ATK is a special purpose framework, targeted at business applications. It allows you to build an application with very small amounts of code.

Its focus on business features makes it an excellent framework for HRM, CRM, data management and CMS type applications.


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.

ATK philosophy

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

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.
