so with my first post I would like to announce a new project.
From the Description it sas:
Sweany is a performance-orientated and programmer-friendly MVC framework for PHP. The current downloadable version comes with a bb-code forum and a contact form, both implemented as plugins. These are shipped as examples as there is no documentation yet.
It is released under Gnu GPL
The features are as follows:
* Pages (Model, View Controller based)
* Blocks (Model, View Controller based)
* Layouts (Model, View Controller based)
* Tables (map the database structure)
* Plugins (have Pages, Blocks and Tables)
* Vendors (needs proper testing)
* Helpers (various integrated helper classes)
* Sophisticated HTML Form creation/validation (even automated validation against database entries)
* Supports different languages on the fly (via adding xml files)
* Integrated user management (groups still to come)
* Validator mode
* Syslog (Internal Debug Mode to monitor performance and engine calls)
* Fast core (a single file holds everything to reduce disk loading times... needs to be pushed)
QB is an extension that let you perform computationally intensive tasks in PHP at much higher speed. What it does is take the Zend Engine opcodes in a PHP function, translates them into opcodes for VM that employs static typing (using type information inside doc comment section). The result runs typically around 10 times faster. With operations like matrix multiplication, the gain is even greater. The added power let you do things that you wouldn't even think about doing because it'd be insanely slow in stock PHP.
The project's main focus is on image manipulation. That's where you often need the high throughput. At the following link you'll find examples of what the extension is capable of:
Most of the effects shown take less than a quarter of a second to apply. The cool part is that these filters are freely available on the web. They work on the front end too, as they are Flash Pixel Bender shaders. If you click on the "Live Demo" link, on one side you'll see what Flash produces (updated as you move the control). On the other side, you see what QB produces.
The code is fairly stable at this point. Until people start using it though it's hard to know how bug-free it is. If you're interested in giving it a test drive, here's the link to the installation instructions:
We are in the process of creating a open source persistent browser based web game (PBBG) framework which will have all the features to get you started and let you start developing your unique features without having to write all the basics. We have taken a modular approach, you can use only the modules you want. If you wanted just a forum you could enable only the core, user and forum modules.
We are building our framework using Kohana which is an open source, object oriented (H)MVC web framework built using PHP5 by a team of volunteers that aims to be swift, secure, and small. We are using Kohana 3.3 with many modules, including the following:
1.) ORM is a a powerful Object Relational Mapping (ORM) module that uses the active record pattern and database introspection to determine a model's column information.
2.) Mustache is a template specification we use for our templates, we use Kostache's implementation.
What's The Latest Version?
The latest version of OpenNotion is currently Alpha. This version is intended to gain feedback from users to help us improve for our initial release and to give potential users a sneak peak
While we do have an alpha available for download, the alpha should not be installed on a production server. A disclaimer is visible when you download the software.
