    Client used this awful framework for some reason. Horrible experience and developers hated it. Seriously disliked it. Documentation is awful and very spotty and there is no community for it since no one uses it. It calls itself HMVC. It was built with a very delusional concept of how the controller interacts with the view. At this point it's very far behind where the rest of the web is. No module support. My best advice is to avoid tis at all costs unless you have a lot of time to waste and productivity is not important. Or if you want everyone to dislike you. This 'framework' is years behind any modern framework. APF was a total waste of my time when I should have been learning something useful and modern.

    Had to deal with this at a customer project. It was just terrible. This "framework" calls itself HMVC but lacks of the very basics princples of MVC (and calls this "MVC 2.0"). Basically there's neither a model nor a controller. Everything is view. The template creates a so called Controller that concatenate HTML strings (mostly fetched from the view) and writes it back into the view. User input is accessed via the $_REQUEST variable. No module or plugin concept. No Composer support. Documentation is bad, incomplete and sometimes just wrong. PHP namespaces where introduced in 2014! If you want to have a good laugh check out the website and take a look at the "APF vs. other frameworks" page. Summary: just don't use it. This "framework" is 10 years behind state-of-the-art. Nobody uses it. For good reasons. APF makes PHP - an awesome language for dynamic websites - a static language.

    Awful. The last framework you'd consider. APF is an HMVC framework- the controller is in the view, basically. It's an old and very slow framework and the documentation is abysmal. Unless you speak German. Do yourself a huge favor and do not use this framework. Few people do and there's are good reason why.
