The web engine

iZend is a MVC engine for developing in PHP well structured web applications with a content manager. It's aimed at programmers who want full control on the code they use with maximum adaptability and reusability. It's simple to understand, easy to extend, open to other components in PHP or JavaScript. The goal is to let it become your own very quickly while still keeping all the benefits of using a software program which is constantly enriched by an open source community.
