About ATK

ATK is a business framework. It is written in PHP, and allows you to build web applications with minimal amounts of code. The only code you write is business logic.

ATK philosophy

  • Code minimization
  • Don't repeat yourself
  • Keep it simple


The framework is particularly useful for creating business applications; to manipulate data. CRM, HRM, ERP are all area's where ATK can be used to build custom applications with minimal effort. Check the demo to see examples.

What it is not

ATK is not a component framework. If you are looking for a component framework, we recommend Zend Framework or Symfony. If on the other hand you intend to write business applications and don't want to invest in code, ATK is for you.
