Nova Framework

Nova 3.0 released

Version 3.0 has been released of Nova Framework, (Nova is the new name, replacing Simple MVC Framework).

The main focus of 3.0 was to place files above the document root. This meant restructuring the folders and their paths, normally /assets such as css, js files and images are placed in the public folder so they can be ran normally, we went futher and placed everything except .htaccess and index.php above the root including all images, css and js files!.

This change results in a lot of other changes, documented in the docs and will be covered in screencasts.

Full details of the changes can be read on

For the past 12 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.

In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be apart of.

Besides programming I love spending time with friends and family and can often be found together going out catching the latest movie, staying in playing games on the sofa or planning a trip to someplace I’ve never been before.
