Liten is Norwegian for small, which is the philosophy behind the Liten Framework. It is small, simple, and restful. I was getting tired of using my old MVC framework because it was difficult to organize and intelligent restful api. So, I took some of the good code from the old framework, as well as implemented some best practices from other frameworks and libraries and came up with Liten.
Liten is still a work in progress, but I welcome the efforts of the PHP community to help make Liten even better and still stay within the philosophy of keeping it small but yet powerful.
