Opis ORM is a library that provides an implementation for the Data Mapper pattern, built with the following goals in mind: simplicity, productivity, and a smooth learning curve for the developers.
We wanted to create something that is easy to grasp and easy to use: no annotations, no XML configurations; just plain, comprehensible PHP code - and we believe that Opis ORM trully delivers those things.
Opis ORM takes advantage of the speed and security provided by PHP 7, and of its other awesome features, like scalar type declaration, return type declaration, etc. Making web development easier is this library's ultimate goal!
By strictly adhering to the semantic versioning rules, we guarantee that we will not introduce breaking changes during the lifecycle of a major release, making sure that every bit of functionality that will be added to the library is backward compatible and won't break your app.
The library is released under a permissive, business friendly, Apache 2.0 license. The license grants you the right to use this software for both commercial or non-commercial purposes.
As an open-source company, we dedicate a large amount of our time for taking care of our libraries. This means that you can confidently use our open-source software, knowing that we will continuously maintain and improve it.
One of the best ways you could contribute to this project is by simply telling other developers about Opis ORM. The more people are using it, the greater are the chances to discover unknown bugs or security related issues, if any.
