Hummingbird Lite is the definitive lightweight web framework. With an small footprint and built around good coding techniques, it'll give you just what you need to get started.
With other frameworks you get a boatload of files with encoding, mailing, caching, and a ton of other classes. And they even call themselves 'lightweight'.
We'll give you the absolute minimum platform so you can choose the best tools to do the job.
By taking the best practices from WordPress, Laravel, Rails and other frameworks and libraries, we're bringing a new way to build web sites and apps.
Good coding patterns and a DRY philosophy FTW!
Do you need a content management system? How about some internationalization?
There are readily available plugins that will help you get started with user accounts and other common tasks.
And if you can't find a suitable plugin, you may easily make your own!
Released under the MIT license, you may copy, modify and do whatever you want with the code.
Seriously, we want to raise the standards of today's web development and we would like to include every developer out there.
Just download or fork the repo and start creating!
