What is Akelos?

Akelos is an MVC (Model-View-Controller) platform similar to Ruby on Rails. It aims at helping programmers build multilingual database-backed web applications and write less code, which allows for the creation of uniform, simple to understand scripts. The Akelos PHP framework allows programmers to write views using Ajax, to control requests and responses through a controller, and to create and maintain internationalized applications. By using the conventions integrated in Akelos, developers can establish communication between the framework's models and databases. In order to distribute standalone web applications Akelos demands only that PHP be installed on the server.

The Model-View-Controller pattern in the Akelos PHP framework

Akelos applications are run on the same server where the Akelos software itself is located, communicating with it as it runs. An Akelos application consists of many small files instead of one single piece of code or a few larger files. The code itself goes into specific directories making it easier for programmers to debug.
