How did this come to be?

Reason
Originally this was planned as research tool for not starting yet another unplanned framework. Because the existing framework comparison charts were extremely shallow, I wanted to create something more technical.

Goals
The comparison topics are easy to extend, and it's planned to go into more detail. Second, this site is a plattform for minimal and lesser known frameworks in particular. The dozen of big OO frameworks don't need much more exposition, and comparing among them doesn't reveal much new.

Help Improve It
If you don't like a denomination in the selections, don't be grumpy. Send improval suggestions instead! See also doc

Fun Fact
This site is neither using a database, nor any of the mentioned frameworks.

Recommended Links

Of course the framework comparisons here cannot satisfy everyone. Legibility wasn't a goal. And simple charts cannot replace actual code investigations. But if you want to get another narrative, we recommend following sites:

http://www.phpwact.org/php/mvc_frameworks
WACT (itself a framework) has quite likely the most encompassing list. Some venerable and often overlooked entries!
http://www.phpframeworks.com/news/
phpframeworks.com has a nice blog besides the tickbox charts, lists various intersting and new (small) php frameworks
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_web_application_frameworks#PHP_2
Wikipedia has some surface itching about Web application frameworks (some misnomers like "security" instead of "permission" system).
http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=php+frameworks
Stackoverflow hosts many discussions on PHP frameworks. Most are popularity contests. Some useful information in between, however.
http://superdit.com/2009/07/22/big-list-of-php-framework/
Almost 90 frameworks listed in this blog post on superdit.com
http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Acode.google.com+php+framework
Wooah. Take care not too get drowned in the approx 2500 other php framework projects on google code. Some interesting findings.

This project is rather new. And the site pretty incomplete. The backend is also unpolished, but mostly works.
