FuelPHP was born out of a simple yet powerful idea – to build a PHP web application framework that takes the best ideas out of other frameworks to build a more powerful alternative. As such, FuelPHP aims to be community-driven, meaning that the framework has many contributors that collaborate with its development, spotting and fixing bugs and adding new features. 

FuelPHP is an open-source web application framework written in PHP which implements the HMVC pattern. == History == The FuelPHP project started in October 2010.The major contributors to FuelPHP are Harro Verton, Jelmer Schreuder, Dan Horrigan, Philip Sturgeon and Frank de Jonge.
