ClanCatsFramework is a free open source web application framework written in PHP designed to develop HMVC web applications.

The goal of CCF is to let developers spend more time in building their application instead of searching for errors and coding core structure.


This PHP framework was originally built in 2010, as just the core of a social network platform. In 2012 came the decide to go open source and split the core apart from the social network. A year later the point has come to rethink the entire core structure and rebuild the framework to version 2. In order to reach this target CCF2 has been inspired by other frameworks like: Kohana, FuelPHP, Laravel and CodeIgniter.


Following features describe CCF's core design:

  • HMVC implementation.
  • Package and dependency management of the core and the bundles with composer Composer.
  • A modular package structure that allows having classes, controllers, views etc. bundled at different places.
  • A runtime command line interface that allow direct testing of code and completing tasks in development.
  • Class, model, controller and migration generator to speed up development.
  • ORM with CRUD design that implements a relationship mapping.
  • URL rewriting and routing system that is bound to the url generator.
