PHP frameworks have been around for a number of years. FuelPHP was one of the first frameworks built for PHP 5.3. It makes use of more advanced features of the language to allow you to focus on delivering features and code for your projects. FuelPHP allows you to quickly build prototypes using scaffolding and command-line tools, thus allowing you to concentrate on the fun part of trialling ideas and concepts.

This practical guide will show you how to use FuelPHP to quickly create projects more quickly and effectively. You will learn everything you need to know when creating projects with FuelPHP, including how to adapt the project as ideas change and develop.
