Key Features


Automatic Installer

No command line. No Git. No 'Composer dot phar'. No Yaml. No Packagist. Trongate installs itself. Simply download the free Trongate desktop app and set up entire database driven apps in seconds!


API Manager

Trongate's best in class API Manager sets a new standard for rapid API development. Mobile developers and JavaScript developers - you're in for a treat!


Advanced File Uploaders

Trongate sets a new standard for PHP by letting developers build highly performant features in record time. This includes some of the fastest file uploaders in the industry.


Graphical Query Builder

Trongate is the only framework that comes with a free graphical SQL query builder. So, now you can build complex table joins easily and liberate yourself from costly db mangement software.


Updates Itself

Whenever new features come out you get an alert, asking if you want it. If you want it, you click 'yes'. Then it self-updates. Another industry first! By the way, Trongate is also the first PHP framework that aims to be v1 forever!


Automatic Code Generator

With Trongate, you get a revolutionary code generator to help take care of boring boilerplate code. Your productivity levels are about to go through the roof!


Advanced JavaScript Libraries

With Trongate you can build beautiful pop up calendars, time pickers, date-range pickers and even drag and drop file uploaders in seconds!


Custom Themes

Unlike some frameworks that tether users to a particular design, Trongate lets you choose from a potentially unlimited number of design themes for your admin panels.


Custom CSS Library

Frameworks should NOT depend upon third party libraries. That's why Trongate has its own CSS library. Yet another industry first!


Modular HAVC

Trongate uses Hierarchical Asset View Controller architecture. It's like HMVC on steroids! Finally, the PHP community have a "truely modular" PHP framework.


Module Import Wizard

Easily import entire modules, including SQL data. Drag 'n' drop web development, at last.


An App Store!

Trongate's Module Market is the PHP community's first legitimate challenge to the Composer / Packagist combo. Goodbye henhouse. Hello sunshine!


We've ditched the deadwood and started a web development revolution

Thanks to Adam Spencer for donating these benchmark results.

Trongate abandons all of the things that hold PHP developers back and replaces them with genuine innovation. The result? A brave new framework that's several orders of magnitude faster than the competition. FINALLY, the PHP community has a framework that's worthy of PHP 8's new JIT compiler.

Wow! Check out all of the bullschitt that Trongate DOESN'T have!

No Third Party Libraries

No framework worth its salt should be dependent upon third party libraries! The moment you add third party libraries to a framework, you are inheriting someone else's code, someone else's rewrite schedule and someone else's problems. It's okay to use third party libraries with Trongate but they are not a part of the framework.

No Insane Frequent Rewrites

Trongate was made for developers who want to build large scale apps, launch them and leave them online for five years. Trongate was designed to be future proof from the ground up! Whenever new features are added to the Trongate framework, your apps can be automatically updated at the click of a button, without breaking your code.

While 'they' rewrite their frameworks, we rewrite history!

No More Features That YOU DON'T NEED

Template engines, unit testing, ORMs, migrations, service containers. You won't find any of that here! Same goes for all of that slow, Composer bullschitt. The days of humouring self-appointed aficionados are over. We're using pure PHP the way it was meant to be used!

No Exams Or Certification

You'll never see exams or web development certificates being sold here. That's a promise! Trongate is here to keep the doors of web development open.

And Definitely No YAML

Best of all, there's no YAML files here, at all! We're using PHP the way that it was meant to be used. Trongate is easier, faster and better.
