UserFrosting is a secure, modern user management system written in PHP and built on top of the Slim Microframework, Twig templating engine, and Eloquent ORM.

This Core Sprinkle provides most of the "heavy lifting" PHP code. It provides all the necessary services for database, templating, error handling, mail support, request throttling, and more.
