Lithium is a full-stack web framework, for producing web applications. It is written in PHP, supporting PHP 5.3 and onwards and is based on the model–view–controller development architecture. It is described as adhering to no-nonsense philosophies.
In October 2009, CakePHP project manager Garrett Woodworth and developer Nate Abele resigned from the project to focus on Lithium, a framework code base originally being developed at the CakePHP project as "Cake3".
The Radify also invests heavily in the framework as its primary foundation for development.
