StupidlySimple Framework is a micro framework built for lazy developers.

Suitable for those who used to develop vanilla projects, while following today's set of standard.

The core is very small in size, yet it contains most of the functions required to rapidly start developing a project. The name itself is obvious.

Technical Features

  • Lazy Routing - Route urls according to file names. Your /home will be redirected to home.php and so on. You can also route on specific uri, and/or forward them to a controller.
  • Simple Templating Process - Copy and paste any templates you downloaded to the root directory, and viola, it's up and ready. You can still manage template them however that suits your likings.
  • Integrated with Composer - Download thousands of packages available straight to your project.
  • Integrated with Eloquent ORM - Manage database records with no hassles.
  • Dependency Injection - Minimize coupling and dependant on a single project. And provides easy access to objects and variables.
  • Out-of-the-Box Error Handler - We integrated the framework with Whoops, error handler in a less painful way.

StupidlySimple requires PHP at least 5.6 to run (with PHPUnit).
