What's New in PHPMaker 2021
PHPMaker 2021 is another huge upgrade from previous version. It is loaded with a bunch of new features, including many frequently requested ones. PHPMaker is probably the most powerful and flexible product of its kind, and yet still easy-to-use as always.

Routing

PHPMaker 2021 generated applications now use Slim Framework. Slim is a PHP micro framework that helps you quickly write simple yet powerful web applications and APIs. Web servers should be configured to sends all appropriate requests to one "front-controller" PHP file, the index.php, in which the Slim app is instantiated. The Slim app contains routes that respond to specific HTTP requests. Each page in previous versons (e.g. /carsview.php?ID=1) is now a route (e.g. /carsview/1 or /cars/view/1). Each route invokes a callback and must return PSR-7 Response object. With Slim app you can use not only routing but also other advanced features such as middleware and dependency container.
