About These Docs

Please note, this is the documentation for the Trongate PHP framework.  So, the focus here is on writing PHP code and building custom, database-driven web apps by writing code.

The Trongate Desktop App gets a few mentions is these docs.  However, the focus here will be on using pure PHP, within the context of the Trongate framework.  It's very important for Trongate to be able to stand, as a PHP framework, on its own - without any desktop software, Module Markets or other exotic assets.
