Pop PHP is an open source, object-oriented PHP framework. It has been built and tested to run on PHP 8.1+. It is available on GitHub and through Composer. The framework is tested using PHPUnit and continuous integration is maintained using GitHub Actions.

A Brief History of Pop PHP

The humble beginnings of the framework started back in 2009 as a small library of components written by Nick Sagona. From that, the Pop PHP Framework began to take shape and the very first version of it was released in early 2012. That version made it to 1.7 in 2014, where support for version 1 ended and work on version 2 began. Pop PHP 2 ushered in a significant refactor, taking advantage of PHP 5.4, eliminating dependencies among components, separating the components into self-contained repositories, and incorporating Composer.

On April 1, 2024, version 5.3.0 was released and it continues the development and growth that the previous versions set forth.
