Pluf is a powerful PHP framework with a very small footprint, built for developers who need a simple and elegant toolkit to create full-featured web applications, with a vriety of addons/plugins.

Why Pluf?

Framework with a small footprint

Pluf has a 2MB download, including the user guide.

Exceptional performance

Pluf consistently outperforms most of its competitors.

Clear documentation

The Pluf User Guide comes with the download. It contains an introduction, tutorial, a number of "how to" guides, and then reference documentation for the components that make up the framework.

No large-scale monolithic libraries

Pluf is not trying to be all things to all people. It is a lean MVC framework, with enough capabilities to improve your productivity, while providing for third-party addons/plugins for additional functionality.

Compatibility with standard hosting

Pluf only needs PHP 5.3.7, and plays nicely with almost all shared or dedicated hosting platforms. Many webapps need a database, and Pluf supports the most common, including MySQL.

Nearly zero configuration

Much of the Pluf configuration is done by convention, for instance putting models in a "models" folder. There are still a number of configuration options available, through scripts in the "config" folder.

No restrictive coding rules

Use your own coding and naming conventions, with only a few caveats that deal with classname conflicts. Pluf looks to empower you, not shackle you.

No need for template language

Pluf comes with a simple, substitution based, templating tool. Addons/plugins are available for most of the full-blown templating engines, if that is what you are used to.

Simple solutions over complexity

Pluf encourages MVC, but does not force it on you.

Spend more time away from the computer

Don't we all want it? Pluf is easy to learn and to get proficient with.
