In conjunction with a single other PHP developer, we built a completely new open source PHP MVC framework from the ground up to fill the gaps we felt other frameworks had and to answer the licencing concerns of one of our clients.

  • FOSS
  • Full MVC architecture
  • Completely bespoke, no dependencies
  • Quick and memory-efficient
  • Easily expandable without editing the core
  • Loads of pre-built tools included

My role

  • The online management pane
  • The integrated JS AJAX tool
  • The website


TwistPHP has been used on a large number of client sites for a wide range or purposes.
