Lithium is a full-stack web application framework, for producing web applications. It is written in PHP, supporting PHP 5.3 and onwards[1] and is based on the model–view–controller development architecture. It is described as adhering to no-nonsense philosophies.[2]


In October 2009, CakePHP project manager Garrett Woodworth and developer Nate Abele resigned from the project to focus on Lithium,[3][4] a framework code base originally being developed at the CakePHP project as "Cake3".[5]

In 2012 the project gained official sponsorship from Engine Yard.[6]

The Radify also invests heavily in the framework as its primary foundation for development.
