Wolff is a ridiculously small and lightweight PHP framework, intended for those who want to build web apps without dealing with complexity.

Wolff is the perfect solution for building small and medium-sized web applications.

Note: The core code of the framework is available at Wolff-framework.


📓 Extremely easy: It's simple to use and comes ready to be deployed, giving you the opportunity to learn it in just a single night (sleep included).

🚀 Ridiculously fast: Due to its simplicity, the framework is able to handle hundreds of requests per second. It's very friendly with potato servers.

🛠️ Comprenhensive: It has everything you may need for building a web app, from a handy database abstraction layer to a dynamic template engine.

🦄 Elegant: Its source code and interface has been meticulously written, it's expressive and elegant, without depending on a single external dependency.
