What is CakePHP?
CakePHP is an open source web framework for the traditional web language, PHP. Cake PHP framework follows the model-view-controller (MVC) approach. MVC is an architectural pattern for developing and implementing the user interface on the web. The CakePHP framework is of course written in the PHP language. In fact, PHP follows many of the concepts from the framework Ruby on Rails.
Here at Codal, a UX design and development agency, we use CakePHP in many of our projects.
Overall, CakePHP is simplifies the process of devloping a web application; it requires much less code, and will take a lot less time.
CakePHP makes building web applications simpler, faster, while requiring less code. Their motto is “Build fast, grow solid with CakePHP” and this couldn’t be anymore accurate.
