Here is a very new project that claims to be the fastest PHP Framework available. DooPHP is a rapid development framework for PHP using commonly known design patterns like MVC and ORM, reduces development costs and helps developers write less code.
The project provides the essential to build robust web 2.0 application with a focus on seven major points : MVC, REST, URI routing, ORM, Template engine, ease of use and performance. To get highest performance DooPHP uses the lazy loading technique extensively and avoid slow PHP functions & methods. It has a small memory footprint as well. With DooPHP, you’re good to go with your 10-million-hits-per-month web apps.

With DooPHP, nothing is loaded except what is needed to build the page; no extra function calls, no extra class includes and no extra overhead. Which makes it the fastest framework in existence. But don’t take our word for it, benchmark DooPHP on your own to find out the truth.

According to their benchmarks and stress tests, DooPHP seems to perform better than CakePHP, QeePHP, CodeIgniter and Yii for making a simple echo. Tests have been done with and without caching, and of course you will get the highest performance with caching solutions such as APC, E-Accelerator, Zend Optimizer or XCache.

DooPHP features in a nutshell :

  • MVC structure
  • URI Routing
  • I18n Internationalization
  • Ease of use
  • Performance wise
  • Centralized Configuration
  • RESTful API
  • Database ORM Tool
  • Templating
  • HTTP Authentication
  • Logging & Profiling
  • Ajax Friendly
  • and more

The project is very well documented written by Leng Sheng Hong and released under New BSD License. A new and very promising PHP Framework project. More information, demos and download at

    The Tekuna MVC Mikcroframework for PHP ( is brandnew, too. Features like MVC, URL-routing, I18N, performance wise, RESTful API, templating, logging and the 100% E_STRICT compliance are in common. However, the concept is a bit different and perhaps easier to understand.
