Whether youre a novice or an expert PHP programmer, Fat-Free will get you up and running in no time. No unnecessary and painstaking installation procedures. No complex configuration required. No convoluted directory structures. Its all object-oriented, but you can use it as a procedural code library if you know nothing about OOP.

The philosophy behind the framework and its approach to the Model-View-Controller design pattern is towards minimalism in structural components, avoiding application complexity and striking a balance between code elegance, application performance and programmer productivity.
