Swat – Another PHP Web Framework

I came across yet another PHP web development framework last night: Swat. This one is also PHP5 only like most of the others, but it at least looks like it has some style. Similar to 37Signals, the company who gave us Ruby on Rails, silverorange is mainly known for their web design work. This is in contrast to most of the other frameworks, which are being developed by programmers who wouldn’t know good design if it was jumping up and down right in front of them. For me, it means that Swat is one to keep an eye on (it’s still going to be awhile before there’s a 1.0 release).
