When and Why was UserApplePie Born?
: May 2015
I (DaVaR) had a couple websites that I had running on old frameworks. They were outdated and the security was weak.
I knew it was time to update and try a new framework. After some research I came across UserCake back in 2013-2014. I was still not very
advanced with PHP, but had enough knowledge to edit and add features to the framework. I added many features and updates to my websites
with UserCake as the Framework. I would help other UserCake users out with updates, add-ons, and so on. In May of 2015 I decided to strip
down one of my websites to just the basic framework and share it with other users. I decided to name it UserApplePie because it was similar
to UserCake, but still so different. That and I like Apple Pie.
After a while I found that the UserCake framework was holding me back. With the help of fellow coders I started researching PHP PSR Standards.
I found that it was difficult coming up with my own framework with my knowledge. I decided to try a MVC style framework that I found called
Simple MVC Framework. It was a good way to learn how MVC Frameworks are designed. Soon after SMVC Framework updated to Nova Framework. I
used that framework until it got too big and not so easy to use.
It was time to create my own MVC Framework. With the help of some online videos and research, I created UAP4 MVC Framework. It still uses some
of the libraries from SMVC Framework, but the core was created from scratch. I really enjoy building UAP4 so much that I have put my other web
sites on hold. This has been a long road, but we are just getting started. I look forward to many years of improvements and additions to this
lightweight MCV Style Framework.
