What is GraPHP?
The goal of this project is to build a lightweight web framework with a graph DB abstraction. It should be very easy to create the graph schema with no knowledge of of how the data is stored. Also, the schema should be incredibly flexible so you should never need migrations when adding new models (nodes), connections (edges), or data that lives in nodes.
GraPHP is a tool in the Frameworks (Full Stack) category of a tech stack.
GraPHP is an open source tool with 136 GitHub stars and 5 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to GraPHP's open source repository on GitHub
Why developers like GraPHP?
Here’s a list of reasons why companies and developers use GraPHP
Be the first to leave a pro
- Full MVC. Zero boilerplate controllers, models, and views.
- Models are your schema. Defining data is up to you (but not required).
- No migrations. Team members can add new models independently without conflicts
- No DB queries, unless you want to. Transparent model makes it easy to see what happens under the hood.
- DB API is designed for fast performance. No implicit joins or other magic, but expressive enough for nice readable code.
- No CLI needed (but supported for cron and tests).
- All classes are loaded on demand when used for the first time.
- PHP 5.5+
