What is it all about?
Banshee is a PHP website framework, which aims at being secure, fast and easy to use. It has a Model-View-Controller architecture (XSLT for the views). Although it was designed to use MySQL as the database, other database applications can be used as well with only little effort.
* Ready to use modules like a forum, photo album, weblog, poll and a guestbook will save web developers work when creating a new website. Libraries for e-mail, pagination, HTTP requests, database management, images, cryptography and many more are also included. * Banshee is more of a hybrid, a framework with CMS functionality and ready-to-use modules. * An earlier version of Banshee has been audited by a Dutch IT security company. No issues were found.
