Introducing the Helix PHP Framework

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to introduce a newly opened PHP Framework called Helix that we have developed over the past 6 years.  You can download it here from SourceForge.

 

Helix is very easy to install -- just drop the helix folder in your webroot and go to the setup page.  It comes with hundreds of pre-designed tables and relationships, as well as the classes that manipulate data in those tables, so you don't have to design the database.  Every table/class is customizable, and there is also support for javascript frameworks (ExtJS by default), FlowPlayer for video streaming, Amazon Web Services, Authorize.net and PayPal, and much more.

 

Give it a try and let us know what you think!

You have to be kidding me.

The main problem I can see is that there is little to no documentation, your modules aren't named anything remotely useful and the description you have posted on this board sounds more like a CMS then a framework.

Thanks for the feedback.  Yes, the documentation is in progress, and it will have an explanation of all the modules.  It is definitely a framework and not a CMS, even if the description made it sound that way.

 

I will update when the documentation is more available...

Uh... it took you 6 years to get a final product? No offense, but that's a damn long time. Do I have to wait 8 months for security patches as well?

Really, the time it doesn't bother me that much but using that thing seems more counterproductive. It's a frame, I think, but to build applications on top of it doesn't sound like a pretty idea. I look through the PDF and it looked more like a sales man talking.

 

complex, weird named directory structures. have you heard of KISS?
