Features

Object-relational mapping (ORM) are components that helps you to transform your databases access in a more friendly object oriented manner. Instead of manipulating records, you manipulate objects and could most of the time forget about all the SQL queries that goes behind the scene.

Code generation make developers life easier by creating files and default content automatically so you don't have to.

Edge Side Includes (ESI) allows, with a compliant gateway cache, to cache a page fully and to update only parts of the page that have changed.

Resources
