CakePHP is a free, open-source, rapid development framework for PHP. It’s a foundational structure for programmers to create web applications. Our primary goal is to enable you to work in a structured and rapid manner–without loss of flexibility.
CakePHP takes the monotony out of web development. It provides you with all the tools you need to get started coding and what you need to get done: the logic specific to your application. Instead of reinventing the wheel every time you begin a new project, check out a copy of CakePHP and get started with the logic of your application.
CakePHP has an active developer team and community, bringing great value to the project. In addition to keeping you from wheel-reinventing, using CakePHP means your application’s core is well tested and is being constantly improved.
