li₃ (formerly lithium) is a full-stack web framework, for producing web applications. It is written in PHP, supporting PHP 5.3 and onwards[2] and is based on the model–view–controller development architecture. It is described as adhering to no-nonsense philosophies.[3]

The project is sponsored by Engine Yard, Radify and Atelier Disko.

History[edit]

In October 2009, CakePHP project manager Garrett Woodworth and developer Nate Abele resigned from the project to focus on lithium,[4][5] a framework code base originally being developed at the CakePHP project as "Cake3".[6]

In 2012 the project gained official sponsorship from Engine Yard.[7]

In January 2014 the project was rebranded under the name li₃.

With the release of version 1.0 on June 6th 2016 David Persson followed Nate Abele as lead developer of the project.[8][9]

In May 2020 a framework also named lithium[10][11] scored the 4th place (out of 104) in the composite score of TechEmpower Web Frameworks Benchmarks Round 19[12], but it is a modern C++17 asynchronous web server based on epoll, a totally different web framework from li₃.
