Nutshell is an open source PHP framework designed for rapid prototyping, testing and deployment of web-based applications. Packed with a toolbox of excellent features and plugins, code reducing capabilities and built on a customizable framework that can be adapted to suit any need, Nutshell will be the kernel of any web-based project or product you're itching to launch.
Nutshell is one tough nut, capable of handling implementation within your current PHP framework and able to work alongside any existing plugins you've grown fond of. But Nutshell is also all about speed. Code reducing capabilities make for rapid deployment with lower rendering and memory usage, making development a breeze and reducing time-to-market for any project.
Eliminate heavy code congestion on your front end with Nutshell's just-in-time auto loading function and only load the classes your script needs, when you need them.
One of our favourites and this should speed up development for you, Nutshell allows for multiple environment hosting for developer teams to task simultaneously and independently under separate directories without having one's work affect another's.
Nutshell works within your existing PHP framework and alongside your plugins to greatly reduce the amount of coding required for projects and your time to market for products.
Nutshell speeds things along with its simple DRY (Don't Repeat Yourself) approach to code reduction. Bypass PHP's plugin scaffolding and bring your own 3rd party code into your framework with Nutshell's backpacking capabilities.
