Add PRADO to the list of PHP frameworks you should try. PRADO is a component-based and event-driven Web programming framework for PHP 5. A PRADO component represents a combination of a PHP class, an HTML template and a specification file (in XML). PRADO components are combined to form larger components or form complete PRADO pages.
Developing PRADO Web applications involves instantiating pre-built and application-specific component types, configuring them by setting their properties, responding to their events by writing handler functions, and composing them into application tasks.
PRADO provides the following benefits to Web application developers:
- Reusability: Code that follows the PRADO component protocol is highly reusable.
- Ease of use: Creating and using components are extremely easy.
- Robustness: Developers can code in terms of objects, methods and properties instead of URLs and query parameters.
- Performance: PRADO uses a cache technique to ensure the performance of applications based on it.
- Team integration: PRADO enables the separation of content and presentation.
