Pure PHP is back!

Welcome To The Revolution

Trongate is the new PHP framework for developers who love pure PHP. It's the first (and as far as we know the only) PHP framework that has been made with stability as the main priority.

Trongate was built with a belief that PHP development should be accessible to all, without the need for self-appointed governing bodies, over-engineered standards or paid certification. We're committed to providing a PHP framework that is both easy to use and highly effective, helping developers to create powerful applications with minimal fuss.

Join us and, together, we SHALL make PHP great again!

Is This Fast Enough For You?

Trongate favours pure PHP over things like PSR-4 autoloading. The result? A brave new PHP framework that demolishes the competition based on every metric that counts. Pure PHP is back!

Thanks to Adam Spencer for donating these benchmark test results.

smarter, faster, better

Trongate is fast. Really fast. It might even be the fastest enterprise PHP framework ever. However, you should not use Trongate because of great benchmarks. Trongate's highest priority is stability. If you want to build a super performant web applications, launch them, then leave them online for five years or more, you should use Trongate.
