awesome new features in PHP 5.3) to create a framework that gives the developer complete control over performance and functionality.
Right now, Flast is in a very early pre-Alpha phase, but it should be useful by the time a production ready PHP 5.3 is released.
