CakePHP is an open-source PHP framework which uses the MVC (Model-View-Controller) approach for web application development. The framework is highly inspired by the Ruby on Rails concept and has garnered praise for its simplicity as well as extensibility.
CakePHP has been used extensively by Fortune 800 software companies such as Cisco and Corel Inc. as well as by other organizations including anti-virus makers BitDefender, car dealership autotrader.com and men’s fashion magazine Men’s Health.
