Tired of complex and heavy PHP based frameworks? Need a web based application to be up and running ASAP? Are you perhaps a sole developer or small team that needs a head start with your new project?

If yes, then PHPDevShell is your answer. PHPDevShell as the name suggests provides a shell for your code to run in. It was developed from the ground up to be fast, secure and to provide immediate results for the developer using it. Take your own PHP scripts and simply plug it into PHPDevShells secure menu system if you want, or take the extra step and develop your own plugin for PHPDevShell. PHPDevShell does not burden the developer with having to have an in-depth understanding of its inner workings, but doesnt stop you from digging into its core if you like too either.

Where would I typically use PHPDevShell?

PHPDevShell would typically be used to develop back-end systems for company processes. It is not a CMS (Content Management System) or an MVC Framework and nor does it pretend to be one of those solutions. PHPDevShell is essentially a ready made GUI application where you can immediately start with the development work that matters most, your application. For security and usability it already provides you with user registration and management, role management, group management, access rights security, important system settings, templates, control panels, cronjob management, menu management, plugin management etc.

Why would I want to use PHPDevShell?

PHPDevShell provides the ability for you to get a PHP back-end system up and running in an incredibly short amount of time while not taking short cuts on things such as security and resource usage. Its made as light as possible as to not interfere with your application yet allows you to heavily customise the look and feel if you have the time. Why re-invent the wheel when you can gain months of work instantly by using PHPDevShell?

What isnt PHPDevShell good for?

PHPDevShell is not a CMS (Content Management System), we believe there are plenty of great CMSs systems out there that can be used for front-end development. We do however believe that CMSs are typically too heavy for back-end systems and too difficult to modify. PHPDevShell is also not based on an MVC Framework design and the result is that PHPDevShell contains extremely few dependencies and is very easy to install and get up and running. The same goes for your own plugins that you developed for PHPDevShell.
