Building Web Apps with the Limonade PHP Framework
May 05, 2011 @ 11:02:09

On PHPBuilder.com today Jason continues his look at some of the lighter weight PHP frameworks out there with his introduction to Limonade, a micro-framework for rapid web development and prototyping inspired by frameworks like Sinatra and Camping.

In this article I'll introduce you to Limonade, highlighting its key features by building a simple exercise diary (incidentally, this Limonade introduction is the latest installment of my ongoing review of lightweight PHP frameworks see Fat-Free, DooPHP, and my top ten list of lightweight frameworks).

He goes through the installation process (grabbing the latest version from Github) and shows how to create a first route and view for a "welcome" message. He also shows how to use a layout and pull in information from a text file to display in the view.
