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.

Why choose my engine? Because it's simple - Rudolf Diesel

iZend is built with a straightforward architecture designed for organizing publications and programming services in several languages, for different media, with a responsive layout. It includes a content editor, a set of presentation models, an indexing system, a search engine with an input corrector, editable comments, file downloads, secure votes, RSS feeds, HTML newsletters, QR codes, Google Analytics, a payment system (PayPal, Payline) and more. It carefully interfaces search engines and social networks. It manages a community of users with configurable privileges.

iZend is written in PHP for Apache on Linux or Windows. It can use a database managed by MySQL or PostgreSQL or no database and take very little space on disk.
