bolsites is a powerful and lightweight application framework for PHP5.
New version soon available
First of all, I am very sorry for not having spent more time on the development of bolsites, but as life goes...
Even if the last version has not been published, time did not pass in vain. The framework has evolved and many changes are to come.
I could not list them all here, but a few of them have to be mentioned.
A multilingual backend to manage the framework with your browser
Configuration files stored as XML files
Installation script for the framework
creation of new websites with your browser
Major changes in core classes
Many bugs have been removed
Tutorials how to get the best of it
Code is documented for phpDocumentor
As it seems, this framework is becomming more and more a whole cms, sorry for those of you, who expected a lightweight one, but nonetheless, you could keep it as lightweight as possible. How will be explained in the bunch of tutorials I am going to prepare for the next version.
Things that could not be promised... yet
The main goal of this framework, namely speed could not be acheived yet, but instead there are several other ways you could improve the speed of the framework. These could be topics for one of the first applications based on bolsites, a blog software, which is under development.
Version 0.0.1.2 released on Jan. 8. 2007
The configuration files where reworked and some core files have been changed. New in this version is the documentations provided as PDF file and
a sample site has been added in the download section, which should give the developer an idea of how this framework does its job.
This version does not yet contain a changelog file, but future versions will.
As this version is still alpha, it has bugs, which have been partially eliminated in new version, for latest snapshots, please visit the CVS repository.
