Fellow PHP developers, my name is Luke Keith. Two years ago Samuel Dillow and I started developing Jackal, an open source PHP framework that we believe will change the way people think about PHP frameworks.
We are still very much in our infancy, but we have released v1.1.3 online for download with an interactive demo. We would love to get some honest feedback on our framework. We are also looking for a few developers to help build our community.
Here are a few brief pieces of info about Jackal.
* Incredibly light weight
* Only loads what it needs when it needs it
* An incredibly sexy model
* Triggers are freaking easy
* 100% resource protection
* URL flags
... and much much more.
I have put together two tutorials to help you get started and you can also read our online documentation. We have also published a few of our home-grown modules and libraries for download.
I tried out the framework on my webserver, I even read the tutorial (I never read things usually).
But I got an error after it managed to create the .htaccess file. This is from the Apache log file:
[Fri Jan 21 09:32:28 2011] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] Request exceeded the limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable configuration error. Use 'LimitInternalRecursion' to increase the limit if necessary. Use 'LogLevel debug' to get a backtrace.
There are still a lot of tutorials I will be adding to the site to help people learn about different aspects of the framework like triggers, the $URI, flags, rewriting model functionality, and more. Hopefully the two that I have already provided are enough to get your feet wet.
Please feel free to post any questions you may have about the framework in this thread and I will do my best to provide an answer.
