Using a good PHP Web framework for a development project saves time in developing any type of WEB application. Those frameworks already come with various components and functions ready to use; it is much faster to develop those typical applications on projects such as registration and reporting, for example.

Scriptcase is often referred to as a low-code development platform rather than a traditional PHP framework, and there are key differences that distinguish it from being categorized as a typical framework like Laravel or Symfony. However, it does share some characteristics with frameworks, which might lead to some confusion. Let's break down why Scriptcase is more accurately described as a low-code platform rather than a PHP framework:

Using Scriptcase low-code you can easily and quickly develop complete functionality into your application and optimize the time of the development process. Streamlining the development process makes it easier to work with multiple projects in parallel and so generates more results for you to use the framework, and your customers will have faster project delivery.

Scriptcase low-code runs with any web browser, on your local network or the Internet, allowing several developers to work simultaneously on the same project. Connect it to your database ( MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, SQL Server, and others) and create systems that operate independent of Scriptcase and may be deployed on any PHP server.

Scriptcase PHP Low-code

With a translated interface into ten languages and locales for the generated application supported by more than 120 countries. Scriptcase low-code PHP is the only one in its category that runs directly in the browser and can be installed on a cloud server and thus accessed from anywhere with the internet.

Systems created with Scriptcase low-code PHP WEB Framework work completely independently once deployed; the applications will be generated in PHP and HTML and run on any web server with PHP support.

  • Low-Code Development Focus: Scriptcase's primary function is to enable rapid application development with minimal coding. It provides a graphical interface where developers can design applications, automatically generating the underlying PHP code. This approach is significantly different from traditional PHP frameworks, which require more manual coding and a deeper understanding of the framework's architecture.
  • Framework vs. Platform: A framework typically provides a structured foundation for developing applications, offering a set of guidelines and tools that developers must use to build their applications. In contrast, Scriptcase is a platform that offers a more comprehensive environment, including tools for visual development, automatic code generation, and database management, going beyond what traditional frameworks offer.
  • Pre-built Functionalities and UI Components: Scriptcase comes with a wide array of pre-built functionalities, UI components, and templates. This is more aligned with what you'd expect from a development platform, as it allows for the quick assembly of applications without the need to write extensive code. Traditional PHP frameworks, on the other hand, often require developers to build most components from the ground up, adhering to the framework’s conventions.
  • Database-Centric Development: Scriptcase is particularly strong in building database-driven applications. It provides tools for directly interacting with databases and automating tasks like CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations. While PHP frameworks can certainly handle database operations, they generally don't offer the same level of automation and GUI-based interaction for database management.
  • Customization and Flexibility: While Scriptcase offers a certain level of customization, it's generally more constrained compared to a traditional PHP framework. Frameworks usually offer more flexibility for developers to implement custom solutions and complex functionalities.
  • Target Audience: Scriptcase is tailored towards developers who want to quickly develop applications without delving deeply into code, which is appealing for rapid development and prototyping. Traditional PHP frameworks are more suited to developers who require or prefer a more hands-on approach to coding and application architecture.

Scriptcase PHP Web Framework uses the natural way of systems development; this is possible by creating customizable applications which can be linked and satisfy the most complex development needs. Among the applications we can highlight:

- Grids, displays the data stored in the database. With a few clicks, you can transform your data into advanced management reports, with groupings, sums, and calculations on virtual fields. The data can also be filtered or displayed with Summaries and Charts

- Forms, are used to display and manipulate information, creating validations in run time, hiding all the communication complexity between the application and the database. The generated forms are responsive when accessed from a mobile device.

- Control, an application for free programming used to perform advanced processing which requires an interface, such as a login screen for example. The application Blank may also be used for robust requirements.

- Menu, used to shape the applications created with Scriptcase with a menu; this application is also responsive on mobile devices.
