2012 年 10 月 30 日5600

Why use Kohana?

Build applications quickly

Many common components are included: translation tools, database access, code profiling, encryption, validation, and more.

Use specific libraries and tools

Extending existing components and adding new libraries is very easy.

Write commercial applications

Uses the BSD license, so you can use and modify it for commercial purposes.

A very fast framework

Benchmarking a framework is hard and rarely reflects the real world, but Kohana is very efficient and carefully optimized for real world usage.

Good debugging and profiling tools

Simple and effective tools help identify and solve performance issues quickly.

Know what the framework is doing

Very well commented code and a simple routing structure makes it easy to understand what is happening.

Work with objects and classes

This is an OOP framework that is extremely DRY. Everything is built using strict PHP 5 classes and objects.

Write your own code

There are no code generators and endless configuration files, so setting up is fast and easy.

Community support

A very active community forum and IRC channel means that most questions are answered very quickly.
