Slim Framework

a flexible and powerful REST-Server

Slim is a server software which basically takes a HTTP request, calls a routine based on it and returns a response.
It relies on the same composer packages based environment like its bigger brothers laravel and symfony but is
– how the name implies – reduced to the max.

This reduction comes with a little extra bootstrapping work but if this is done you have a beautiful, flexible and powerful piece of software, which can provide backend-services for any modern app and also runs on almost every (cheap) webhost.

I already used it for a couple of Apps and do not want to miss it anymore in my toolbox.
For a bigger project I once integrated it into a behat testing framework and tested even fine-grained business logic.
