Eocene – a simple, powerful PHP OO framework

Posted on 27 January 2003 by Demian Turner

Eocene is an OO (Object Oriented) Web development framework that incorporates many proven software development practices to provide a foundation for building Web applications. It uses PHP for foundation classes and xml-based text files for application configurations. It is a simple and easy to use framework that can be used to solve a large number of Web development projects. Due to its flexible and modular design, it can also be extended to solve complex projects. The framework
-uses pure Object Oriented methodology,
-eliminates global variables (uses only one global variable),
-eliminates the use of “freestanding” codes (codes that are outside any classes or functions) and uses only classes (uses only six lines of “freestanding code” to activate the framework),
-is capable of incorporating any open source classes,
-is based on html templates for separating the views from the rest of the application (though the framework is based on templates for its view components, it is flexible enough to include mixed html and code pages if a complex view warrants such a design),
-uses a simple, flexible, fast, and powerful templating system,
-uses text-based application configurations, instead of, code-based configurations where configuration variables are defined in setting files,
-provides flexibility in folder organizations depending on application requirements, and
-leads to application development based on the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture.
